BURNING (15) Image

Nominated for 2018’s top prize at Cannes, Lee Chang-dong fleshes out Haruki Murakami’s slender short story to create a mysterious world of immense power; and his epic, slow-burning film immerses the viewer in the world of his characters whilst exploring male rage, class conflict and working-class struggles, as well as unrequited love and the nature of obsession. Voted top film of 2018 by Tim Grierson, Senior US critic for Screen International.
