BURNING

February 23 - March 10

Jongsoo is a bashful, naive, recent university graduate with no obvious job prospects. He grew up in the country but now lives on his own in Seoul. He wants to be a writer and admires American authors like William Faulkner and F Scott Fitzgerald. One day, a woman organizing a department-store lottery catches his eye and offers to fix the contest so that he will win a prize.

Burning is a smart, Hitchcockian mystery/thriller about class conflict and sexual longing adapted from a short story by Haruki Murakami and directed by Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong. (His most recent film is Poetry, which we showed in 2010).

Run time: 148 min
Critic’s Pick! One of the most beautiful scenes in a movie this year — in many years — comes midway through Burning. BRILLIANT! -The New York Times
