2) Do you think Frank Miller's stories are misogynistic?
Only seen "300". I expected to like it more than I did. The palette was unremittingly bleak, and the story tried to sound cool without actually making sense sometimes. (Like, how can the priests be inbred if they're having sex with an endless stream of Spartan girls? Do they keep some female relatives around for the sole purpose of breeding?)
I wasn't impressed with the treatment of women, but I don't know if it was actually misogynistic.
