Burning

Burning ★★★★

I see and understand where both the criticism and praise come from, and after reading some reviews I think people are giving it far too much credit for themes that it does not particularly develop upon (the class/socioeconomic division comes to mind), but for its 148 minute runtime, I was enthralled by Burning. By its ambiguity, by its aura, by its mystery. Certainly not for everyone, but I think those willing to engage with it and its deliberately slow pace will find themselves rewarded.
