Dark City is a one-of-a-kind science fiction film, and it reminds me more of Metropolis than 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The story is complex but develops itself as a drawn tight yet frequently entertaining thriller. It is thought provoking, which is a lesser thing you'll find in films today..
Alex Proyas is much less consistent and in a movie like Dark City where they need to assemble far more elements to deliver a provocative story, or "film experience" than in say, The Crow, it's clear to see that James Cameron's movies just deliver that narrative flow so much better.
