Ruben Östlund’s Triangle of Sadness Wins Palme d’Or at Cannes

A Swedish filmmaker from “The Square,” Ruben Ostlund has won his second Palme d’Or for “Triangle of Sadness,” a critical satire of the rich and influencers, following his victory for 2017’s “The Square.”

Ostlund tonight joined an elite group of filmmakers who have taken two Palmes, including the Dardenne brothers who were awarded a special 75th anniversary prize this evening for their “Tori And Lokita.”

There were 21 films in the competition this year, including from some of the high-profile films like David Cronenberg’s “Crimes Of The Future and Park Chan-wook’s “Decision to Leave,” and James Gray’s “Armageddon Times  and Hirokazu Kore-eda’s “Broker.” The Cannes Festival also hosted the world premiere of some of the out-of-competition films including Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” and Tom Cruise’s latest outing, “Top Gun: Maverick.”
