Visualizing Sin City

I'll get back to my job market comments later today, but what I really want to talk about is Sin City. On Blogdex, I found Film Rotation's comparison of panels from Frank Miller's graphic novels and their big screen realization in Robert Rodriguez's film adaptation. Some of the matches are uncannily precise, as the author, mediamelt, points out. The film is really growing on me, and I enjoyed the film's self-conscious presentation of this virtual noir world.

Also check out this Wired article on Rodriguez and Miller.

Sin City was amazing, and I'm really looking forward to your write-up on it. If you like, I have the actual comics scanned electronically. It really is uncanny how close to the comics the movie is, in both plot and cinematography.

I can send them to you (or anyone else) if you think it will help, so you can see for yourself!

Titus, scroll down about four entries for my review. It's not very thorough, but I really did enjoy it. I've read one of the SC volumes, so there were several shots in the "Goldie" narrative that were very familiar.

Ah, that's true. For some reason I was thinking that you were going to do another entry about the cinematography. Either way, I've scanned some of the more memorable scenes from Sin City in their original comic book form. I think that I may even give it another watch this weekend. Enjoy!
