2018: Films I've Watched in February (24 movies items)

"First Watched 2/7/2018 Remember last month when I mentioned the difficulty of adapting real life stories into films? In how they either become standard stories we have seen before (example: a band's origin: they go up against a record company, fight with each other, lose themselves in addiction or some other vice, then get back together or die) or become a story that is exaggerated and spruced up that it deviates from what actually happened in an effort to make it stand out more.

"Kumiko, a Japanese office lady who lives in Tokyo, has only one hobby : treasures. She doesn't have any friends, and is really bored by her job. After seeing a VHS of "Fargo", she decides to travel to North Dakota to find the money hidden by Carl Showalter in the movie. This is a gem of a movie. Rinko Kikuchi appears under a new face with this introvert and amazing character, inspired by a true story. Director David Zellner really did a good job of balancing comedy and drama - never exaggerativ"
