It won the coveted Palme d’Or at Cannes, and it’s not hard to figure out why. Writer-director Ruben Östlund (‘Force Majeure’) has crafted a wild and oh-so-cringy satire that skewers the ‘haves’ of the world. Set on board a luxury yacht, it follows a gaggle of uber-wealthy elitists and then flips the entire concept of class hierarchy on its head. Not for the squeamish (the aftereffects of food poisoning are brought to vivid life during one extended stretch), it’s still a delightfully wicked black comedy that will go down as one of the best of the year.

4.5/5 stars
