Default Slow burning movies...

You don't see this done much anymore, movies like "The shining" where you just dive into this long slow burning journey.

Anyone have some suggestions?

And oddly enough, 'Slow Burn' the movie wasn't like this.

When I think of movies like that I think of 'The Clearing' and 'The Pledge'. Love those two. And pretty much any one of Kim Ki-duk's movies but especially the almost sans dialogue '3-Iron'.

Oh, and the master of slow pace movies, Ingmar Bergman. 'Through a Glass Darkly' or 'Winter Light'.

In addition to The Shining, just about every Stephen King adaptation (Shawshank, Green Mile, Stand By Me, Misery, Christine, Apt Pupil, et al) is a slow burn. Probably because King is such a master of building suspense and dread, and he has the confidence to take his time.
