It does reward the dedicated with a searing portrait of a man struggling with perspective, hunting for a way to bring himself back from the edge and prove himself to a world waiting for him. There's genuine beauty beneath the bustle.

Burning Man leans heavily on a scrambled chronology, and likewise feels tonally mixed up, but it certainly does keep you guessing.

Fuelled by confident direction and awe inspiring performances, Burning Man is an uncompromising exploration of how one man's grief leads him on a destructive and soul searching path to acceptance.

As a complete package, Burning Man is very good, but a little too pristine to be great.

Teplitzky's expressionist handling of all those wonderful contradictions is what makes Burning Man a resounding triumph.

The resounding positive of Burning Man is the first-class performance of Goode in the lead role, which truly leaves a lasting mark whenever the film takes its biggest risks.

Matthew Goode delivers a wonderful performance as Tom. He's a character that you want to sympathise with but he makes it difficult with some of his not-so-likeable outbursts.

A highly imaginative, deeply moving and incredibly brave film, boosted by a lead performance so intense, you'd swear the man's from another planet.

The extremity of the film's slice-and-dice approach is invigorating at the outset but may also prompt viewers to suspect they're being challenged for no good reason.

The emotional payoff is undermined by the structural play -- a strategy that distracts rather than enhances.

If this film was a car, I'd say it was over-engineered. The jangling mosaic goes on so long we lose sympathy with the main character.
