10 years of Flick Filosopher: dark in the city tonight
I still take heat for this one: my negative review of Dark City:
The plot is the same hoary device that’s brought down many an episode of Star Trek: Aliens are experimenting on humans in order to learn what makes us tick. The aliens are some kinda jellyfish-type things that inhabit the dead bodies of humans — men only, natch. Imagine an army of Emperor Palpatines from Star Wars, and you’ve got it. Dr. Schreber (Sutherland) helps them with their nasty experiments — You. *gasp* Can. *gasp* Tell. *gasp* He’s. *gasp* Evil. *gasp* Because. *gasp* He. *gasp* Talks. *gasp* Like. *gasp* This.
Everyone keeps telling me that is a pre-Matrix Matrix, and how can I love that film and not this one? Let me count the ways…
