BURN­ING

OUT 1 FE­BRU­ARY

Total Film - - Dialogue -

Based on a Haruki Mu­rakami short story, Lee Chang-dong’s thriller re­volves around Hae-mi (Jun Jong-seo) and the two guys in her life – shy, work­ing-class Jong-su (Yoo Ah-in) and af­flu­ent, con­fi­dent Ben (Steven Yeun). A lan­guid, at­mo­spheric, am­bigu­ous mys­tery, this touches on is­sues of priv­i­lege, iden­tity and male envy/rage, but re­fuses to of­fer clearcut mes­sages or neat nar­ra­tive an­swers. Jamie Gra­ham
