Burning (will be released here next week, can't wait)

Is this the one from Chang-dong Lee?

Ooo, I wasn't aware of this one. Definitely goes on my list.

Beautiful Boy (I'll admit, this is pure belgian chauvinism)

I dunno. Looks like a lot of....much. These films tend to fall into way too much. What other films from this writer/director would you recommend?

It is. I saw it yesterday and, even though it doesn't live up to the hype, I really liked it. The dance sequence is one of my favorite things I saw all year.
I have never seen any of Lee's other films, but I'm definitely going to make work of that.

Yeah, the trailer didn't entirely convince me either, but I liked his other movies so much I'm still excited.
Other movies of him I'd recommend are The Broken Circle Breakdown (2012), Steve + Sky (2004) and De Helaasheid der Dingen/The Misfortunates (2009). Especially that last one is a favorite of mine, a deliciously dark dramedy.

You might find TBCB to be "too much" as well, but I think it's really effective. I was really choked up at the end. Very raw.

S+S is very much a "first-time-feature" but it shows a lot of promise. A nice little romantic comedy/drama.

I don't know if his movies are easy to find/stream in the US/Canada...

I will see Beautiful Boy because of Timothee Chalamet. Really like what I've seen of him so far. Belgica was on Netflix but I don't know if it's on there anymore.

Glad to see Burning is good. I've seen all of Chang Dong-lee's films and they are great. Especially Oasis.

Mmm, not so sure about the schlock-y look of this one... hopefully, Black will deliver, and the final product will be more entertaining than the marketing has been so far.
