    One Saltburn Moment Evoked ‘Squeals’ Behind The Scenes That Had To Be Edited Out

    “Saltburn” was shot by Linus Sandgren, the same cinematographer responsible for the grainy textures of “American Hustle,” the Technicolor razzle-dazzle of “La La Land,” and that shot of an elephant pooping on the camera in “Babylon” (an underrated film worth seeking out, by the way). Together, he and Fennell conjure up some gloriously lush imagery in “Saltburn,” not least of all during Oliver’s bathwater hijinks. Fennell described Sandgren to Entertainment Weekly as “the most profoundly unshockable person” she’s ever met, which only made his reaction to the tub scene all the more amusing.

    “The Swedes are famously very … they’ll talk about anything. And when Barry started to rim the drain, Linus squealed like a little girl, and we had to edit it out, and he was like, ‘F—,'” Fennell recalled, laughing. Far from being annoyed, this was exactly the response she wanted:

    “That is the thing — if in the room on the monitor, you are all feeling like, ‘Whoa, holy s—,’ then it’s the most exciting thing in the world. Because it’s not just that something’s incredibly sexy, or at least I think it is; it has an involuntary physical response actually, that even when you are not physically supposed to respond vocally because you’re filming, you do that because it’s something that you can’t help but respond to. And it’s those moments where you know that you are getting to something that is incredible.”

    To be sure, if Fennell needed confirmation this scene would hit the way she’d hoped, Sandgren’s reaction must’ve been all the more encouragement for her to continue pushing the envelope with the film’s libidinous shenanigans. What “Saltburn” lacks in deeper meaning, it makes up for in being an entrancing, beguiling experience.

    “Saltburn” is now streaming on Prime Video.
