Burning ★★★★★

I think I may be thinking about this film too much now... burning is just pure excellence! this film really takes on the form and substance of a masterful suspense film, a smouldering study of the act of destroying something.

remarkabke how burning has effectively balanced the element of surprise with foreshadowing throughout the story. almost everything in this film has a deeper meaning to it. images and symbolisms get ominous and the viewer find themselves paying attention to details and subtle clues, as well as dissecting metaphors along the way.

despite a slow pace and challenging running time, burning will keep you hooked and captivated throughout. an one would surely realize the returns are manifold for those who invest themselves in the film.
