This week sees the premiere of Kumiko - The Treasure Hunter, the film based on the bizarre tale of a Japanese woman who thought the bag of money from the Coen Brothers' Fargo was real, and who went looking for it. The titular Kumiko is played by Rinko Kikuchi, so what an excellent excuse to dedicate a quiz to her!

Rinko Kikuchi is a fascinating actress to keep track of, with her choice of roles being eclectic and quirky to say the least. The directors she has worked with form a veritable most-wanted list here at ScreenAnarchy, and she has proven herself capable of shining in even the strangest of roles.
Therefore, once again I'm going to use a gallery of close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which movies (or shows) they're from! No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (earlier if someone has all eleven of them right).

And here she is as Kumiko in Kumiko - The Treasure Hunter.

This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz, but all others do. So please browse through the gallery. Click on the edge of this picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!

The Sky Crawlers for the closer. LOVELY.

CORRECT. Given the history with these quizzes of squeezing in an animated one, that title was an obligatory requirement from the start!

2 - 47 ronin
4 - Pacific Rim
5 - Babel

Ard VijnMarch 20, 2015 10:21 AM

All correct!
Four identified now, and that leaves 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10...

brett smithMarch 20, 2015 1:35 PM

2 -Norwegian Wood
7- The Brothers Bloom

CescuMarch 20, 2015 2:10 PM

3 - Assault Girls.

Ard VijnMarch 20, 2015 7:35 PM

I think you mistake number one and number two... but given that we know 2 already (47 RONIN), I'll have you claim this as 1, which indeed is NORWEGIAN WOOD. And 7 is correct as well!

That leaves 3, 6, 8, 9 and 10...

Ard VijnMarch 20, 2015 7:35 PM

Is the right answer!
That leaves 6, 8, 9 and 10...

Ard VijnMarch 20, 2015 7:37 PM

Right track, but wrong answer.

Alex HigueraMarch 23, 2015 12:08 PM

10 is from the lovely maps of the sounds of tokyo

Ard VijnMarch 23, 2015 6:38 PM

Correct!
That leaves 6, 8 and 9...

Art VandelayMarch 24, 2015 6:52 PM

6. Kill (Assault Girls 2 entry)
8. Sideways (Japanese remake)

9. Nobody Wants the Night

Ard VijnMarch 24, 2015 9:21 PM

That concludes the quiz...
