Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund, the director of Force Majeure, returns with The Square, one of his most audacious pieces to date and winner of Cannes' prestigious Palme d'Or. A spot-on, no-holds-barred satire of the more vapid foibles of the postmodern art world, the film follows Christian (Claes Bang), the curator of Sweden's most cutting-edge art museum. (An index of the elitist and possibly doomed nature of the contemporary art world, the museum is located in a former palace.) Imperious, self-centred, and hopelessly befuddled, Christian's attempts to promote his exhibits are deflected by personal misfortunes and culminate with a less than successful online campaign designed by two twentysomething chuckleheads who have been inhaling even more rarified air than Christian. *Sweden Official Oscar Submission, Best Foreign Language Film, 2018 Academy Awards.
