A Vicious Circle: The Square – Review

I’m going to start this review by voicing the reason parts of The Square were difficult to understand. It’s a niggle that I hope is fixed before release. The subtitles in this film are constantly in white, with no black outline on the letters themselves. This means that whenever the screen is white underneath...
