Sin City (2005)


Robert Rodriguez’s visual masterpiece is a gritty, violent and gory one. The stories are adapted from the Sin City pulp comics by Frank Miller and follow a hero cop trying to save a little girl from a brutal rapist, a sociopathic street thug avenging the death of a dead hooker and a vigilante trying to prevent war between the cops and the prostitutes. Visually, the film is beautiful and attributes the comic books very well but it also attributes the film noir movies of the 1930s and 40s. The dialogue is quick and to the point, the violence is prime and the whole film feels like one giant murderous ballet. The entire cast has put everything they had into this and is probably one of the best films of the last 10 years. It’s truly stunning.
