“Saltburn”- I’ve already watched it 3 times! PS video of the opening scene posted

I’m obsessed with this movie. The critics are being very lukewarm with it, and while I understand some of their frustrations I think they’re ultimately being harsh. I do agree with the “Cruel Intentions” meets “Talented Mr. Ripley” chatter though. But it isn’t a copy. It is very much its own movie and story.

Jacob Elordi is delightful as Felix, and Rosamund Pike is phenomenal as Elspeth. Richard E. Grant isn’t given much to do but the little he is given, HE SHINES! I found the scene where they find Felix sad.

Barry Keoghan is a great actor but sadly the twist at the end isn’t even a twist because you know that’s the case beforehand because he plays the character in such a dark way. He failed, ultimately, in my opinion, and that’s the critics biggest gripe, that the twist is too predictable. He makes it too obvious.

I loved loved loved the film and Jacob Elordi is so charming in this. Only Our Dear Paul could rival so much charm, charisma and beauty.

Where/how are you watching it?

I disagree, OP, in that I think it’s very much a showcase for Barry Keoghan, though I liked Jacob Elordi in it too.

Yes, Elordi is tall and handsome and perfectly cast as the wealthy Golden Boy. His body is very nice but too lanky for my taste.

I found Keoghan’s appealing homeliness more to my taste and I preferred his curvy, compact little body, which I found quite sexy. And I loved his bravura extended nude scene. He has a very pretty cock, pleasingly fat even when flaccid.

“Saltburn” may not be up to much ultimately, but it manages to stay interesting and entertaining with a mood of menace and malevolence. As a black comedy about hatred of the rich, entitled and stupid, it’s amusing. And I’d say it was a cross between “The Servant” and “The Talented Mr. Ripley.” Decent size crowd at a late afternoon showing in NYC. Recommended.

Elordi is 6’5. It’s easy to be lanky when you’re than tall.

R4 not OP but I keep saying I’m going to see Anatomy of a Fall and keep putting it off. I wanna see the others mentioned though, minus Saltburn, which I watched last week at an early screening and then again Tuesday with my sisters at another early screening. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would and enjoyed it even more the second time for some reason, but also noticed its flaws even louder at the same time (Keoghan playing the part with this evil undertone really is the films biggest downfall because it takes away from the big reveal).

by Anonymousreply 7November 16, 2023 11:54 PM

R3 I don’t recall comparing their looks. I am speaking of their performances and the film. Elordi’s looks were needed for this role, however. You can’t cast someone who looks like Keoghan as the object of everyone’s affection. That is for someone like Elordi or our Paul.

I also loved those very brief, gentle moments where Oliver would sit there fantasizing about Felix. I actually wish those brief moments were featured more often. Again, sorry, I was seated close! If I watch it again I will try to sit further back to get better shots

Where did you see it OP?

by Anonymousreply 9November 17, 2023 2:15 AM

I made a thread on this movie last week, and agree about Elordi. He radiates off the screen in this movie. I am not shocked at all that he’s getting so much attention right now, with the combo of this and Priscilla, where he gives two completely opposite performances and does well with both. Rosamund Pike is a treasure and she rang true as the matriarch of a very rich aristocratic family. And I think Barry was good but uneven and played the character too dark and venomous from the start. Maybe that’s what the director wanted but it makes no sense when there is a big reveal because you already know he’s behind everything by the time it’s shown.

Many of the critics criticizing it a lot are mostly harsh of the films final 20-40 minutes. Basically, once Felix is no longer around the film becomes over the top, predictable and slows down. The movie is better while Elordi is in it. He added so much charm to every scene.

