I actually wanted to see The Square in cinemas, but somehow I missed it. I enjoyed the trailer, it looked like it was going to be a decent enough drama / thriller. It was released on DVD recently so I thought I would rent it and give it a go.
I didn't dislike it, I just had issues with it. As mentioned in my previous review of Yella; I really take issue with films in which the lead character makes the most obviously stupid mistake that leads to endlessly and mindlessly stupid results. Regrettably The Square is a film in which nearly every character falls victim. As much as it annoys me, I can admit that for the most part the events that unfold in The Square are things that sadly, actually do happen in real life.
