The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Jan 18, 2022

It's time to re-discover a hidden gem from the late 1990s, Dark City! A movie that was long dwarfed by The Matrix in a lot of the themes explored by both movies, does Dark City hold up today? We find out and we bring on our great friend, Brett Bowen, to help us dive into this one. Before we talk about the film, however, we rank our Top 5 Noir Films of all time as well! Which ones make our list? Find out! So, grab your strange syringes, grab your trench coats, and head out to find Shell Beach... it's time for Dark City!
