25 Years Ago, Innocent Sci-Fi Movie Beats ‘The Matrix’ to the Punch

Many compliments are in full Matrix in 1999 was directed at Hugo Weaving. The evil representative of the Smith monument can be anywhere at any time, and as it is, few can escape from the clutches. Matrix took pop culture. References, rip-offs, stuff, and moral intimidation were everywhere, though at the time Shrek Same to you A scary movie parodied it, we all hope they are not.

Dark City, despite being declared Roger Ebert’s best film of 1998, it did not enjoy a strong meme. He didn’t enjoy anything, really, beyond the two-tier awards show and the lack of box office returns. Most reviewers were not as enthusiastic as Ebert, who said he was impressed by the film along the way. A Space Odyssey Same to you Metropolis yes, but no one was too strict. And everyone can agree that the product is amazing.

News about City of Darkness legally it is necessary to mention that Matrix reuse some of its elements, and are encouraged to debate their merits. Some passed by and suspected Matrix I ripped off his predecessors. It’s a simple accusation, but you can see where it comes from: ordinary schlubs with an aversion to melanin are exposed to the true nature of their existence, and then grow into elite revolutionaries with superpowers who must fight against in turn, the one who exalted above. his fellow villains but go a little crazy in the process.

But while Matrix Anime and Hong Kong martial arts influenced him. City of Darkness is pure noir. Rufus Sewell’s John Murdoch wakes up in a haunted hotel to a dead woman, a mysterious postcard from Shell Beach, a terrible case of amnesia, and a phone call telling him to move his ass (something else. Matrix is damaged). He does, but not before taking a moment to help a wandering goldfish, inadvertently convincing William Hurt’s Inspector Bumstead that he’s not dealing with a villain. Throw in Kiefer Sutherland’s fearsome doctor and the brilliant Jennifer Connelly, and you have all the ingredients for a classic Raymond Chandler classic.

But there is a sci-fi version, which is difficult to discuss City of Darkness without spoiling it. New Cinema is worried it will be difficult contemplation without spoiling it, and forced into a Sutherland voice-over intro that went, “Hey, you popcorn haters, ‘Rosebud’ are we going to keep mentioning? The girl was the man Kane sled. “Director’s Cut mercifully drops this conclusion, and suffice it to say, when Murdoch witnesses that the whole town went to sleep at midnight before a bunch of guys in pirate uniforms show up to distract people and reform. buildings and their thoughts, a murderous rap suddenly became the least of his worries.

Murdoch of Sewell seems to be in need of cheap whiskey and cigars.

If Matrix why do you think your life is a lie, City of Darkness It makes you wonder if life, as you understand its true meaning, is a lie. It’s the weirder, cooler, more interesting, scary little brother to the simple tale of Neo. Having the facts of the situation explained to you may answer some of your questions, but it also raises more. Some of them those Questions will never be answered, but you have to keep going anyway. You can argue that Matrix implement his best ideas, but he has City of Darkness who sits with you at night.

Also, for the most part, it was as exciting as it was when James Berardinelli first said that it was “as visually interesting as any film I’ve ever seen. ” The suggestions for the big reveals aren’t as interesting as they sound, either City of Darkness He is fighting the final, final battles. But everything that leads up to it – the professional dancers, the huge number of telephone booths and typewriters, the tall buildings that collapse and distort orders – is and sweet.

Some of these can be compared to the vision of the director Alex Proyas, who previously supported the stupidity of the style. Crow. In a recent interview with vfxblog, Peter Doyle of Color argued that the film was made in a short, exciting time where digital effects became powerful enough to do great work but it was still very limited how everyone in the team could able to interact with the director instead of being pushed to a given conference line. no understanding of the big picture.

And a great picture inside City of Darkness getting… amazing.

New Line Cinema

Screenwriters Lem Dobbs and David S. Goyer also deserve credit. It may be a bit of a stretch to show that City of Darkness It’s a dark film indeed, but that doesn’t stop Murdoch’s quest to find answers on Shell Beach. Everyone has heard of it, but no one can remember how to get there, and in the end you want Murdoch to succeed so that he – and you – can enjoy a place that is not a shadow line or a train station. The under-appreciated Sewell plays Murdoch as a brooding, self-deprecating hero who takes every turn and turns out to be a confounding disgrace. It’s a drama that adds to the tiresome quest to find out what’s going on, and the pathos when the poor guy gets a break.

None of these good things are forbidden City of Darkness from the oblivion of all but dorky genre buffs. So is it good to be remembered for your memes, or barely remembered at all? City of Darkness He was not clothed with three series that turned into Philosophy 201 lectures, but Proyas retreated from Hollywood after completing the thankless work of making. Knowing Same to you Gods of Egypt. Maybe this question, like these City of Darkness status, has no answer. But the question of whether the film lasts a quarter of a century after its release is easy.
