Also, on the SIN CITY front, I'm thinking that Basin City is supposed to be in New Jersey. The movie's got two really clear shots of an I-287 interstate information sign, and all the info I'm finding on I-287 shows it existing only in Westchester County, NY and running throught middle of Jersey (also going on personal memory here; I-287 was an often-used road in travel throughout the Tri-state area during the messenger days).

Anyway, yeah, so I figure that if you're gonna put it anywhere, stick the fucker in Jersey. Really, who the hell's gonna complain?

Also, this is possibly the funniest review of the movie, if you're someone who liked it. From the way, WAY Christian point of view. A clip:

Perhaps more disturbing than the violence is the line of thought that undergirds this movie, that each man is utterly alone and therefore pitted against the rest of society. That is the lie of Romantic individualism. The Bible tells us that we are all part of the body of Christ and, by extension that we should exist in communities. As adopted sons of God, we are not individuals in the Romantic sense, but actual members of a family network. The dangerous individualism of SIN CITY teaches us that we cannot trust any man, which results in the amorality and paranoid violence exhibited in the movie.

It's a rare movie review that attempts to both tell us about the flick and proselytize in the same breath. God love those screeching, nail-biting Christians. Endless fun for us agnostics in the room.
