Burning ★★★★

watching this led me to realise that i enjoy Asian films because of the trust that they lend the viewer. Nothing is ever explicit, if you miss it, you miss it, but that isn't an issue since you go through this slow journey with the film (hence, also the trust in the audience to have patience).

At the same time, you cannot just look away because nothing is ever too clear, you can reflect but there is still an enigmatic element in which they still keep you at the edge of your seat, unbored.

That's this film. Slow moving but intense.
