Frank Miller's "Sin City" : The Making of the Movie
Film noir "Sin City" is a fetishistically faithful big-screen rendering by director Robert Rodriguez of award-winning writer/artist Frank Miller's hardboiled graphic novel saga, using digitally created settings to perfectly evoke Miller's art. The movie is set in the grim and gritty world of Basin (aka 'Sin') City, an urban jungle populated by predators and low-lifes, where everyone's on the wrong side of the law, even the cops. This breathtaking exploration of an iconic film includes Rodriguez's screenplay, comics panels and production shots, cast and crew interviews, concept designs, prop and costume photos, and exclusive commentary from Miller and Rodriguez. Fans of noir, Miller, Rodriguez and "Sin City" should buckle up and hold tight! Warning: Adults Only.
