Burning ★★

"He's the great Gatsby."

This is a very, very slow movie. It carries a lot of tension but is barely held together to warrant it's running time. I do dig the DP's other work like 'The Wailing' & 'Tae Guk Gi'. Lots of jogging and cigarette smoke. Good use of twilight.

I guess the main guy's loneliness and privateness also was less interesting that I would've expected, even if the visitor does have a creepy presence.
