Bunraku is a style of Japanese puppet theater that involves puppets with highly stylized heads operated by several puppeteers. The film Bunraku directed by Guy Moshe is heavily based around the idea of very detailed theater. The backgrounds are reminiscent of a stage play  and helps in the blending of Samurai and American West culture. The film follows Josh Hartnett and Japanese musician and actor Gackt as they team up to take down a crime boss played by Ron Perlman.
