Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter


“The entrancing fifth feature of the Zellner brothers, Kumiko the Treasure Hunter, is like found art in the beguiling, haunting manner it combines the seemingly ridiculous and desperate with an ineffable and quiet sadness.” — Patrick Z. McGavin, Chicago Sun Times

Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter completely blew me away. Released in 2015 and directed by David Zellner, this movie is just about perfect for me. From its brilliantly bizarre plot to the performances to its unique style, everything about this movie was executed perfectly.

It’s based on an urban legend based on a true story, and after watching the movie it’s worth hearing the true story behind the brilliantly bizarre fantasy-version depicted in the film: http://www.npr.org/2015/04/24/401965548/fargo
