A satire on modern wealth, Triangle of Sadness never fails to be boring and continually gets crazier to the point where you’ll find yourself laughing in disbelief.

Influencer models Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) go on an exclusive cruise on a superyacht in exchange for promotion despite their constant fighting. When pirates take over the boat and blow it up, they land on a nearby island with a few others from the ship where cleaner Abigail (Dolly de Leon) takes charge.

This film has brilliant commentary on the class system and where the ultra-rich and hardworking crew fall in a tier system in times of normalcy and times of chaos. The flip that happens in the script is refreshingly honest and watching the flip happen is pure insanity.

Final say: A crazy ride from start to finish. ★★★★☆
