Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 02/27/2998
"...Director Alex Proyas (THE CROW) treats and photographs Sewell like a film noir figure..."
New York Times - 02/27/1998
"...Relentlessly trippy in a fun-house sort of way....A visually arresting ride that offers many unsettling surprises..."
Premiere - 01/01/1998
"...Deliciously snaky performances by Hurt and Sutherland....A trippy must-see for late-night moviegoers..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/27/1998
"...A great visionary achievement....Original and exciting....It is a triumph of art direction, set design, cinematography, special effects -- and imagination..."
Empire - 10/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "This mind-wringer is sci-fi specialist Alex Proyas' best film to date....A must for anyone who takes their sci-fi strong, dark and minus sugar."

Product Description:

Upon awakening with a start in an icy bathtub in a strange room--with a woman's dead body inconveniently nearby--John Murdoch can't remember how he got there. With a police detective hot on his trail and a psychiatrist skulking around, Murdoch discovers that the key to his mystery is the presence of strange extraterrestrial creatures, the Strangers, who are experimenting with the memories of the humans in his city--from which there may be no escape. Ambitious sci-fi noir, with rich production design and a dense, Kafkaesque concept, made DARK CITY a cult classic.
