10 Easy Rules All The Women Of 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' Follow
The trailer for 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' wants women to know exactly where they stand...which is as glorified blow-up dolls. Sure the trailer is only a little over a minute long, but Frank Miller and company use that time to show exactly what to expect from this side-quel to the 2005 hit film. Disguised as 'gritty' film noir where the men are
sociopathic men and the women are dames who can only pick from the career choices of stripper, prostitute, gold-digger, or girlfriend. If they want to be 'well-rounded' they're allowed to pick two of those options as long as they follow the rules.
#1 - Women don't have agency.
A bold title like 'A Dame To Kill For' let's you know right out the gate that agency is something for the guys, not the dames. Ladies need not worry about frivolities like protecting themselves…that's what big buff men are for. After all, they have to defend their property.
#2 - Being fully clothed is forbidden.
Women in 'Sin City' don't need silly things like pants, or actual shirts. Drunkenly cavorting about planning murder in heels and a bustier is all in a day's work. Of course, everyone knows she'll have to find a dude to actually pull the trigger or the universe will implode.
#3 - You are desirable pieces, not a whole person.
When you have a film that uses color to pull focus only on specific details, you have to wonder at the choices when the only time women appear in color is when they're being sexualized — seen here — or idolized — seen later by referring to the woman in the blue dress as an angel.
