… Sin City.
Well, we just saw Sin city as a family, and apart from a few initial jumps from my mother the rest of my viewing was remarkably uneventful. No tantrums or interruptions – bliss. The plotline was really good, if a little disturbing, but it's the artistic influence and visuals that I found the most breathtaking. It was as if each frame of the film had started life being inked in by hand by an artist rather than from a camera. There wasn't a moment of film that wouldn't stand alone as a piece of art in its own right.
But enough from me. What did my brother have to say about the latest comic spawned masterpiece. His insightful and concise comment was:
Well, that was a bit…...."noir".
Really?! No shit Sherlock…
