  1. I think what annoyed me most was the “Oh, but it’s NOIR” argument. Because even ignoring that it doesn’t actually excuse something made 60-odd years later, most noir isn’t remotely like it. I mean, no noir femme fatales were *that* useless, and no noir heroes were *that* hypermasculine. In fact, most noir is about men who *think* they’re the alpha dog who’ll get the girl and save the world, then fail horribly after it turns out they’re useless at it. In contrast, Sin City is… well, yeah.
