A great movie

I remember, when this movie was released, there was not so much buzz about it but I still ended up watching it with my two of my buddies in the theater. To be honest, we were completely stoned when we went to watch it and the only thing I could remember was that my friends were constantly fidgeting and fighting on their chairs and I think the movie was pretty weird but I sure didn't have a clue wh... read more

It took me a second viewing to really appreciate this film. The concept and visually unsettling look into a future world set in a dated period is exceptionally engaging. Definitely worth a look.

Dark City is a great link between noir and science fiction that it’s all played on a beautifully gloomy atmosphere, made of an enchanting cinematography and impressive scenes. Plus, it disorients who's watching and digs on humanity feelings. And who care if the point of the story is clear a little too early, but Rufus Sewell performance - I think he's actually an underrated actor, weird Hollywoo... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" A mind mess of a movie, this film deals with a man who isn’t sure if his life is real or not. While The Matrix became a pop culture success, Dark City seemly fell by the way side. Until Roger Ebert, declared it to one of the the best films, that he has seen that year. DVD sales and rentals, did the rest."

John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell), for allegedly committing a string of murders, is being pursued by the police and a mysterious group of bald albinos in black trench coats and fedoras known as the Strangers. Murdoch tries to discover his true identity by chasing his childhood memories to their source at the idyllic seaside community of Shell Beach, a haunting vision of a sunny paradise that every"
