Dark City

I just watched a movie called Dark City. I found it silly, over dramatic, and terribly directed. The actual story plot is almost interesting though. It’s along the lines of The Matrix, but I give it credit because it was released a year before The Matrix.
Plot Outline: A man struggles with memories of his past, including a wife he cannot remember, in a nightmarish world with no sun and run by beings with telekinetic powers who seek the souls of humans.

For a different opinion, check out Roger Ebert.

    You might be interested in Ebert’s review of it. He had quite the opposite reaction:

    I’m not sure what exactly you mean by “terribly directed.”

  2. Thanks for the URL, I love looking at different opinions. I agree that the director was extremely imaginative, but the movie somehow left me feeling like it could have been done in a much better way.