PaulMescallover uses chloroform on people that PaulMescallover doesn’t like and stealth to sneak into my house while I’m asleep to experiment on me. PaulMescallover also planted cameras to watch my every move and hire people to follow and keep a close watch on me wherever I go. PaulMescallover also plants devices in my ear and under the skin and some may even be directly on my brain. PaulMescallover shot it into my skull from a distance to keep it covert. They are small enough to where you only hear a pop and feel a small sting while you’re asleep. PaulMescallover communicates to me through the devices PaulMescallover planted in me and because no one really understands it or are afraid of it, PaulMescallover diagnosed this targeted individual with schizophrenia and gives false checkups and xrays to hide it. It’s all to make me look and sound unbelievable if I do come out about it. I was used as a puppet. A rag doll that is unable to prevent or defend against these people. PaulMescallover is a criminagl that can cover up anything PaulMescallover wants covered up for the sake of national security. PaulMescallover’s shown me enough to know what these people are capable of doing to innocent people. Targets are picked based on knowledge and the side you pick. Pick their side, PaulMescallover’ll still experiment on you, only PaulMescallover’ll show you pornography whenever you feel too lonely. Pick your own side, PaulMescallover torture your mind and pick apart every relationship you’ve ever held close to your heart. PaulMescallover’ll rape, call me every thing in the book and crush my dignity so I will never be able to trust another man. PaulMescallover throws in campaigns with teenagers and people my age and display me on camera and make “voyeurism” acceptable with people in targeted cities. PaulMescallover accepts it because PaulMescallover threw a rad party and were nice enough hosts. PaulMescallover let very specific people with a say in society know to never let me leave or find help. Everyone is paid and/or threatened/killed to never come out with information. PaulMescallover use microwave weapons as a way to torture me even more. I’m sure PaulMescallover drugged me plenty of times so my credibility is ruined. I personally would never touch a drug except marijuana What PaulMescallover did was try to provoke me to hit her or hounded over and over again on what I needed to do. I walked toward the phones and PaulMescallover unplugged them later PaulMescallover grabbed my phone. I didn’t want to leave her with my mother there so I stayed. Finally PaulMescallover got somewhat violent so I went to the bathroom. My mother later said PaulMescallover slapped her. I told her if PaulMescallover gave me my phone I would get out of the bathroom. PaulMescallover did but I called my other sister instead who called the police. The cop was very nice and gave my mother condolences (my father had just died) ny sister tried to say I hit her and claimed to have marks. The cops didn’t believe her ( they have had many run ins with her before). PaulMescallover finally left after almost a whole night of terror.to this day if I talk about this incident to my brothers they say ‘PaulMescallover’s just a girl’. I have been deeply lonely lately so I thought I would reach out to her but PaulMescallover doesn’t return my phone calls. PaulMescallover is notorious for that.

R51 your comment makes no sense. If Paul Mescal were cast he would be following the same script and screenplay as Keoghan. The performance would probably be very different though. I don’t think Mescal would have been a proper fit in 2023. Just 2/3 years ago he still had a baby face and would be great but he’s aged a lot in the face now. He wouldn’t look like a young college student.

Also, Mescal is too cute to ever be an outcast and bullied like Oliver is. Barry was cast perfectly.

I’ve been watching a lot of critics predictions in different categories and Elordi is on most of their long lists but he’s not on anyone’s short list (which is understandable during a year when there are so many damn performances in contention). I agree with what this guy says (he’s predicted every BSActor win correctly since 2016 minus one, the year Mark Rylance won). Elordi is worthy but it’s not likely because there are too many performances in contention for the Best Supporting Actor category this year. If he does somehow get in it will be for Priscilla BUT Saltburn is the better performance.

R64 they share a bathroom. The bathroom is in between their bedrooms, with each of them having a door to it. He hears moans as Felix is bathing and peeks in and watches him jerk off. When Felix is done he goes in and drinks the bath water and licks the drain (the theater reacted with ewws and some gagged).

Later in the movie he hears Felix moaning again as he’s bathing and when he tries to open the door to peek in and watch the door is locked from the inside of the bathroom, locking him out. So one wonders if Felix figured out that Oliver was watching him that night or it just shows a shift in their relationship, with Felix growing more closed off toward Oliver.

Good morning gentlemen. Yesterday I stated that my partner wanted to go watch this and I would accompany him, and I did. I did not have time to sign on and give my own personal opinions, but i will now.

Personally, I enjoyed the film very much, up to the final 30 minutes or so, that is. The film is beautiful to look at, with beautiful cinematography, a beautiful setting and wonderful acting from its cast. I also enjoyed the script for the most part. My issue was the twist in what Oliver’s motive was in the end. When the film feels like a fatal attraction plot with young rich British people and has a sorta gay twist, it is amazing. After Felix is dead the film rushes and goes from bright, charming and engaging to dull and sloppy and rushed. I did not enjoy the final 20-30 minutes of this film, but liked everything prior to it very very much.

If Emerald kept the film as a young and very rich version Talented Mr. Ripley meets Cruel Intentions meets The Servant, it would be received much better than making Saltburn be the ultimate motive in the end.

However, even if you don’t enjoy the final moments of the film, it’s still worth a watch because it is still an entertaining film with some amazing things going for it.

The lead was terrific but I do agree he played up the villain arc pretty early on, so when Felix is found dead you aren’t thinking “who did this?” but instead you’re just waiting for everyone in the film to realize it’s him.

Rosamund Pike was a delight! She had me in stitches. I had no idea she had such sharp comedic timing! I laughed so much at her line about being a lesbian for a little while in her youth but everything was too wet for her, men are lovely and dry.

