A nicely put together film - The Burning Plain review by DB

Spoiler Alert
19/12/2009

I liked this film although I was dubious about renting it. It turns out to be well made and enjoyable, the twist is good as is the ending. It shows things from a childs point of view and I liked the way it was scripted, shot and acted. Overall I would recommend it.

Red Hot - The Burning Plain review by PT

Spoiler Alert
01/08/2014

A wonderful non linear film all coming together with the denouement. Outstanding cinematography (the shot of the geese under the bridge is burnt into my retina) and superb acting , especially Charlize Theron as Sylvia, a cold, promiscuous and tormented soul. I loved the ending, so simple, but so, so deep.

Hollow - The Burning Plain review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
21/08/2009

Burning Plain starts off so well, a sense of mystery about where the journey is taking us, backed with some excellent cinematography. Arriaga tries to weave the three strands into some logical format yet fails terribly. Everything revolves around sex, taboo and denial multiplied three fold. A sadly hollow concoction ensues where you feel little connection with either camp and just don't care above the conclusion of their journey. Given the talent onscreen, Burning Plain is a real waste.
