Burning ★★★★

”I think the world is a mystery.”

A way more reserved Under the Silver Lake — similarly rooting themes of creative procrastination, socioeconomic discontent, and male sexual aggression in existential horror. The morals and actions of the protagonist run antiparallel, and the focus on drawing you into that backwards mindset is heavy enough to make the ending an extra kind of icky. Can’t not mention the cinematography, too — easily some of the best of last year.
