Sin City, yeah!
Karen and I went to see Sin City this afternoon. We left Jake behind, which turned out to be a good thing -- way too violent for him. Almost way too violent for me. I didn't do a Joe Bob Briggs-style amputation- or decapitation-count, but it was up there. Fortunately, none of it was particularly realistic. Good stuff, however. I can't think of a movie which captures the look and feel of a graphic novel quite as well as Sin City . . . The Crow comes close. Not a great writing weekend. I've done a fair bit of critting for others, and a lot of thinking about my prologue. Lev has given me a lot to chew on. Leading with my villains has thrown more than a couple of people, so I may go back to an older version of the prologue where I opened with one of my protag, and quickly segued into my villains -- first, clearly identifying them as such. That dumbs it down a bit, but clarity is paramount. D
