Reason for embargo
This article examines the use of digital visual effects in violently disturbing films and how they reformulate them into newly observable cinematic imagery. It discusses how visual effects show cinematic violence as producing vitality and “life” as much as destroying it in Zack Snyder’s 300 and Watchmen, and Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City.
