Several loosely-related crime stories set in a corrupt city.

It used to be one of my favorites. After a number of viewings, once the shock of how cool the visuals are wears off, it looses a lot. Still a very interesting movie, though.

y two cents review on Netflix sums it up: "A stark, brilliant look at what morality really is, but with unapologetic dark humor. Visually stunning to boot." A faithful rendering of Miller's original vision, this is perhaps one of the most visually inventive and captivating films I've ever seen. Not to mention that the ensemble cast is extremely strong. Mickey Rourke's performance, in particular, is one of the great overlooked roles of the year. ( )
