Sin City

Saw it on Wednesday. Liked it, say a 4 out of 5. It's been compared to Pulp Fiction; the movie it reminded me more of was Natural Born Killers. The stark black and white style works well, and it keeps the gore from being the focus, but the plot didn't quite mesh.I've seen quite a few reviews.

Doc Russia loved it, "outstanding." Virginia Postrel wasn't as fond of it. She points to this review done as a B&W comic page. The dude at APCB missed his screening, and was bummed. He points to this review.

No gay hookers: no horrible stereotypes, no eye candy for me.

A female friend had the same reaction to the name Sin City that doc Russia's wife did: that some femanist groups were angry about it.
