An ultra-slick orgy of extreme violence, non-stop action, deadpan humor and sophisticated eroticism, "Sin City" was a collaborative effort of Frank Miller (the author of the graphic novels), Robert Rodriguez ("Desperado") and Quentin Tarantino. Visually, it's a stunning effort, described by Slate's David Edelstein as "a study in luminous black and white, with sudden and breathtaking splashes of crimson, chartreuse, and a particularly nauseating mustard (...) One car-ride sequence, directed by Rodriguez's pal Quentin Tarantino, is a little jewel of camera movement, lighting, and design. The raindrops are white - it's a painterly deluge". The most erotic scene occurs early in the film, when Carla Gugino, gets out of bed when her roommate (Mickey Rourke) comes back in the middle of the night. They have a very interesting relationship - she is his parole officer and a lesbian, but she still parades in front of him topless, wearing only a thong. Another nice scene involves Jaime King, playing a beautiful prostitute who has some hot sex with Mickey Rourke. But the nude scenes are just icing on the cake - the real sin of this city is violence - unrelentless and incredibly graphic.
