  • Excerpt: Movies about martial arts and I have never really mixed. I don’t really know why as I can appreciate how difficult it must be to make a movie of that genre. Still, it’s just never been up my alley. I remember about a decade ago when “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” was all the talk and I was excited to see it. I didn’t care for it. I wanted to like it, but didn’t.

Bunraku (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: This is a love it or hate it film. The director goes out of his way to keep any reality from creeping in the movie, but the acting and dialog is on a level not usually associated with films like this. If obviously fake sets pull you out of the story, don’t watch this film (and don’t go to any stage productions for that matter either). However, if you can get in groove with the movie’s bizarre rhythm, you will find yourself thoroughly entertained.

Bunraku Blu-ray Review

31 October 2011
  • Summary: Directors in love with movies aren't an unusual phenomenon, and their work can be brilliant and inspired. Tarantino, Bertolucci, Scorsese and Woo are just a few examples of innovative talents who have drawn creative fire from cinematic giants who preceded them. But a cinema of homage risks becoming disconnected and incoherent unless it remembers to do the essential work of telling a story and entertaining an audience.

  • Excerpt: Bunraku ’s premise involves a level of fanboy wankery that makes Sucker Punch look restrained. The film, written and directed by Guy Moshe (of 2006’s child-trafficking drama Holly ), is set in a post-nuclear-war world in which guns have been banned and all of civilization’s still-copious violence is carried out with swords, fists, and the occasional axe.

  • Excerpt: Synopsis: Bunraku blandar estetiken från Sin City med upplägget från Kill Bill och skapar ett visuellt fyrverkeri du aldrig sett maken till. Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, Ron Perlman och superstjärnan Gackt möts i årets snyggaste och mest häpnadsväckande slagsmål - i vad som redan är en blivande kultfilm. I en postapokalyptisk framtid kommer The Drifter – en mystisk främling - till en stad styrd med järnhand av The Woodcutter.

  • Summary: En stiliserad ultravåldshistoria som skjuts i sank av den alltför väl tilltagna speltiden. Bunraku har helt klart sina brister, men också en originell stil som vissa kanske attraheras av. Bilden är sisådär medan ljudet imponerar. Dessvärre helt tomt på bonussidan.
