Movie Review: Triangle of Sadness (2022)

Triangle of Sadness is one of the most pretentious and shallow movie I have seen to date. I am glad I didn’t see this in theaters because this would have been a waste of money. Nothing happens in this movie.

A cruise ship full of the wealthy and elite shipwrecks on a deserted island. Here on the island, their wealth and status are meaningless. The survivors now must earn their survival, casting aside the excessive luxury they were accustomed to.

The acting is easily the best part of this movie, but the writing is terrible. There is nothing subtle about this movie. Triangle of Sadness wants you to know that capitalism is bad and will take the entirety of its run time artistically and redundantly making this point. This movie could have been shorter. Maybe if this movie spent less trying so hard to be artistic and actually told a meaningful story, I could have recommended it. Instead, my recommendation is that you spend your time on better content.

I don’t have much more to say about this movie because nothing happens. There were a few interesting scenes, but nothing worth sitting through this movie for. You can stream it on Hulu, but I wouldn’t bother.

    1. Dolly de Leon’s performance was the best part of this movie. She stole every scene she was in. It might have helped that every other character was so unlikable, but you can’t fake that much command of the stage. I hope to see her in better movies. I just found out about Charlbi Dean’s death, she played such a good hateble character. May she rest in peace.

      1. So the news about Dolly’s performance was true. I’m not surprised, though — as she had an extensive theater background before jumping into the world of movies and TV. Most reputable actors here in the Philippines often start out in stage plays.
