A metropolis bled morally dry, Basin City aka Sin City is the site of three torrid tales based on books by Frank Miller. They follow several larger-than-life characters — including those played by Jessica Alba , Bruce Willis and the late Brittany Murphy — through their lives and, for some of them, their deaths.

Co-director Robert Rodriguez "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" describes Nancy as "the sexiest person in that world" — a standard that the sultry actress found daunting to live up to. When she asked Rodriguez to hire a choreographer for additional help, he said no. The young actress scored the role of the troubled stripper the old-fashioned way — by taking a seat on the casting couch and waiting for Rodriguez's approval.
The film places women in a power position, which Rosario Dawson believes is the reason women will flock to see the film. I think absolutely. We are very in control of what we are. We know what our assets are. We make money off of it. We call the shots, which I think is really powerful. The guys get their balls ripped off and the girls get to do it and will.
