  Sin City (2005)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
With Sin City, however, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have done more than just recreate the brutal chiaroscuro of Miller's stark post-modern noir artwork, they've captured the essence and the aesthetic of Basin City (as much a character as Marv or Hartigan) and brought its universe and characters to a stunning three-dimensional life.
As a Frank Miller fan for over 25 years, I know his work and I know Sin City – and this Sin City will knock your socks off whether you are a fan or a newcomer to the dark delights of his devilish imagination and brutal style.
Here's hoping Sin City makes a mint, for there are 10,000 stories in the naked (sinful) city, and this is but a handful of them.

  City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A city is an urban area that is differentiated from a town, village, or hamlet by size, population density, importance, or legal status.
In most parts of the world, cities are generally substantial and nearly always have an urban core, but in the United States many incorporated areas which have a very modest population, or a suburban or even mostly rural character, are designated as cities.
Although city can refer to an agglomeration including suburban and satellite areas, the term is not usually applied to a conurbation (cluster) of distinct urban places, nor for a wider metropolitan area including more than one city, each acting as a focus for parts of the area.

 City status in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
City status is conferred by Letters Patent (an "open letter") and not by a royal charter but there are some British cities that predate the historical monarchy, and have been regarded as cities since "time immemorial".
Rochester was recognised as a city from 1211 to 1998.
Most "cities" are not cities in the traditional sense of the word (that is, a large urban area) but are in fact local government districts that have city status, and which often include large rural areas.

 City
A large share of a city's area is primarily taken up by housing, which is then supported by infrastructure such as roads, streets and often public transport routes such as a subway or a metro rail system.
Although city can refer to an agglomeration including suburban and satellite areas, the term is not appropriate for a conurbation (cluster) of distinct urban places, nor for a wider metropolitan area including more than one city, each acting as a focus for parts of the area.
For instance, in Paris, the inner city is the richest part of the metropolitan area, where housing is the most expensive, and where elites and high-income individuals dwell.
