Burning as rage. Burning as desire. Burning as destruction by fire. All three apply in this endlessly enigmatic film about a seeming love triangle between an aspiring writer, a quirky yet mysterious woman (this is a Murakami adaptation after all) and a Gatsby-like figure played by Steven Yuen – in a performance that announced he was ready for an Oscar nomination, which he promptly got in his next film “Minari”. Made by a much-revered Korean auteur whose filmmography includes the masterly “Secret Sunshine” and “Poetry,” BURNING expands Murakami’s 10-page riddle of a story into a simmering epic of class rage that explodes into savagery toward the end, adding Murakamian touches – that did not exist in the original story – along the way: a missing cat, a dried-up well, references to Miles Davis and William Faulkner, a pasta dinner.
