Tequlia Posted January 29 Share Posted January 29 Burning 4/5 (MUBI) Phew, after the woeful À Nos Amours yesterday this helps to restore faith in Mubi’s “curation”. A really good South Korean film based on a Murakami short story - so basically two of my favourite things and was always going to like this I suspect. What makes it so good is the sheer amount of themes swirling around and how calmly they are handled - nothing shoved down your throat (so to speak) instead it’s left for you to pick-up on, detect and interpret. If I had any grumbles - the run time is long (but like Murakami’s novels I think if you just let them wash over you it’s fine) and I didn’t think there was the ambiguity regarding the ending/direction as some people think - I thought it was pretty clear what was actually going on, but it is very nice to have that doubt of course. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
