Frank Miller + Robert Rodriguez: Sin City 2005

Frank Miller + Robert Rodriguez: Sin City 2005

This is one of the best remediations of a comic-strip to date. Rodriguez and Miller, with ‘guest director’ Quintin Tarantino, construct a computer-generated 3d world inspired by Miller’s original drawings, perspectives, camera movements and framing, that echo Miller’s visual-narrative style, and screen characters that subtly blend the talents of the actors with the visual drawing-style of Miller, and integrate all these elements together with ‘spot colour’ and film-noir black and white…

Miller has all the draftsmanship talents of the great originators of the modern comic – especially Will Eisner, whose character The Spirit occupies similar laconic underworld story-space as those of Frank Miller.
