Stylistically speaking, René Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City works so well because it remains faithful to the visual style of noir (fast paced, violent, gritty and stereotypical), while treating it as a parody. See how self-conscious the art of poster has become, after the style of photo realism took over Hollywood: Walk into a Blockbuster store and just glance over hundreds of titles. They all look the same.
