blocking radiant heat through sills>>>other options?

I've read everything about insulating the sills and other remedial
tweaks that can be done to lower the cabin air temperature.

I like the bare aluminum sills and do not want to cover them with
anything. I was thinking window tint might work instead, such as 3m crystalline.

Would the 3m tint reduce radiant heat from the sills?
I know it reduces radiant heat through glass.
If it does reduce the heat, I was planning to use it in the foot-well too.

Are their less expensive equivalents to the 3m film?
