Burning ★★★★½

Just captivating in image and suspense. 

Really really slow burn, and, as confident as Ash is she understood this and knows what happened, I am not. 

I think there’s a metaphor for class division in here as well, but trying to decipher this strange murder mystery noir was enough for me. 

Cinematography is very Terrence Malick. I could do with a bit more plot and a bit less
aimless following around, but I dig it. 

Definitely recommended for the SoKo cineasts out there.

EDIT: after thinking about the film and what I might not have been noticing or paying attention to, this film warrants a rewatch, and sooner than later. 

There’s a lot more than the surface Under Silver Lake narrative here, which is equally as engaging as the subtext weaved throughout.

Bumping half a star to account for my ignorance on this one.
