Burning ★★★★½

Burning is a long mystery unfolding in its own languid sense of time. As such, I wasn't entirely engaged while watching most of the film. Near its conclusion, the gravity of what it does and how well it achieves that suddenly hit me, thereby revealing its subtle brilliance. Steven Yeun gives nothing less than a masterful performance as an ominous figure whose truth and motivations are never fully clear. Burning doesn't care about providing answers, and it is a richer film for it.
