Sin City (2005)

sin_cityI saw Frank Miller’s Sin City again the other day and it was even better the second time around! Suffice to say that I noticed much more hidden details which I missed the first time.

I really like the style, the use of color, the setting although I never read the comics. The comics served as storyboard and it is quite stunning how the scenes imitate the comic in every way. It’s not so much an adaptation of a comic book it is a “transfer” to film and as such it’s cool. There’s one scene in the bar in the middle of the movie which ties the three plotlines together neatly, although this movie is not about plot lines it is about style, about a world in black and white except for a few things, like blood, eyes, hair and a yellow bastard, all brilliantly delivered.
