A secret affair. A large stash of cash. A chance to get away, and an elaborate plot to do it. And then things start going horribly wrong. That is essentially the plot of The Square, an ultra tense modern noir thriller from Australia. The plot is set in less than ten minutes, while the rest of the film is non-stop in how things get progressively worse, almost in a ludicrous fashion. You’d hate to be Raymond, but that’s how his luck ends up. It must be the affair, really, that’s causing all this rotten stuff to happen. Incredible to watch, with an ending that’ll leave you shocked and breathless.
