There’s a ton of things to say about Damsel, but the less you know the better. Toplined by Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska, Damsel is a Western of the highest order. Skip reviews and just see this movie, but if you must read a bit more, here’s some non-spoiler stuff . . .
If you love movies that are filled with eye-catching visuals, a sublime music score, and an inspired lead performance, Kumiko, The Treasure Hunterchecks off all these boxes. Directed by David Zellner and starring Pacific Rimactress Rinko Kikuchi, the movie makes its Blu-ray debut today.
Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter doesn’t possess a narrative that’s chock full of exposition but instead opts for a more sublime form of communication. Director David Zellner’sstory of a Japanese woman’s (Oscar nominated actress Rinko Kukuchi) determined quest for a buried suitcase filled with cash is a visual and aural feast, giving us an immersive, open-ended journey into ambiguity.
