Sin City

Life is cheap. This is the message of Sin City. I suppose the clue is in the title, but watching this film kind of eats away at your soul, steals away a little bit of your humanity. Everyone in this film is corrupt, amoral, depraved and a killer. There isn't even 'honour among thieves'.

Yes, its stylish. Yes, its visually glorious. Its even well directed, produced, etc., etc. But it places such a low value on human life and reduces everything to the basest level, so it cannot be a good film. You do want to watch, to try and work out what's going on, but there isn't even a good resolution to the movie - it ends with Sin City being just as depraved and corrupt as it was at the start. Lots of people have died; violently and pointlessly.

I feel slightly tarnished myself. I'm going to bed now. Good night.
