Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter ★★½

This film focuses on the urban legend mythology that spread like wildfire by an inept media looking for a story!

On paper it sounded like something I could really sink my teeth into and coincidently I just happen to be a big fan of the film "Fargo" which is the media's trumped up motivation for Kumiko being here in America in the first place!

But by the end of the film I walked away thinking it was an interesting character study but the execution of said film left me feeling somewhat deflated! Personally I find it hard to get excited about a film that is based on a bald-faced lie!

Telling the real story vs the titillating Fargo fabrication! It's a no brainer riding the coattails of Fargo's success surely guaranteed the coinage via the box office and dvd rentals!
