And to top it off, he is a suspect in several murders. Enquanto busca juntar as peças do seu passado, ele luta contra um submundo secreto, controlado por um conjunto de seres conhecidos como Os Estranhos, que possuem a habilidade de colocar as pessoas para dormir, bem como alterar a forma da cidade e a rotina de seus habitantes. I hope these won't be the last of a dare I say it? Sinopse: John Murdoch acorda sozinho em um hotel estranho, e descobre que não só perdeu sua memória, mas é procurado por uma série de assassinatos brutais contra prostitutas. Our hero is also followed by an honest detective, Insp. The story is so fantastic and Proyas' nightmare world come true in that movie.
Bumstead, who just wants answers to the murders and gets involved in the mystery too. Schreber, and Rufus Sewell is a properly confused yet determined John Murdoch. Our hero wants to look for one location that could unlock the mystery to everything. It deserves its place with the Matrix, 12 Monkeys and others, pioneers in a field so changed usually for the worse since Star Wars and since earlier sci-fi classics. Altogether, I think Alex Proyas had a stroke of genius in the making of this movie.
This is a movie that is excellent brain food. Questions keep coming up but, are their any answers to all these questions? I had to resist the urge to talk like a Stranger after seeing the movie a few times. The screenplay was written by Proyas, Lem Dobbs and David S. Watch for the Strangers' clock, views of the city and John's memories. Now Murdoch must find a way to stop them before they take control of his mind and destroy him.
Great for a fight scene, but because the rest of the movie focuses on John Murdoch's quest to discover his past and the eerie, ominous happenings in the city, the climax seemed hastily thrown together, as if the crew all of a sudden remembered they had a deadline to meet and could no longer continue the plot in the previous fashion. It has an old school comic book feel to it. Synopsis John Murdoch awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he has lost his memory and is wanted for a series of brutal and bizarre murders. Proyas takes ideas and ambience from many other movies but integrates them all neatly into Dark City. Richard O'Brien and his character's whole race creep me out every time I see the movie, but he's especially frightening and a strange character.
Rufus Sewell plays his role with conviction and passion. The film stars Rufus Sewell, Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connelly, and William Hurt. I couldn't imagine a more strange and frightening experience. John Murdoch awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he has lost his memory and is wanted for a series of brutal and bizarre murders. The story doesn't follow a certain order of rule, instead there is some mind games and puzzles in the film, that causes watchers to be active in each minute and motivate to the movie. While trying to piece together his past, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of beings known as The Strangers who possess the ability to put people to sleep and alter the city and its inhabitants.
Review: Dark City being directed by Alex Proyas, who directed the dark thriller The Crow, I had to see this movie. As the story unfolds, it just gets more interesting. There are some heart-stopping images in Dark City. The ring of the hotel phone breaks the silence-- a strange man on the other end tells him he must leave because there are people looking for him. Synopsis 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. The look of the city is quite a sight.
Some of my other favorite scores by him are the Dark Crystal and Last of the Mohicans. The story is the best. As we follow our hero, we learn more about him. This is an original, dark, engaging, and one of the best movies of 1998. It's especially quiet at midnight, hehehehe.
Many critics say that William Hurt's character, the detective, and Jennifer Connelly's Emma Murdoch could have used a little more development, but I think part of the point of Dark City was that you don't really know who people are not to mention yourself. Another strong point here is the acting is excellent. A man who wakes up in a bathtub has no memory at all. The forty-ish era yet strangely futuristic city is known to be populated, and yet it is ominously empty hence one of Hopper's main themes, isolation in large cities. Dark City has been passed over by so many critics it's depressing.
Now Murdoch must find a way to stop them before they take control of his mind and destroy him. The style of everything is a nice 1940's style, from clothing to the cars. He discovers that some ominous beings are coming after him. This movie never gets old. One of the most original dark sci-fi movies I've seen in a long time.
