Burning ★★★★

Tense as hell and really well-acted.  It’s fitting that a movie titled Burning would be such a well-executed slow burn, but I’m sure I’m not the first person to make that incredibly insightful observation.

I found it quite gripping on the surface, but I was also intrigued by the many layers that the film subtly flaunts.  It honestly feels like so many things flew over my head while still showing me just enough to make me aware of their existence.  Whether that’s entirely good or entirely bad, I can’t say for sure yet, but I can say that I will be back for round two in the near future.
