SIN CITY is out on a new 2-Disc Blu-ray set this week. This was one of those uber-cool projects that actually lived up to its hype. There had been previous films with digitally created environments (SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW), but SIN CITY really used its technique to create something memorable. It wasn’t just Frank Miller’s graphic novels brought to life; it was a mad dream of of a city, a crystallization of every film noir vision of mean streets hiding dangers in every shadow. Frank Miller tried his hand at this kind of thing a second time with THE SPIRIT (which came out on home video last week), but the results fell flat, suggesting the importance of Robert Rodriguez’s contribution to SIN CITY. Check out the trailer for a brief trip down memory lane.
