"The best comedy in years."
— Smash Cut
"Triangle of Sadness is a dark delight that has plenty to say on the state of the world we live in."
— Alejandra Martinez, We Got This Covered
"Tringle of Sadness is an utterly hilarious satire told in three acts, each more ludicrous than the last."
— Rafael Motamayor, Slashfilm
"Ruben Östlund’s latest brainy satire is a continually self-renewing yet uncompromisingly coherent opus."
— Tomris Laffly, AV Club
"The director of The Square gives a new shape a whirl with hilarious, scathing and sometimes jaw-dropping results."
— Neil Smith, Total Film
"It’s a fantastic mix of the funny, the astute, the disturbing and the brainy in the very specific style of Östlund. It’s a pleasure to watch it play out."
— Karen Gordon, Original-Cin
"Östlund has created a full-throated, roaring comedy of hate against the upper-classes. It is cynical, nihilistic and has no issue about punching down."
— John Bleasdale, CineVue
"Characters are keenly observed and come front and center over the plot. Anything can happen. Absurdity reigns supreme. Yet, at the end of the day, we know a little more about the human condition after seeing it bursting at the seams."
— Andy Howell, Film Threat
"Triangle of Sadness pokes fun at the ultra-rich, playing their undoing for laughs in the worst of situations. It’s a masterclass in cringe comedy with Harris Dickinson playing it straight throughout as he finds himself in appallingly toe-curling situations."
— Ryan Leston, IGN
"The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think. There’s a meticulous precision to the way he constructs, blocks and executes scenes — a kind of agonizing unease, amplified by awkward silences or an unwelcome fly buzzing between characters struggling to communicate."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"The points of Östlund’s Triangle are far from subtle. Vanity is toxic; fortunes corrupt; everyone loves to see an Instagrammer getting their comeuppance. But across its well-earned two-and-a-half-hour running time, epic schadenfreude keeps edging into genuine sympathy, and we feel just sorry enough for these awful people for the next humiliation to sting just as hard."
— Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
"Be warned. Triangle of Sadness rants and smirks at the state of the world over two-and-a-half hours, which is quite some running time for a satirical comedy. But it is never boring. Partly that's because the political commentary is so shrewd, and partly it's because it has a surprising amount of warmth and nuance, too. Östlund ensures that while the situations may be absurd, the people in them are as human as any of us."
