This still is from the movie Sin City. The movie is shot almost in completely black and white except a few exceptions. One of the colors that is used is yellow. The character above is The Yellow Bastard, a villain in Sin City. While the color is yellow often has very positive connotations and symbolic meaning, The Yellow Bastard is portrayed with the darker meanings of yellow. The color is symbolic for the cowardice and illness of The Yellow Bastard. The black and white used in Sin City helps emphasize the importance of these select colors. While most films use subtle color placement, the contrast in Sin City truly exaggerates the dark symbolic meaning of yellow for The Yellow Bastard.
