A review of the 1998 film “Dark City”

Written, produced and directed by the Australian Alex Proyas, this is not a movie that will appeal to everyone. It is part mind-twisting science fiction like “The Matrix” and part homage to German Expressionism of the 1920s.

It looks wonderful – as dark as the title promises – but the plotting (a alien experiment with humankind) is rather confusing. Worth watching though if only for the cutting (an average of every two seconds), imagery (all neo-noir) and casting (Rufus Sewell, William Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connolly).