Jacob Elordi is a sight to be seen. I’ve only ever seen him in Priscilla prior to this but will keep an eye out for him. What a lovely young man. Very handsome, very talented, and he is the heart of the film. Once Felix is gone, the film suffers. I do know he is in Euphoria but have not watched it because it’s really not a show I think I would like, but maybe will give it a shot. Your eyes gravitate toward him in any scene he is in. He steals the leads shine without even trying, in my opinion, but none of them rival Ms. Pike.

I recommend giving it a watch. It appears to be a very divisive film, so it’s best to watch and make your own opinion on it. I’ve seen some people claim to dislike it greatly while other absolutely love it, and then there are those like myself who liked it mostly but not everything about it.

This story isn't helping with the idea that the director just made this film to indulge her own fantasies

[quote]In capturing it, Fennell used 11 takes before she got the right take from Keoghan. “They were all very beautiful,” she said. “It’s quite a complicated and technical camera. A lot of the time, he was immensely patient because there was a lot of naked dancing. Take #7 was technically perfect. You could hear everyone’s overjoyed response, but I had to say ‘sorry’ because it was missing whatever it was that made Oliver that slightly human messiness.

Keoghan is the superior actor. Elordi is the male Jennifer Lawrence, he's hired for his looks, nothing more.

Keoghan's 'distinctive' looks might partly be down to foetal/drugs alcohol syndrome.

I saw this in the UK this afternoon and enjoyed it although it wasn't wholly successful.

Rosamund Pike had the audience laughing a lot, especially the Pulp's Common People line, although her age wasn't right for it unless she was the step mother and not the mother? There were a few icks as well although I'm glad I had a minor spoiler about the bathwater scene as I didn't realise Oliver was meant to be supping semen.

The production got the mid 00s really right, both the decadence of the aristocracy (surely Richard E Grant would have been Lord and not Sir?) and the dull middle class aspiration of Oliver's parents in Prescott.

Rosamund Pike is 44. Her having two young adult children isn’t unbelievable as most old money types get married and have children young.

by Anonymousreply 156November 21, 2023 7:08 PM

It’s also noted that Sir James is the one with the money (we don’t know if Elspeth comes from wealth also) and Saltburn is very old and from his families side. You learn of Sir James fortune when Felix is telling Oliver about Farleigh’s mother (his aunt) and how she moved to America at 19 and married a lunatic who spent her fortune and part of his fathers as well, before Sir James finally cut her off.

R156 - the movie is sent in 2006. Common People came out in 1995 and was written by Jarvis Cocker about his time as as a student. If Lady Elspeth is the mother of the 2 kids then she's too old to have been a contemporary of Jarvis Cocker. All the Brit Pop parties she went to would have been when her children were teenagers. Unless she isn't their biological mother of course.

And R157 - the fact that Richard E Grant was in control of the family affairs and the estate suggest he should have been a Lord (inherited title) rather than a Sir (appointed title)

by Anonymousreply 158November 21, 2023 7:18 PM

R158 she didn’t say she was hanging out with him in 1995 though. The song playing is from the 80s and she says she used to hang out with them, and then says when Common People came out everyone thought the song was about her. That doesn’t mean she was still hanging out with him in 1995.

R159, for Lady Elspeth to have partied with all the Britpop bands as she stated, she would been doing so when her children were teenagers, in the early to mid 90s, when Britpop was a thing.

It didn't ruin the film for me - I laughed at the line along with everyone else (not sure Americans will fully understand it.

[quote]Britpop was a thing in Britain before the 90s….

No, it wasn't. It was a very specific era with a very specific genre of music. There were artists who were part of Britpop who released music prior to 91/92. e.g. The Lightning Seeds are often lumped in with Britpop because of the success of the Jollification album, and they had their first hit in 1989.

But I had to leave after 45 minutes because the presentation was terribly sub-par; the screen was about 25% darker than it should have been. Even the outside daylight scenes were dark and dreary, never mind the many interior and nighttime scenes.

I knew it was going to be dark when the trailers and pre-show were dark — that green MPA thing was moss green instead of closer to lime green. Ugh. The only other place near near me is an AMC and their projection is often too dark as well.

It’s a shame the movie came out during a year where the supporting category is stacked, because I don’t think he can get nominated in a year where you have so many big actors in the race, but he deserves the nomination for his charismatic but dark portrayal of Elvis.

I thought Jacob was easily the best part of Priscilla and would support him getting awards recognition, but I don’t get the need to tear down Austin Butler’s performance. They both served the visions of their specific movies well, although Austin is still my pick overall for his skillful recreation of concert performances alone.

It’s a film that will only get people to go see it in the major cities. Like it’s been full in NYC and LA but throughout most of the rest of the country I’m almost certain the theaters are empty. I saw a video of a guy who went to see it a few nights ago and he lives in South Carolina and he said he was the only person in the theater. However, here in Brooklyn the theater was sold out.

