But soon an unexpected event will happen that will overturn the established order and force some to rethink their place and importance.

I decided to write this review to make it clear in a series of positive responses that not everyone will like the film. Having wasted-truly wasted-two and a half hours of your life, you wonder where the rating comes from. But let me just tell you what’s wrong.
The movie is divided into three parts – and it’s very drawn out, as if the editor didn’t already want to watch the film and cut out the extras. Each part tells a different story, but as a whole it is a single storyline in which the characters are revealed – or rather not revealed in any way in the adequate sense of the word – at all. And this is the second puncture.
‘Triangle of Sadness’ tells a story about seemingly trivial human values – someone here gets beauty, someone gets money, and someone is in pursuit of these benefits. And that is what is repulsive – why does not a single living soul in this picture got a mind? All the characters are as stupid as possible, some from birth, some from alcohol, and some are just convenient. And in general, not a single character is well-described – they are all superficial, no one has any thoughts other than to cover basic needs, no one’s motivation is clear – a scatterbrain of one-type characters, by the way, also mediocrely acted.
Of course, it did not do without the burning theme of (un)equality of people – the painting proves that if you look closely, then all men are equal. But they managed to show it only through toilet humor – the scenes are not the most flattering, in addition, they are given a decent amount of time, apparently, to show all the shades of brown.
Another misunderstanding – to call a famous artist to show off, so that then to make it into footage for the trailer and get more viewers. But do not be fooled – Woody Harrelson appears only for five minutes to recite Marx in a drunken frenzy, and then he goes off into the sunset.
To sum it all up, this film is not saved by the philosophical thought (because nothing new was said and also interestingly played), black humor (for it is of poor quality), and beautiful pictures (the camerawork is not bad, and the colors are pleasant) – but to watch it or not is a personal choice.
