Upon awakening with a start in an icy bathtub in a strange room-with a woman's dead body inconveniently nearby, John Murdoch can't remember how he got there. With a police detective hot on his trail and a psychiatrist skulking around, Murdoch discovers that the key to his mystery is the presence of strange extraterrestrial creatures, the Strangers, who are experimenting with the memories of the humans in his city from which there may be no escape. Ambitious sci-fi noir, with rich production design and a dense, Kafkaesque concept, made DARK CITY a cult classic. Director: Alex Proyas Star: Rufus Sewell, Terry Bader, Rosemary Traynor, Edward Grant, Maureen O'Shaughnessy, Special Features: Widescreen Audio: Dolby Digital English Additional Release Material: Additional Footage Audio Commentary Running Time: 111 minutes.

Reviews:

It wasn't long ago that director Alex Proyas was a future star; while he's had his crowd-pleasing hits (The Crow, I, Robot), this is far and away his most thought-provoking and personal film, not only accomplishing much of what The Matrix did first, but earning a rare Roger Ebert commentary track. This cult favorite stars Rufus Sewell as an amnesiac fugitive battling a pack of "Strangers" who seem to control his unnamed metropolis. In Stores July 29
