However, while Triangle of Sadness is not radically different in its approach to the content, it definitely succeeds in presenting it in a way few have done before. This is primarily because of its extensive focus on power dynamics before the characters get stranded. In fact, the ‘stranded on an island’ storyline only composes the last third of the film.

After an offseason of many huge changes, it’s expected that predictions for this current season would be off as players are transitioning and getting used to new environments and teams, but I don’t think anyone thought it would be this wild.
