Saltburn

Synopsis:

Struggling to find his place at Oxford University, student Oliver Quick finds himself drawn into the world of the charming and aristocratic Felix Catton, who invites him to Saltburn, his eccentric family’s sprawling estate, for a summer never to be forgotten.

Quick Thoughts:

After hearing all of the praise and the division that “Saltburn” has created, I had to give this queer film a watch! There is no argument from me that there are some incredible cinematographic moments – and that includes a couple of the scenes that have caused all of the stir. But the rest of the film… I was not that impressed. Part of this was because the twist was already revealed before I was able to watch “Saltburn”. Although frankly it was not much of a twist, as there were plenty of clues along the way. Yet perhaps the main reason why I wasn’t too impressed was because I felt like I had already seen the film before. Given that it has oft been compared as an update to “Brideshead Revisited”, this is not too surprising. In the end, I leave it to you to determine whether you’ll enjoy “Saltburn” or not.
