Better Late Than Never

The long promised Sin City sequel, A Dame To Kill For, finally actually exists. All credit to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, other directors would have given up on the project a long time ago, but they stuck with it, and after nearly a decade, come August we'll see if they can hit the mark again.

I won't say that the original was a good movie. Like most of Miller's writing, it lacks any trace of subtly, and the dialogue is hammy and dodgy. But it works in the context of the story, and the translation to film of Miller's art is striking. This first trailer certainly hammers home the notion that the sequel won't be losing any style points. And maybe ten years is long enough for audiences to be struck by the uniqueness again.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
