I'll be honest when I say that one of the only reasons I was interested in this film initially was because it was Gackt's American film debut. However, after seeing it the film, I can say the Japanese star was not the only thing that kept me watching! The style is rather refreshing, keeping you aware of the fact that you're watching a staged performance, but the performance itself draws you into its realm like any good film should. It's not the sort of thing that every audience will enjoy, but if you're up for an adventure and trying something new that just might surprise you in the end, I definitely nominate Bunraku. (It's not mainstream, despite having big-name stars such as Demi Moore, and was not offered in my local theater or store, so I ordered it offline. No problems there, for those interested in that aspect.)
