K is for Rinko Kikuchi

Pacific Rim - European Premiere - Red Carpet ArrivalsRinko Kikuchi is adorable as well as being super talented. I’ve only seen a few of her films but I’ve been seriously impressed with her performances in them.

In The Brothers Bloom (2008) she plays Bang Bang a con woman who only says two words throughout the entire film so she is just acting with her face and her body. She is so expressive that you know exactly what she’s thinking and Bang Bang is such a fun, quirky and memorable character it’s a great performance to watch.

In 47 Ronin (2013) Rinko Kikuchi plays a witch who can turn into a dragon (it’s kind of an odd film) and she does evil very well.

Pacific Rim (2013) is the other film I’ve seen Rinko Kikuchi in and boy, do I love that film a lot. Mako is a character that drives the film forward, is a total badass and also is allowed to show emotion and get upset. I’m definitely looking forward to the Pacific Rim sequel and more Rinko in a Jaeger.

I’ve recently bought Babel (2006) just because Rinko Kikuchi is in it. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet but I’m really looking forward to it.
