Dark City was one of the touchstones of the early DVD era.
The film was embraced by the geeks, and derided by them. Likewise, the pacing and the acting.
For all that, Dark City was a showroom demo disc, along with Blade, Matrix, Blade Runner, and dominated the charts in Video Business Retailer when it came out.
This was always an excellent example of SciFi Noir. Jorge's version is slightly darker, done with trims.
Jorge's version was outstanding on a technical level.
Video edits were clean and helped propel the pace. I did not find the narrative any more mysterious, however.
Audio modifications were noticeable. Sometimes the new scoring worked, other times not.
A bit too much accordion for my liking, though chalk that down to personal taste.
Otherwise, highly recommended.
