    Burning

    ★★★★★

    Based off Murakami's short story "Barn Burning", it takes just several small scenes from the story and turns into a completely enveloping, poetic, eerie, and sophisticated work of storytelling leaving you feeling more and more uncomfortable hours following. After the film finished, every scene continued to play through my memory as I tried to piece together every little detail to decipher what truly happened.

Lee Chang-Dong really understands the subtleties of human psychology in terms of paranoia, intent, suspicion, and desire. What a powerful film. Definitely will watch again.

The cinematography plays well with the constricting background music of flourishing piano of the bourgeoise, to the point of confusion as body…

    Here is literally my first draft of my thoughts immediately after watching this film (Lots of spoilers, lots of rambling, very extra):

    Sensuality, sexuality, as water.

    Archaeologist digs up pieces of a male figure from a shipwreck – dredging up. oliver and emilio touch the lips and the chest of the figure without looking at one another. pairs of swimtrunks hang on faucets, showing buldges through the fabric. The men have three conversations by an old basin of water while…
