Yesterday I went to see Miller’s and Rodriguez’ Sin City.
I like graphic novels in general and I like Miller’s rough and morbid edge. I have a few comic books from his hand, notably the Batman Returns series and "Hardboiled". Sin City is a comic book on celuloid. As a movie it doesn’t really stick out but if one takes ones interest in comic books into the theatre you do have a very enjoyable couple of hours.
What struck me most in the movie was the scene where Marv is about to rip the head off Cardinal Roark. That little dialogue brought a deja vu of one of the final scenes of Apocalypse now where Colonel Kurz mumbles away in darkness.
If they ever are going to do a remake (and I am not suggesting that "they" should") of Apocalypse the casting of Kurz is easy; Rutger Hauer.
