fascinating mystery thriller - Burning review by TD

Spoiler Alert

beautifully shot wonderfully acted, starts as a meditation on class and opportunity and relationships then becomes a sinister thriller halfway through

A slow burner set to the pace of life - Burning review by RP

Spoiler Alert

Sorry for the pun in my title but this really is a slow film which is set to the pace of life, not to the pace of Hollywood. To say much more would spoil the second half of the film. All I will say is, this is is an observation film about human characteristics. The makers of this film take a different approach to telling the more sinister parts of the story, an approach which is more realistic and far removed from how Hollywood and other South Korean films would tell the story.

Like I say, this is a slow film, and I can see why others will lose patience with it, but for me the slow pace was right. The only criticism I have of the film is that it is the film's length is far too long. Thus, I'm less inclined to watch it again. If it were to lose around 30 minutes it would become a treasure.
