Saltwater screens ‘Dark City’
Thomaston — The Saltwater Film Society will present “Dark City” as its next Movie Night feature Thursday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m. at Thomaston Public Library, in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. This is a free event.
“Dark City'' by Alex Proyas, director of “Knowing,” “I Robot” and “The Crow,” is an original and exciting tribute to film noir. It is not a story so much as an experience. John Murdoch awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he has lost his memory and is wanted for a series of brutal and bizarre murders. While trying to piece together his past, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of beings known as The Strangers who possess the ability to put people to sleep and alter the city and its inhabitants. He must find a way to stop them before they take control of his mind and destroy him.
A blend of “Blade Runner” and “The Fifth Element,” “Dark City” features Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connelly and Rufus Sewell. It is rated R.
