Dark City (1998)

Dark City Quote: “Give the man an “A” for effort.” – Inspector Frank Bumstead

Big D returns from a booze cruise just in time to tackle a 1998 sci-fi sleeper that explores the nature of individuality, the impact of memories and the allure of Jennifer Connelly’s mustache. Pack your bags for “Dark City!”

In this episode, Gene laments the movie’s opening spoiler, and Ash ties together the look and feel of pretty much every ’90s goth-industrial-hacker-vampire film while drooling over Rufus Sewell. Meanwhile, Big D takes a shot at Kiefer Sutherland, and everyone agrees “Dark City” has some badass set design.

Is there a difference between time travel and the mastery of telekinesis? Are Riff Raff and Mr. Hand the same person? Why wasn’t this movie 10 minutes long? We raise these questions and more on behalf of longtime listener and author Ryan C.

Plot Summary: “Dark City” John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he is wanted for a series of brutal murders. The problem is that he can’t remember whether he committed the murders or not. For one brief moment, he is convinced that he has gone completely mad. Murdoch seeks to unravel the twisted riddle of his identity. As he edges closer to solving the mystery, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of ominous beings collectively known as the Strangers.

    Gene, you shut your dirty mouth about Jennifer Connelly. She’s one of the most beautiful people on this planet, full beard or imperceptible natural wispy follicles. Congrats on the engagement BTW!
