The resurgence of cinema seems undeniable, almost warranting the inclusion of a Martin Scorsese black-and-white sequence to herald its return. The year has been jam-packed for cinephiles, kicking off earlier with Barbenheimer, followed by the much-anticipated duo of Killers of the Flower Moon and The Killer. Now, making its mark in the midst of this cinematic cavalcade, we have Saltburn.
In a year where Irish talent has continuously charmed audiences worldwide, one luminary, in particular, stands out: Barry Keoghan. Amidst the buzz of Irish stars, Saltburn emerges as a testament to Keoghan’s prowess. Despite garnering mixed reviews upon its departure from theaters, Hollywood’s recognition of Keoghan remains unwavering.
Saltburn, with its seemingly delightful eccentricity, adds a quirky charm to the cinematic landscape. Admittedly, its departure from theaters may have come swiftly, leaving those who missed its theatrical run feeling a pang of regret. However, rejoice, for now is the time to mark your calendars for its streaming debut.
How to watch ‘Saltburn?’
For those eager to catch Saltburn’s offbeat tale, the wait is over. As of today, Prime Video offers the opportunity to delve into the explicit escapades of Keoghan and Jacob Elordi. Amazon’s recent confirmation of Saltburn’s arrival on the platform in December 2022 comes as a relief for cinephiles who prefer the comfort of home viewing.