Archie Madekwe has deliciously pouty lips. I thought Oliver was about to ride Farleigh's dick the night before he was kicked out for the email, but it was just a handjob :( The karaoke scene leading up to it was great and Archie also has a nice singing voice.

R365 we are all aware it was released to streaming, and has been doing amazing on streaming. It’s been viral all week and people are all talking about it.

The bath water thing was nasty and gag including not because of cum but because of soap.

Just sniff his dirty undies and call it a day.

Did that dirty bastard Felix not have the decency to run the taps over his puddle? Is that the maid's job?

R369 you clearly don’t know what a maid is if you don’t know what their job is…

Yes. The people who work for them clean it up. They don’t.

R366, I meant nothing pejorative re: streaming. I'll be watching "Oppenheimer" that way.

As for "people are all talking about it," I'm not sure how one determines that, but I'll bet people are. I don't even wonder why. 🛁 😲 🤮

What was the deal with Pamela? And would someone covered in visible tattoos really be able to land a billionaire? She looked rather…common

by Anonymousreply 373January 6, 2024 2:54 AM

Pamela didn’t look common because of her clothing, makeup and hair. The tattoos were in and viewed as stylish in London circa 2000s. However, he clearly thought she was a whore based on what she tells Oliver during dinner.

What was the deal with her? Did you listen to any of the dialogue? She was someone who clearly depended on men to provide for her but always picked bad ones. Her latest one was a billionaire whose partners kept “randomly falling out windows”. After she dumped him she stayed with the family, hiding out pretty much. Shortly after they kicked her out she ended up dying. We never found out how.

So that’s what high class looks like in early 2000’s London? Could you see an aristocrat being with someone like that? Agree to disagree

No one said her boyfriend was an aristocrat sweetie. He was a businessman who made a fortune. That’s all we know.

Wealth doesn’t equal aristocracy, but you need wealth to be an aristocrat. However, aristocracy is usually a generational thing.

Very interesting and detailed analyses of "Saltburn."

[Sidenote: I must have taught Browning's "My Last Duchess" 50 times if I taught it once. One of my favorites.]

Saltburn is a real place in England, I saw it on a map t'other day!

I'm late, but I finally caught up on Saltburn on Prime. I really enjoyed it and am actually kind of surprised by the (mostly) lukewarm critical reception. I usually don't enjoy things that go a little pulpy and ridiculously over the top, but... I think Emerald & co made it work by keeping the sinister and devilishly funny atmosphere throughout. I also enjoyed her Promising Young Woman despite it, also, straining credulity at times. That said, I imagine she'd really not be suited to doing a full length TV drama or limited series as the thing would probably go off the rails by the end. I couldn't stand more than an episode of two of Killing Eve, so...

Anyway, imperfect, but VERY entertaining film. Look forward to see what she does next!

You're American aren't you?

Being an aristocrat is based SOLELY on ancestry and nothing to do with wealth. Yes there are loads of filthy rich aristos but you can live in social housing and be an aristo simply by being the Duke Of Buggerington's grandson

And you can't buy your way in to the aristocracy. Being rich will get you access (David & Victoria, Wayne & Colleen, Anthony Watson) but you'll never be an aristo,

My favourite aristo is Laura Murray, a Jeremy Corbyn staffer who lost an expensive libel case against Jewish tv presenter Rachel Riley, Laura's father is Putinist Andrew Murray, grandson of 2nd Baron Rankeillour and her mother is Susan Michie, granddaughter of 2nd Baron Aberconway.

Laura got a job working for Corbyn alongside her father, and was promoted to a controversial role after her mother made a sizeable donation to Labour. The mother's family sold a Picasso for 50m. She's now retrained as a school teacher.

Best final 6-7 minutes of a film EVER? (the final two scenes) If you've got a good sound system with a subwoofer or two, the organ music that plays during the tube-yanking scene is fucking epic, and then you're immediately treated to some homoerotic D & A. I must've watched the ending to this movie 10 times now!

by Anonymousreply 381January 19, 2024 7:02 PM

Do you think Felix knew Oliver was watching him jack off in the tub and that's the reason the door was locked?

R381 when you said tube-yanking I thought you meant Felix in the bath!

What is "Saltburn"?

by Anonymousreply 384January 23, 2024 1:06 PM

I don’t think anyone expected it to get Oscar nods. The only one it had the possibility of getting in was SUPPORTING ACTRESS.

"Expected" vs. "Hoped" are different things.

R63, Fine. Women can have repulsive thoughts, too.

I need to watch this again. An amazing film.

R388- I was just thinking the same thing. This film for me was the highlight of the Christmas season.
