Burning

Burning ★★★★

A wannabe love triangle turned into a lonesome horror story. I liked this a lot. I'm not sure exactly how much because while I can appreciate the entire film as a whole, the first half didn't impact me like the later. I understand of course it's building up to something more important in the long run. Together Yoo Ah-in and Steven Yuhn give incredible performances. One (Ah-in), I felt connected to. His loneliness is sort of what drives his search into the missing Haemi and especially this week, I understood his loneliness. Yuhn's performance is sketchy as fuck and yet, damn is it great, probably my favorite of the year. I'd like to see this again but yeah it's true this is pretty good!
