The story of filming Frank Miller’s graphic novel series Sin City began when 90s indie phenom Robert Rodriguez (he of the semi-automatic guitar), along with three CAA agents, actually booked passage onto the River Styx and sailed into darkest Hades in order to renegotiate the 9 1/2 Weeks contract for which Mickey Rourke sold his soul. Upon returning to the surface with Demon Mickey, the filmmakers immediately shoved him in front of a black and white camera, and the result was a new film genre: Post-noir.
