Sin City
Walk down the right back alley in Sin City and you can find anything.

Genre: Action / Gangster
Director: Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez
Distributor: Dimension Films
Cast: Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Clive Owen, Elijah Wood

A collection of interweaving stories all based in the corrupt, crime infested hell-hole that is Basin City. Heavily influenced by film-noir, the main storylines concern a hulking brute called Marv (Mickey Rourke), who is seeking the murderer of a beautiful woman who was killed while asleep in bed with him; an ex-photographer called Dwight (Clive Owen) who accidentally kills a hero cop and has to cover it up; and a soon-to-be-retiring policeman called Hartigan (Bruce Willis) who is incarcerated for a crime he didn't commit. All based on the brilliant graphic novels "Sin City", "The Big Fat Kill" and "That Yellow Bastard", written and illustrated by Frank Miller.
