With a huge, well-chosen cast and the blessing of Miller, who was on set as Rodriguez's co-director, Sin City is a gloriously stylized world unlike anything you've seen before on screen.

While Sin City on screen evokes the same feeling of bottomless decadence and dread that the novels do, there is one crucial difference -- you can put the novels down.

Once the novelty of its considerable razzle-dazzle wears off, the film just sits there, because Rodriguez has made one simple, but fatal, mistake: As cinematic as they are, Miller's graphic novels aren't movies.

A redemption saga as overripe with religious allegory as it is anything else, in search of a confession booth or maybe just the hard stuff straight up or even a cold shower. But you won't simply leave it behind. It hurts too good.
