  • Triangle of Sadness lacks the sharp edges of Östlund's earlier work, but this blackly humorous swipe at the obscenely affluent has its own rewards.

    Even though Triangle of Sadness is entertaining, Östlund could’ve taken more steps to criticise the shallowness of wealthy people and social media influencers.
