“Triangle of Sadness” Watch-Alikes

Winner of the Palme D’Or at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, Triangle of Sadness is a savagely funny and wildly unpredictable satire that takes place on an ill-fated luxury cruise, and tackles themes like wealth, class, power, leisure, and gender relations. It’s also one of the films we’re screening as part of our summer-long “Weekends with the Oscars” series– come see it for free this Sunday, July 30, starting at 1:30 PM!

In the meantime, if you’re looking for more films or TV series that share Triangle of Sadness‘ flair for dark humor and social commentary, here are some you can check out with your Livingston Library card…
