This all said, Dark City is immensely entertaining, as well as visually dazzling; the film's look is something like The Crow but even more imaginative. Proyas has obviously looked long and hard at a wide range of foreign films, most obviously The City of Lost Children (1995) and Zentropa (1991). He's assimilated their influences into his own idiosyncratic version of an American-style noir.
Directed by Alex Proyas. Written by Alex Proyas, Lem Dobbs, and David S. Goyer. Starring Rufus Sewell, William Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland, and Jennifer Connelly.
