(2017) Directed by Ruben Östlund. Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West. (151 min.) R.
Swedish director Ruben Östlund’s film follows the travails of a contemporary art curator at a Stockholm museum. It’s equal parts squirm-inducing and thought-provoking, drawing some sharp divisions among the critics. It took the top prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Introduced by NCMA ArtHouse series curator John Munson.
“A strange mix of pop and profundity: archly entertaining, occasionally grating, and consistently uncomfortable” (The Guardian).
