    The Godfather

    ★★★★

    a.k.a The Diane Keaton movie...

    An iconic piece of work laden with memorable quotes, Al Pacino's panache, garrote, eye-popping violence, treachery, loyalty, passions, sweat, blood, and tears. What else? There's a damn cute Kat...blah blah

A naked body’s incinerated with orange hues fuming the air, and the echoes of bated breaths have remained deep in the bones. Burning revolves around a poor country boy Lee Jong-su, who claimed to be a writer yet not once do we ever see him write. Maybe…
