In theaters this week, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the sequel to the 2005 cult fave SIN CITY and succeeds in being an extremely stylized, high-concept film that is absolutely stunning in its reimagining of classic film noir tropes.
Directed by ROBERT RODRIGUEZ, the film’s all-star cast includes BRUCE WILLIS, MICKEY ROURKE, JESSICA ALBA, JOSH BROLIN, JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT, ROSARIO DAWSON and EVA GREEN (just to name just a few). Adapted for the screen by the legendary FRANK MILLER from his own graphic novels, SIN CITY manages to captivate as an inventive mash-up of past and future. With the graphic novel acting almost as a storyboard for the film, RODRIGUEZ tells us (on the red carpet at this year’s ComicCon) that he wasn’t actually ‘directing’ so much as he was ‘facilitating’.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is in theaters now.
