The film Bunraku took the art of filmmaking to a whole new level with the Bunraku Art Experience in Los Angeles this week. The film stars Josh Hartnett, Ron Perlman (fresh off of Drive -- don't miss our Drive review) and is directed by Guy Moshe.
The event celebrated the September 30 release of Bunraku with mixed media artist Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell. The artist unveiled a series of original art pieces that were inspired by the film.
The Bunraku Art Experience took place at the famed Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard and celebrity guests abounded including Grey’s Anatomy’s Kevin McKidd and legend Mario Van Peebles.
Bunraku is the story of what happens when a drifter (Hartnett) and a Japanese warrior (Gackt) arrive in a town marred by extreme violence. Woody Harrelson plays The Bartender, a man who distills wisdom with his drinks. Perlman is the leader of all that is evil, along with his girlfriend Alexandra (Demi Moore at her devilish best).
The film describes itself as a hybrid of “past, present, fantasy, reality, Samurai and Western.”
