From the genius Lee Chang-dong, our film for June is Burning. If you liked Shoplifters, we think you’ll love Burning.
Our very own film buff Mark said “Of all the great movies I saw in 2018–Roma, Leave No Trace, You Were Never Really Here, First Reformed, Shoplifters, etc.–it was Burning that affected me the most. Stone cold masterpiece imho“. So…not one to miss!
Is it a love triangle, a murder mystery or a comment on the human condition? Whatever you call this stunning, slow-build thriller from South Korean director Lee Chang-dong, it sizzles with a cumulative power that will knock the wind out of you.
A vibrant, visceral experience.
You won’t be able to get it out of your head.
