Audience Reviews for The Square

  • Jan 30, 2018
    A bit long, but an effective critique of modern art culture nonetheless.
    Alec B Super Reviewer
  • Dec 09, 2017
    Though it suffers from some pacing imperfections, the film is a smart and stylish commentary on modern society, art, and human nature.
    Matthew Samuel M Super Reviewer
  • Nov 08, 2017
    Just like with Force Majeure, Östlund creates another intelligent, funny and always gripping satire centered on characters who are forced to go through embarrassing situations, questioning also what Art really means while exposing the hypocritical animals that we are.
