We’ve seen it all by now. A heist movie about bank robbers doing one last job, a romantic comedy about successful women who need to find a man, a samurai-western-noir-fantasy based on a centuries-old Japanese puppet theater tradition starring Woody Harrelson…wait, that last one sounds new! Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Bunraku, a film which (to judge by these photos) looks a little bit like A Fistful of Dollars and Kung Fu Hustle shot like Sin City with a curiously familiar cast: Josh Hartnett plays the Eastwood-ish protagonist, Woody Harrelson plays a bartender, and Demi Moore, Kevin McKidd, and the great Ron Perlman are also in the mix. The film doesn’t currently have a U.S. release date, though it’ll be playing at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Readers of this blog know of my love for genre films, and films in the Midnight Madness section have been among my Top Picks from the last several festivals in Toronto including The Abandoned, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Severance, Diary of the Dead, Acolytes, Deadgirl, Daybreakers, Jennifer's Body, Survival of the Dead, and The Loved Ones. "From the streets of Hong Kong to a post-apocalyptic, vampire-plagued United States, from a town run by Kung Fu killers to the oil fields of Alberta, this year’s Midnight Madness selection will take audiences into worlds that are sure to excite, shock and thrill,” said TIFF programmer Colin Geddes.
Here is the complete lineup and schedule. All screenings are held at the Ryerson Theatre:
Saturday, September 11
Bunraku -- Guy Moshe, USA
In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Woody Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Ron Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new. The film also stars Demi Moore.

...His right-hand man is Killer #2 (Kevin McKidd), a cold-hearted, smooth-talking, toe-tapping murderer dressed in red and wielding a deadly blade without remorse. The citizens live in fear of this pack of wolves, and wait for the hero who can overthrow the tyrant...

Other ticket packages for the Festival are also available for purchase by cash, debit or Visa†. Purchase online at tiff.net/thefestival, by phone at 416-968-FILM or 1-877-968-FILM (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.,) or in person at the TIFF Box Office at 2 Carlton Street, West Mezzanine (Monday to Friday: 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. The 35th Toronto International Film Festival runs September 9 to 19, 2010.
The upcoming dramedy Everything Must Go is headed to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Based on the Raymond Carver short story, Dan Rush’s low-budget dramedy centers on a recovering alcoholic (played by Will Ferrell) “who falls off the wagon, is tossed from both his job and home, and must survive on his front lawn by selling his belongings in a yard sale.” Ferrell scored another hit this weekend when The Other Guys scored $35.6 million at the box office this weekend. While I enjoyed the film, I always want to see Ferrell in roles outside his comfort zone and his part in Everything Must Go sounds like one of them.
THR also reports that Brad Anderson’s thriller The Vanishing on 7th Street, starring Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo, and Guy Moshe’s action noir movie Bunraku, starring Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson, will play at the festival. The 2010 Toronto International Film Festival will run from September 9 – 19th.
