Sin City director is no monkey

Frank Miller, co-director of the Palme d’Or contender, Sin City, has fought back against critics who complain about the film’s ultra-violence.

From the BBC:

Violence is a real catchy buzzword these days. Considering most drama since The Iliad and before is extremely violent – because that’s how people work problems out – it’s a bit ridiculous.

I don’t believe in the “monkey see, monkey do” theory of entertainment.

The Japanese have the most violent fiction and movies in the world and they have among the lowest crime rate.
