    ★★★★½

    incredible writing- outstanding performance- emotionally investing story. I’m a sucker for a story about the black sheep. 

    The only critique I have for this film is that we do not get to see Alan wrestling with his sexuality in his adult years. It is something that is discussed, but only once are we able to see the impact that it has on his emotional wellbeing.

    Please for the love of god keep this woman behind the camera. Emerald is a genius and my new favorite person in film solely because of Saltburn.

    In telling a story that highlights the intersection between insecurity, infatuation, and narcissism, Emerald takes incredibly real feelings and warps them in a way that shows their extremes. By doing so, she creates very real connections with the audience by telling an absolutely unreal (insane) story. 

    Literally no notes. The acting was captivating,…
