Burning

Burning ★★★★½

Burning is a slow-burning, visually striking film made by Lee Chang-dong who creates such realistic/engaging characters and narrative to the point where you get lured into the narrative itself and are forced to think and be observant as some things are left up for you to interpret and answer for yourself. The level of tension slowly builds as the film progresses and constantly surprises you and goes places you wouldn't expect it to go. The music adds an extra layer of tension and also feels like a character itself.

Burning is an absolutely stunning film, it will take you places you've never been before. All that is required is your patience...
