Dark City

The year before Matrix and more than a decade before Inception came Dark City. Perhaps The Matrix’s all-around brilliance and incredible special effects cast a permanent shadow on Dark City. Yet it is a compelling and fascinating story in its own right. And I can’t help but think Nolan’s incredible shifting cityscapes owe some debt to Dark City. Totally worth watching if never quite achieving the giddy heights of The Matrix or the sheer cleverness of Inception. (Criterion)
