Dark City (1998)


This is a solidly well done noir sci-fi film that too many people did not see,  Dark, creepy, complex and full of mystery yet easily understandable to even the casual observer.  The sci-fi effects are top notch, the recreated city is visually amazing, and the almost 50ís feel to everything (sort of like a floating Cuba in space -with the old cars and architecture) is a perfect touch.  The aliens are wonderfully creepy -with hints of Nosferatu throw in for good measure.

The acting and plot are top notch.  Overall, the movie delivers on every level.  If you want an intelligent, dark, visually impressive movie that will make you think a little -this is your flick.
