2005. USA. Directed by Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino. With Jessica Alba, Clive Owen. Called a “Mickey Spillane fever dream” by Variety film critic Todd McCarthy, Sin City is based on Frank Miller’s gritty graphic novels about the fictional Basin City. Name the most outrageous and lurid activity, and it happens in this town. While the film’s visuals are at the cutting edge of digital technology, its episodic narrative remains true to the archetypical noir film 124 min.
