      Sin City: Extreme Embodiment of Formalism

      At midnight, I watched the legendary "Sin City," which is a bloody film that is defined as an R-rated film. My heart is full of fear, but I can't help the temptation of that rich color, maybe more than just color.

      There is a deep sentence at the beginning and end, I love you, but it seems to be two kinds of feelings.

      In the beginning, in the black-and-white city, a charming girl in red with red lips, like her skirt, lit up the night sky of the city. She did not know, at...

      Sin City--The Many Flaws of This Movie

      Those who click into this film review and like this film, please do not continue to watch. You may be attacked, so quickly click back to exit. Looking at this score, I was really silent. I admit that the shooting technique is very good, but this plot is ridiculous. It's as shocking to me as your mother's English patient was to you.Before I opened it, I thought it would be a wonderful one-man show, and I...

      let me tell you

      The benevolent see benevolence, the wise see wisdom, and those who pretend to be B say that I pretend to be B!
      I heard the term violent aesthetics while watching "kill bill" and heard about the movie together. Finally, on the occasion of this summer vacation, Zai Yanzi got the high-definition version.
      The story has been using black, white and gray to shape a world that is serious and serious, and through red, blue, yellow, and some other filters, it reveals the unseriousness of the...

      Sin City

      A film with violent aesthetics in black and white. Fortunately, it is black and white, otherwise it is estimated that the shot of blood spray must not last.
      The three directors are united in common, but the film still embodies some of the unique color images of Quentin Tarantino - cruelty and beauty coexist.
      There are three stories in the movie. I played it on PSP so I didn't watch it carefully, so I was a little confused. After thinking about it later, the story is still ok. But I...

      That bright red............

      I watched it twice and still want to watch it again.
         This movie is magical. That bright red is a metaphor in my heart. To accomplish everything that ordinary people cannot accomplish in ordinary life.
         Women, they are a bright red light, in the whole black and white movie, only the lips and hair of women are bright, like a flame. Their graceful enchanting is like a goddess. Everyone wants to drink good wine, so it is no wonder that countless heroes fought and shed blood just to...

    Creation Background

    "Sin City" was born in 1991, by the famous comic master Frank Miller.
    However, if Miller is concerned about his work, it is Hollywood's intention to adapt. From the beginning, he thought it was not feasible. Not because the film format is not suitable for expressing these stories, but because Miller understands that the film industry is bound to distort his work.
    Rodriguez has always been adventurous. From the ultra-low-cost "Elegy of...

    Filming Process

    The cast of the film soon began to take shape. As early as the preparation stage, Rodriguez told Miller that the cast of the film would be extraordinarily strong. Because Rodriguez knew that when the actors learned of their project and would be completely loyal to the original, they would come in. Such reliable, fresh and exciting material can easily attract the attention of a large number of actors. Rodriguez said: "I met Mickey Rock...

    Post Production

    Because the visual and light effects in Miller’s work cannot be achieved in reality, Rodriguez used similar techniques in "Very Little Spy", allowing the actors to stand against a green screen background and use the most advanced high-definition cameras. Framing. After that, the special effects department added the computer-generated comic pattern to the background.
    The high-tech equipment and well-trained technicians needed for the...

    Evaluation action

    Sin City consists of three unrelated stories: Hartigan's half-life journey, Marv's lonely revenge, and Dwight's urban adventures. The three men with completely different personalities all have a brute force that is not afraid of death and a deeply loved woman. The three stories all take place in this depraved, ruined, drunken sin city. The links between them are only a few irrelevant NPC characters: Nancy, who grew up in the blues...
