Burning ★★★½

A profoundly meditative film that is not what it seems at first, Burning does not offer simple, easy answers to a lot of what happens over the course of the film nor should it though. Part of what makes it intriguing, especially in the final act is the utter mystery surrounding the three leads even Jong-su, who despite spending so much time with him over the film I felt there was still more to be uncovered. Also Steven Yeun is perfect as the charming yet slightly creepy friend who you never know where you stand with.
