What the internet really thinks about ‘Saltburn’: All the best Letterboxd reactions

Now that we've all had the weekend to watch Emerald Fennell's Saltburn, we've rounded up the best reactions so you don't have to. Think of it as either a preparation for what you're about to see if you haven't, or a communal shock horror of realising "he did what to his cousin?!"

In more paramount words, Saltburn is so grotesque and sadistically hedonistic, that you'll be drawn to it like a moth to shiny things. Barry Keoghan is absolutely fearless, unpredictable and provocative, he will leave you questioning if you too want to leave Saltburn. There is also much to be said about the rest of the exceptional cast that includes Jacob Elordi, Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant, Alison Oliver, and Archie Madekwe as they not only heighten the pure upper-class opulence in the film but commit to a level of bluntness that perfectly captures how vapid the early 2000s were with a black satirical spirit. Exploring this masterful performance, it's hard to ignore the gorgeous square cinematography, diabolically trapping and engorging us with the movie soundtrack of the year, that include songs from Lady Gaga, MGMT and Flo Rida.

British cinema is officially behaving badly, leaving us wanting more, and we thank you Emerald Fennell for delivering one of the best films of the year.
