Alex Proyas at his best – a brilliantly executed and intelligent film
Ever since I first saw the first Crow film with Brandon Lee, I’ve been an avid fan of Alex Proyas’ film making and Dark City is another amazing example of his cinematic expertise. Filmed primarily in Sydney and starring Rufus Sewell, Jennifer Connoly, William Hurt and Keifer Sutherland, Dark City is an incredible piece of work with an intricate and detailed story with an even more amazingly executed motion picture behind it. The sets and visual effects have been so well thought out and performed that together with the impressive acting (including many Australian actors such as Colin Friels and that tall funny looking guy from Mad Max) the film simply sucks you in and you can fully believe that the word Proyas has created exists; which is something that not many film makers can achieve easily. From start to finish, an instant classic that will surely gain cult status as the years progress.
Underrated Brilliant Film.
Dark City is all about a man who has incredible powers but doesn’t realize it. Everyone is under the control of mysterious ‘strangers’ who are injecting them with false memories/altering their reality. This man (Rufus Sewell) finally confronts these men in a battle for the city.
This is one of those films that inspires you to learn more about sci/fi. The whole movie is cold, dark and it never lights up for a minute. This movie is an underrated brilliant sci-fi film and it bares a resemblance to ‘The Matrix’, but was made before it, so there is no denying that Dark City must have been an inspiration for The Matrix.
The story is complex but develops itself as a frequently entertaining thriller. It is thought provoking, which is a lesser thing you’ll find in films today. You’ll sit there thinking about life after viewing this film. It can easily been our future if we head down the road we are on.
The performances are all very good, specially the three lead men. Rufus Sewell plays the confused lead, William Hurt plays the film noir detective and Kiefer Sutherland is the quirky side switching doctor. Don’t forget Jennifer Connellywho plays the role with great expertise. Alex Proyas much like The Crow has created this Gothic world where the sun never rises and inhabitants live in darkness. The sets and costumes are beautiful. The acting is top-of-the-line, with Sewell in the lead part. Everyone does a great job.
The villains in this film, THE STRANGERS, are creepy and will send chills down your spine every time you see them in their long black coats and hat. The costumes for them are perfect and could not have been done better, they live in the world underground and you see the different lifestyles between them and the people they control, yet live above them.
The thing that amazed me the most would be the cross between the 1950 to 1980’s, it was brilliant, the set pieces were perfect for this film. Every time I saw the buildings changing, I was in amazement. Everyone that took part in this film should be praised, this is a film that should get more attention from the general public, but is overshadowed by films that like to put more action then story in it’s plot.
