Following the success of “Promising Young Woman,” Emerald Fennell delves into another daring venture with “Saltburn.” This updated rendition of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” immerses audiences in a world of privilege, dissecting human behavior’s transactional facets. Fennell’s direction, coupled with lush production values, crafts a wickedly mean and surreal narrative. Barry Keoghan’s unsettling portrayal of Oliver Quick, infiltrating Jacob Elordi’s aristocratic realm, adds layers of tension. While the film effectively entertains and provokes, Fennell’s penchant for overexplanation during the denouement slightly diminishes the narrative’s impact, deviating from the tantalizing ambiguity seen in her previous work.
