Week in Review: 7/30/17

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter - I really wish I liked this movie better than I did.  All of its technical elements are great.  Beautiful cinematography, great music, excellent acting, a compelling and tragicomic plot.  But man was I ever bored.  This is the kind of movie I'm always afraid I'm going to see when there's critical buzz about something.  I just don't have the patience for its beauty and when I say, "I was pretty bored, to be honest," I end up looking like some hillbilly asshole who can't appreciate fine art.  Dude, I like galleries as much as the next person, but I never want to spend two hours just looking at one painting.

My Rating: 3 / 5

Total: 1 Movie
