FRIDAY FILM CLUB HIDDEN GEM: DARK CITY
Every Friday we have our Friday Film Club with Empire Magazine's Mark Dinning. This week Mark was over in LA on Oscar duty so Chris Hewitt deputised, admirably.
As well as looking at the week's new releases, Chris gave us a hidden gem to hunt down and enjoy. This week he chose Dark City.
The film is a sci-fi gem directed by Alex Proyas, starring Rufus Sewell, Keifer Sutherland, and an absolutely terrifting Richard O Brien. It features a secret elite manipulating the world while the human race live as unsuspecting slaves (just like the Matrix). The secret manipulators can also manipulate time and space, and rearrange the layout of a city (like Inception). It's definitely all very noir, very stylish, very sinister, and very worth digging out.
