Burning

Burning ★★★½

I had to really let this one simmer a while. I went in expecting a different movie because it's credited as a thriller... and I wouldn't necessarily call it that. You can argue that it is though, but it's very much the definition of a, wait for it, slow burn. I'm not sorry.

I spent 2 hours reading various explanations and analyses just to accept accept that I hadn't actually missed anything, Burning is purposely a rocky road. A long twisted bumpy trail that's a challenge by design, but eventually you realize, that's the fun of it.
