Burning ★★★★★

I didn’t know what to expect from this movie solely based on the trailer, but I knew it was going to be something special. 

This movie surprised me in so many ways, from a point of direction, cinematography, and the subtle variations in acting methods. I’m not going to reveal the plot of this movie because the less you know the better, but it’s simple fantastic. 

The most profound detail about this film is the fact that it’s deeply human — exposing the flaws we tend to over look and just accept. There are three acts to film, that honestly feel like 3 separate movies. It’s a quiet film that creeps up on you shifting into another genre. It explores what it means to value, the power of the powerful within the economic classes. 

What is paranoia?
What is love?
What are your own limits?

This movie puts you in the experience and asks you these questions. 

However, that didn’t make the runtime feel like a snail, actually if this movie had been longer, there would be not complaints from me. It’s subtitled, but I highly recommend that people give this movie a chance at least once.
