earlier this week: Bunraku

In the future guns are outlawed. But people still fight with swords and fists. A drifter and a samurai team up against a crime lord.

Bunraku is a blend of Sin City and Speed Racer with a bit of Tank Girl, Kill Bill, and a lot of fighting. Makes Sin City look naturalistic. Josh Hartnett, Gackt, Woody Harrelson, Ron Perlman in his best Rob Zombie costume, and narrated by Mike Patton of Mr. Bungle/Faith No More/Tomahawk/Fantomas. Lots of fun.

Special note to Kevin McKidd (formerly Lucius Vorenus in HBO's Rome) as Killer No. 2 (the crimelord keeps nine killers in his gang: lessers are promoted as the nine best die peacefully in bed die) who Fred Astaires his way through combat.
