If movie-time for you means a complete vacation from reality for 2-hours, Dark City could be worthy. Of course you also have to be down with a dark, comic-book style hero playing the lead. If you saw the movie Crow or I, Robot, you know that visionary-weirdo director Alex Proyas will take you places you’ve never even dreamed of.
The Crow-"People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right. "
Which movies were ahead of their time? 'Dark City' is a visually stunning and magnificent sci-fi noir that hit theaters a year before 'The Matrix' raked in $463 million at the worldwide box office. Earning critical raves but going totally unseen by the general public ($14.4 million domestically during its theatrical release)
