Edit Cast Complete credited cast: Charlton Heston Danny Haley Lizabeth Scott Fran Garland Viveca Lindfors Victoria Winant Dean Jagger Garvey Don DeFore Arthur Winant Jack Webb Augie Ed Begley Danny asks Fran to send the money he won to Victoria the next morning if anything happens to him.

Believing that Danny is in love with Victoria, Fran decides to leave for Chicago. After driving around for a while and feeling that he was being followed, Danny goes back to his motel room.

He sits there prepared with a gun in his hand, waiting for Sidney's attack. Sidney comes out from the bathroom and catches Danny by surprise and after a struggle starts to choke Danny.

But Captain Garvey and his men, who were following Danny all along, burst into the room and shoot Sidney.

The next morning at the airport Fran is walking towards her plane to Chicago. At the last moment, Danny comes running to the plane and tells Fran that he loves her.

They kiss and turn around to walk back together into the airport. The working title of this film was No Escape. The production dates were from April 5 to May 12, Additional scenes and retakes were from May 9 to May 11, When the film was released, film critic for The New York Times , Bosley Crowther , applauded the work of newcomer Charlton Heston but panned the film, writing:.

A new star named Charlton Heston — a tall, tweedy, rough-hewn sort of chap who looks like a triple-threat halfback on a midwestern college football team—is given an unfortunate send-off on the low and lurid level of crime in Hal Wallis' thriller, Dark City , which came to the Paramount yesterday.

Apparently Mr. Heston, who has worked for the stage and video, has something more than appearance to recommend him to dramatic roles.

He has a quiet but assertive magnetism, a youthful dignity and a plainly potential sense of timing that is the good actor's sine qua non. But in this 'clutching hand' chiller, he is called upon to play nothing more complex or demanding than a crooked gambler marked for doom.

Veteran director William Dieterle The Devil and Daniel Webster has been dealt a bad hand by the weak script, but the talented cast play out the hand as best they could Heston's finely tuned nuanced performance, as a guy gone bad but who can be saved by love, gives the melodrama enough film noir qualities to get over but not enough to relieve it of its tedium.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Dark City Theatrical release poster. Release date. The movie takes place everywhere, and it takes place nowhere.

It's a city built of pieces of cities. A corner from one place, another from some place else. So, you don't really know where you are. A piece will look like a street in London, but a portion of the architecture looks like New York, but the bottom of the architecture looks again like a European city.

You're there, but you don't know where you are. It's like every time you travel, you'll be lost. The production design included themes of darkness, spirals, and clocks.

There appears to be no sun in the city's world, and spiral designs that shrink when approached were used in the film.

A major clock in the film shows no hours; Tatopoulos said, "But in a magical moment it becomes something more than just a clock.

The Strangers are energy beings who reside in dead human bodies. When design first started, the filmmakers considered having the Strangers be bugs underneath but decided that the bug appearance was overused.

Tatopoulos said Proyas wanted to make the Strangers energy beings, "Alex called me and said he wanted something like an energy that kept re-powering itself, re-creating itself, re-shaping itself, sitting inside a dry piece of human shape.

The lair set was built on a fairground in Sydney, Australia. The lair also had a rail conveyance that appeared expensive.

Tatopoulos said, "We had, obviously, a car built, but we had just one built. We laid some rail for it to ride on. We made a section of corridor that we kept driving through all the time, and you end up believing this thing is running along forever.

The music for the film was edited by Simon Leadley and Jim Harrison. The film's style is often compared to that of the works of Terry Gilliam especially Brazil.

The Matrix was released one year after Dark City and was also filmed at Fox Studios in Sydney using some of the same sets.

Fritz Lang 's movie Metropolis was a major influence on the film, showing through the architecture, concepts of the baseness of humans within a metropolis, and general tone.

One of the last scenes of the movie, in which buildings "restore" themselves, is similar to the last panel of the Akira manga. Proyas called the end battle a "homage to Otomo 's Akira ".

When Christopher Nolan first started thinking about writing the script for Inception , he was influenced by "that era of movies where you had The Matrix , you had Dark City , you had The Thirteenth Floor and, to a certain extent, you had Memento , too.

They were based in the principles that the world around you might not be real". New Line Cinema wanted the filmmakers to consider the alternate titles due to the release of similarly titled Mad City in the same time frame, but Dark City was ultimately kept as the final title.

Among mainstream critics in the U. Roger Ebert writing in the Chicago Sun-Times called it a "great visionary achievement," while also exclaiming that it was "a film so original and exciting, it stirred my imagination like Metropolis and A Space Odyssey.

But on a positive front, he wrote, "what counts here is the show, the creation of a strange world by a filmmaker who clearly knows science fiction and fantasy, past and present, and wants to share his love for it.

This guy wears bad luck like the grimy trenchcoats of his protagonists, only his zipper's stuck and he can't seem to shake the damn thing off.

Commenting on the directing, he thought "If you had to guess, you might say that Proyas came out of the world of comic art himself, rather than music videos and advertising.

Dark City is constructed like panels in a Batman book, each picture striving for maximum dread. And this doesn't work out quite so well.

Writing for Time , Richard Corliss said the film was "as cool and distant as the planet the Strangers come from.

But, Lord, is Dark City a wonder to see. Goyer is unintentionally funny at times and often just plain dumb.

Andrea Basora of Newsweek , stated that director Proyas flooded the screen with "cinematic and literary references ranging from Murnau and Lang to Kafka and Orwell, creating a unique yet utterly convincing world".

Steve Biodrowski of Cinefantastique found the production design and the cinematography overwhelming, but he considered the narrative engagement of Sewell's amnesiac character to be ultimately successful.

Biodrowski writes, "As the story progresses, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, and we gradually realize that the film is not a murky muddle of visuals propping up a weak story.

All the questions lead to answers, and the answers make sense within the fantasy framework. As a technical achievement, it is superb, and that technique is put in the service of telling a story that would be difficult to realize any other way.

The film won and was nominated for several awards in Film critic Roger Ebert cited it as the best film of Dark City premiered in cinemas on 27 February in wide release on 1, screens in the U.

The film was released in VHS video format on 2 March The DVD also includes biographies, filmographies, comparisons to Fritz Lang's Metropolis , set designs, and the theatrical trailer.

The director's cut removes the opening narration, which Proyas felt explained too much of the plot, and restores it to its original location in the film.

It also includes 15 minutes of additional footage, mostly consisting of extended scenes with additional establishing shots and dialogue.

The Blu-ray Disc additionally includes the original theatrical cut and the special features from the DVD release. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Yes No Report this. Add the first question. Proyas referenced film noir of the s and the s such as The Maltese Falcon as an influence for the film.

Proyas co-wrote the screenplay with Lem Dobbs and David S. Writers Guild of America initially protested at crediting more than two screenwriters for a film, but it eventually relented and credited all three writers.

Proyas envisioned a robust narrative where the audience could examine the film from the perspective of multiple characters and focus on the plot.

When Proyas finished his preceding film The Crow in , he approached production designer Patrick Tatopoulos to draw concepts for the world in which Dark City takes place.

The movie takes place everywhere, and it takes place nowhere. It's a city built of pieces of cities. A corner from one place, another from some place else.

So, you don't really know where you are. A piece will look like a street in London, but a portion of the architecture looks like New York, but the bottom of the architecture looks again like a European city.

You're there, but you don't know where you are. It's like every time you travel, you'll be lost. The production design included themes of darkness, spirals, and clocks.
