The Movies: Dark City

One of my favorite movies, Dark City, has just been re-released on DVD.  Most DVDs like this try to sell the poin that this “Director’s Cut” is better than the first, and that the movie is exactly how the director wanted it.  This time, I have to agree.  The movie shines in this version.  If you never saw this, you should.  It came out a year before the Matrix, and has almost the exact same themes.  I argue that this movie is better, because Dark City avoids guns and Kung-fu and favor dialogue and setting.  Oh, the setting!  Dark City is a visual wonder and It makes me sad that more people haven’t seen it.  Oh, did I mentio that Jennifer Connelly is in it?  Jennifer Connelly.  Do yourself a good turn and check this one out.
