Dark City: A Good One

A guy tries to remember stuff in this sci-fi noir film. Dark City is art directed within an inch of its life, it's breathlessly edited and someone definitely forgot to turn on the lights. There are fedoras and overcoats and bald floating aliens with knives dressed in bondage gear. Who doesn't love that? There's a nice tension throughout and it's very stylish. The score is very effective. I enjoyed the use of the circle as a recurring motif. Apparently there's a Director's Cut. I would watch that. I watched Dark City on DVD because there's nothing on Netflix. Here's a trailer:
