Burning ★★★★★

Let’s sign a petition for Lee Chang-Dong to adapt all of Murakami’s books into films because this man captures the essences perfectly: felines, wells, jazz, American literature, masturbation, sex, loneliness, brooding introspection, meandering mood, metaphorical dreams/illusions, female obsession, etc. A dead-or-alive Schrödinger cat, an invisible fruit getting peeled, a writer that doesn’t write, a well that nobody seems to remember, a woman who disappears, a man who’s constantly bored, a conundrum that doesn't get solved and a fire that leaves no ashes behind...Like seriously, what do you talk about when you talk about Burning?
