Burning

Burning ★★★★★

Based on a Murakami short story, Burning is about class in modern society; the wealthy who can do whatever they want, the poor who cannot get a job or a break; the people who get lost when moving from a local society to a trans-national one. It is a love story in the first hour-and-a-half and a slow thriller in the last hour.

Beautiful and ugly, Burning has to be one of the best movies of 2018
