I liked it more than I thought I would based on the "too on the nose" criticisms. Yes, it's on the nose, but it's also fun and takes some interesting turns.

Like, the *themes* might be broad and obvious, but the narrative isn't predictable.

I'm talking about Triangle of Sadness, btw, not The Square. But I liked both.

i love triangle of sadness

the moment(s) in the last third when you realise what’s happening to the power dynamic is extraordinary

section 2 of this was really the best. Disagree with the "on-the-nose" assessment. All that is "on-the-nose" about this film served the narrative primarily. Feel like there has to be an air of conceit for "on-the-nose" to become an insult. In this instance, it was just good humoured, ol' fashioned F.U.N.
