Burning ★★★★½

Given how much this is described as a slow burn, I was expecting to spend most of the runtime waiting for the payoff but I was instead pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable it is from moment to moment. The effortless beauty of every frame makes it impossible to look away and the characters are interesting in a way that feels genuine and human. I could easily see this becoming a part of my yearly rewatch rotation.
