Oh, and it has Sway in it, but not by Dean Martin...
Moria gives it their highest rating. The New York Times doesn't seem to have seen the same film we did, calling it "trippy". Variety has a mostly positive review. Roger Ebert loves this film, placing it on his Great Movies list and doing one of the commentary tracks on our DVD. His review opens with this:
``Dark City'' by Alex Proyas is a great visionary achievement, a film so original and exciting, it stirred my imagination like ``Metropolis'' and ``2001: A Space Odyssey.'' If it is true, as the German director Werner Herzog believes, that we live in an age starved of new images, then ``Dark City'' is a film to nourish us. Not a story so much as an experience, it is a triumph of art direction, set design, cinematography, special effects--and imagination.
