  • Dark City

    Just saw this movie the other night on cable. I was surprised. I had caught part of it once before about half way through - it seemed strange and boring then. But after seeing the beginning I got hooked. It is an awesome film, highly suggested.

    Thanks for the plug Thanos. I'd heard it referred to favorably out on the forum and must seek it out someday soon.

      Cable...

      It has been played on cable a few times reletively recently (Over the last few months). If I remember correctly it was either TNT or USA that I caught it on. You might want to check your local listings. No sense in paying for it if it comes to you.

        It can also be bought for around $5-6 at Best Buy in the states.

              Sort of The Matrix meets Film Noir, or The Truman Show via Kafka. This guy is living in a world where each night things change - the buildings, what jobs people do, who they live with - but some people are beginning to remember the changes. It would spoil it to say much more.

                    Excellent movie, directed by Alex Proyas, who did 'The Crow' and is currently directing Asimov's 'I, Robot'.....great set design, costumes and cinematography....Kiefer Sutherland at his smarmiest, Richard O'Brien (Rocky Horror Picture Show), at his creepiest, Bruce Spence (Mad Max 2) mugging it up like mad......highly recommended.

                      Funny. That makes it sound like Dark City was influenced by the Matrix. When it was the Matrix that so obviously riped off elements of Dark City and the Thirteenth Floor and Ghost in the Shell and... oh well you get the idea.

                        This movie is very underrated. Most people who sat through all three Matrix movies would probably not even given the boxcover of this dvd a second look. Very enjoyable!

                          A "me too"

                          Dark City is an amazing movie, can't recommend it enough. Like most other people I saw it "by accident", a friend of mine rented it. Knowing nothing about the movie before hand, it blew me away.
