Readings of Sin City

The following links are readings and opinions about Sin City.

A reading is more than an opinion. A reading is a consistent interpretation viewing the text from a single perspective. Opinions may be consistently positive, negative or mixed - "loved this, hated that; liked him, hated her" etc. A feminist reading would examine the consistency of how males/females are represented; Sin City can be read as a legitimisation of violence; it can be read as depraved, barbaric, soul-less and anarchic; it can be seen as purgative, allowing people to harmlessly release pent-up aggressions etc. There are many more examples. You will be required to construct a resistant, unified reading.

Consider some of the following. You will be required to provide a RESISTANT READING of Sin City.
