I heard about Dante's Inferno,
But this was even worse.
Welcome to dark Sin City - a city living, which everyone thinks they are dead. Welcome to the city, where not come happy. In the twilight city of lost souls!
Recently, adaptations of graphic novels (comic books) have become very popular. And, although all the cash they collect a good, successful film adaptation still very little.
Why? Probably for the simple reason, which is in style. should be to get a really high-quality adaptation of the graphic novel, you need to create a graphic movie "- is completely under the stylized comic.
And Robert Rodriguez movie was such a success in its entirety. One could say that Rodriguez was the first person to such a genre in film introduced.
The film leaves the impression of a double - both attractive, tempting and heavy rejects.
Heavy, because in the picture there is no positive hero. They remind me of nothing more and nothing less than the procession of sinners in hell, bas-relief of London church, described by L. Vasilyeva:
"Cowardice ruffled marble folds pathetic cheeks. Open laughing deception, pleased with his success. Flattery will spread across the nose of the pig. Indifference, almost fatally, chilled on puffy cheeks. Authoritatively thundering triumph force. And quietly pohihikivala triumph over neighboring meanness. Sensuality sticks out his tongue and holds his ear to play with animal-like demon. Hatred burned rugged features of male face. Vile grinning defeated by treachery. Lying to bend thin eyebrows. and meaningless, iron gaze looked true. "
So, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez present an anthology of us sin and sinners, which would be the envy of any Scriptures. Every action the hero is not simply one of a vice, but a whole bunch of those.
And, at the same time, they, by some reason, simpatiziruesh. Most, at least.
To explain such sympathy is rather difficult. On the one hand, it is, of course, the attraction of vice, and as to the other - a simple human surprisingly, stupor, shock - call it what you want. In short, a reaction to something new, unusual and beautiful.
I look forward to continue!
