Ashley H (fr) wrote: Seraphim Falls is a decent film. It is about a colonel who hunts down a man with whom he has a grudge at the end of the civil war. Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan give good performances. The script is okay but seems to drag a little in places. David Von Ancken did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and adventure.

Harry W (ag) wrote: Being a critically popular cult classic from Australian director Alex Proyas, Dark City sounded like an engaging thriller.From the instant the narrative takes off, viewers have no idea what's going on. Set in an unspecified universe, Dark City begins a a state of constant night with an empty dystopian darkness reminiscent of Blade Rnner (1982), as is the neo-noir nature of the story. The themes in the film seem very much influenced by Total Recall (1990), They Live (1987) and the works of H.G. Wells. There even seems to be elements that match that of The Matrix (1999) even though Alex Proyas' film precedes it by a year. The entire experience is packed full of themes, concepts and zany visuals which are thrown at the viewer one after the other with a convoluted story that strings it all together. Normally a narrative as twisted and unpredictable as Dark City would drive me crazy, but I loved it. The unpredictability of the film is amazing and it is able to hold an intense mood and fast pace the entire time while constantly finding ways to keep the mystery alive. In doing so they have to keep guessing without ever gaining wind of the infinite questions in the universe. Given that the protagonist is an amnesiac rediscovering the mysteries of the world around him, audiences find themselves going through the same experience as him where they know nothing and everything is a new kind of marvel. The mystery remains harnessed the entire time, for better and for worse. There is no denying that there is a hell of a lot to take in with Dark City and there are so many questions hurled at viewers that they will never all collect answers. Ironically one of the final lines in the film is "Now you know the truth" , when in actuality there is never any certainty in knowing if what you're experiencing is the truth. Frankly, the narrative in Dark City is one which will really polarize people because it is incredibly original yet executed in a manner like no other film before it. It's like a Terry Gilliam story with David Lynch energy and the same amount of indulgent surrealism that comes with the work of either auteur. There is even a touch of David Cronenberg in it, and the distinctive styles of these filmmakers crammed into one is both magnificent and manic, perhaps too much for many viewers to handle. It's an overwhelming experience to say the least and requires meticulous dedication to keep up with the philosophical science fiction concepts in the snappy dialogue as well as the manic energy. There is never a moment that the film slows down for people to stop and ask just what is going on, and that way it fails to get bogged down by slow melodrama. There is no breathing room in the film, and if audiences get caught up in the unstoppable rush of the tale then it can be a hell of an experience. If not, then it will just end up a confusing venture with a bunch of pretty pictures.But no matter if viewers can grasp the intellectual reach of the story, everyone should be able to admire the pulp-cyberpunk setting of the tale. Any time I lost sight of what was going on I just took the chance to enjoy the visual experience of Dark City because it is a truly unforgettable one. With such rich distinction, Alex Proyas' eye for imagery is tenacious. Capitalizing on his Blade Runner-type setting, Alex Proyas ensures that Dark City manages to stand its ground as a science fiction neo-noir of its own right with a glorious 1940's style setting to provide viewers nostalgia to the heyday of cinema noir. The production design and costumes are glorious and the use of visual effects is brilliant, finding all kinds of colour in the dark palette of the feature. Given that Alex Proyas is the director of the critically acclaimed supernatural action thriller The Crow (1994) it is no surprise that he is able to create a dark and gritty universe set in the night-time streets once again in Dark City. However, the content is all his original work and he harnesses the spirit of it with his amazing style of direction. And with snappy dialogue fuelling the dramatic pace of the feature, the cast of Dark City have nothing to do but succeed.Rufus Sewell makes for a credible lead. Bereft of the notorious star power of co-stars Kiefer Sutherland and Jennifer Connelly, Rufus Sewell has nothing to do in Dark City but act. And that's exactly what he does. Staying perfectly in tune with the unpredictability of the story, Rufus Sewell carries an edge of confusion and determination from the very beginning. He never steps out of it but rather keeps pushing his energy forward through the many twists and turns of the story while showing more grip over the potential of his character as the story progresses. Rufus Sewell's leading effort carries rich interaction with the world around him with powerful physical and emotional results.Kiefer Sutherland is the highlight of all the actors though. Having easily trasitioned from his teen idol status to legitimate adult material, Kiefer Sutherland manages to epitomize the insane mood of Dark City with every inch of dramatic strength in his bones. His line delivery carries a commanding power due to the rich fear in it and the manner in which he projects it on the other characters. Kiefer Sutherland never runs out of steam throughout Dark City but rather keeps himself actively involved with everything he encounters in his path, proving his dedication to even the most complicated narrative.Jennifer Connolly uses restrained line delivery and the hypnotic grace of her beauty to benefit Dark City, and William Hurt is always a welcome presence.Dark City will be as convoluted and twisted for some as it is striking and original for others, but audiences everywhere can appreciate Alex Proyas' ambition and stylish brilliance.
Dorian G (br) wrote: Cool. What Dune could have been, instead of the lackluster adaptation we got. Jodorowsky himself is quite the character, although his accent is mighty strong, and reading all the subtitles gets tiring, especially when he is switching between languages all the time on the fly.Still a great story, the concept art alone is worth watching for.Watched on Netflix at home, October 22, 2015.
