Burning ★★★★½

"To me, the world is a mystery."

This has stayed with me – and been growing on me – since I first saw it in January. The second time around, it feels much more muted, but no less haunting. The way everything spirals feels inexorable, inevitable, and the gnawing tension of a first viewing gives way to a numbing sense of resignation. It's the feeling of a great hunger that will never be satisfied.
