Burning ★★★★

Never before has a film been more appropriately titled. Not only is it an accurate descriptor of the plot, it is also metaphorical for how the film's pacing builds the suspense in exponential fashion. Lee Chang-dong's thriller rewards the attentive viewer, as the story pays off you come to realize all its' intricacies. I'm sure there's even more that flew right over my head, so I'll have to revisit this again. Cinematography was top-notch. Also really liked the performances of the three leads, Steven Yeun's chameleon-like act in particular. Wish I caught this on a big screen last year.
