Looking forward to the Sin CIty: A Dame to Kill For preview on Monday. Tried to talk a friend who hadn’t seen the first, or read the comics, into coming with me.
HIM: Do I need to see sin city 1?
ME: Yes. Because a reasonable person might HATE it.
HIM: Wait. Hate it?
ME: It’s polarizing. Not to everyone’s taste. Have you ever wished you could watch a Jim Thompson novel while quitting heroin cold turkey? That’s kind of the aesthetic. But with more misogyny.
He declined to join me, and suggested I not take up a career in sales. The tragic thing (in multiple ways) is, my day job is marketing. But if the movie is great at being what it wants to be, I don’t want to come out and deal with someone who’s just not willing to appreciate that.
