A cool, devastating midwestern mystery that weaves contemporary urban legend into its own riff on the Coen brothers’ Fargo. Short-form description does it few favours, but it’s an off-track beauty.

Kumiko is a character worthy of comparison to Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo, another being defined solely by an unreachable goal. For all of Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter’s concerns with the blurring of cinema and life, what sticks is its portrait of singular faith. The film affirms cinema as a natural home for characters whose outsized obsessions reflect each of our smaller rebellions against the oppressions of conformity.

I was impressed by how closely the Zellners have replicated a certain style of contemporary Japanese cinema, maintaining a delicate balance between fantasy, light comedy, and bittersweet drama… In films of this stripe, the camera often sits at a polite distance from the characters, whose behavior is similarly reserved, and the serene tone makes the ridiculous plot turns feel especially odd. This brand of comedy speaks to the pervasive gentility of Japanese culture.
