Better Matrix than the Matrix

by Book Napakin on Jul 5, 2008

If you stripped the Matrix of its sexy video game appeal, hipster takes on its source material, added a plot, a far more interesting visual style, a meaningful sense of drama instead of pointless choreography, etc. you'd get Dark City. It's a much more thoughtful concept of the Matrix for people over 13. I suspect in 20 years, it'll still hold up really well. It perhaps won't be as seminal of an event as say Blade Runner, but it'll still be one of those old movies you can recommend to others as a solid, well-rounded take on "your whole world is a lie" type of fantasies (and it'll still look gorgeous too.)
