Burning

Burning ★★★★½

It’s remarkable. Burning is so beautiful and so ugly at the same time. I don’t really know what to make of this and that’s a really good thing. I need to rewatch. NEED. It presents a narrative that you can follow and make assumptions without needing to be handheld throughout the process. It thinks highly of it’s audience and wants to give it this gift of a film. The performances here are succinct in their own right but still present so much to take in. 

I’ve spent the last hour looking up reviews and interpretations and that’s a really good thing. I’m thinking. I’m contemplating life. I’m trying to recall everything the characters said or did throughout the film. Nothing was small talk. Everything had a meaning, whether you knew it or not. This is so wild. I want more. I have Big hunger. That sunset dancing scene was everything.
