Director Alex Proyas has created a sinister world of murder and mind control in Dark City, his first film since the fateful Gothic action flick, The Crow, in which star Brandon Lee died in an on-set accident. Rufus Sewell plays the tortured hero who's out to topple a posse of underworld beings who have framed him for murder by brainwashing city officials. Sewell's mindbending trip through Proyas' stylishly grim urban landscape is exhilarating, but muddled plot twists ultimately leave the viewer in the dark.
