Begins as a free-floating portrait of mischief and compulsion ...
Östlund's single-shot scenes supply their own beady-eyed concentration, encouraging us to work a bit more. Little by little, it becomes clear the vignettes are chosen to illustrate the fault lines in everyday behaviour.
Östlund's films are like controlled experiments in which he applies some form of intense external pressure and watches how his characters alter their behavior in kind.
It concerns how our compulsion to construct and comply with an acceptable public face can make us act against our own instincts and self-interest.
The definitive moment of this film was when I decided what I was going to order at Starbucks after the credits rolled.
An interesting, imaginative effort from a fresh Swedish director.
It feels a little random and scattershot, but watching it is a deeply haunting experience.
An inventive and often offbeat mosaic of human weakness.
The intricacies and relevance of some of the cultural references may be lost in translation, but the behaviour of the characters is fairly universal and the cast of unknowns do creditable, believable work.
With wit dry as bone and satire that cuts down to it, Östlund builds a picture of morality in shades of grey.
What does it all mean? I have no idea, and I wonder if director/co-writer Ruben Östlund did either.
Admirers of Todd Solondz's cinema of discomfort will find much to cringe at in this excellent dark comedy from Sweden.
Original vision of curious swedish vignettes which concludes little but intrigues at times.
