Burning ★★★★★

Works like a circle, everything rotating around a central idea. Every line, visual choice, all of it works toward that idea. So much so, even on my third viewing, there is still much to extrapolate from the experience. The metaphors are blatant, but that's exactly the point. As clear as they are, the characters within the film, and the audience, remain unable to fully understand their world and those around them. Definitely one of my absolute favourites. Such a rewarding experience that only strengthens with time and thought. Watch!
