Once again, a director not afraid to go to the dark side, Alex Proyas is responsible for one of my favorite films of all time, Dark City. God, I love that movie.
Looking for more darkness to add to the knight? What about The Crow? Not familiar with it? It’s a superhero film directed by Proyas and like Nolan’s Batman films, it’s quite dark and gritty. It’s another excellent effort from the director and like Dark City, it’s a film I truly love.
