That man has seen things.

*wiping hands on a marinara covered wetnap*

If you had seen them.... you'd do this too.

I just rewatched the 1998 movie Dark City... it's one of those films where reality is broken, and the protagonist is one of the only people that perceives it, and so he comes off as INSANE. Bug eyed, wild hair, speaking in crazy sentence fragments.

And the film sets this up as a rational reaction to the Truth. Everybody thinks they're living in reality, but if you knew what reality really was, you wouldn't act "normal".




I'd like to think the Marinara Fairy is in the same boat.

Imagine a reality so weird that when you learn its true nature, you have to hide jars of marinara sauce in somebody's room 20 times in a row.

Dark City was the best movie of its decade.  Hands down.

No arguments from me. People called it a Matrix ripoff, completely missing the boat on what it is.

It’s the Spiders, though, so of course they’d miss it.

you gotta be pretty damn clever to rip off a movie which hadn't come out yet  :lulz: :lulz:


Random fun fact -- Dark City sold its rooftop props to the Wachowskis -- the rooftop chase scenes in both movies look really similar because they use the exact same props.

Like I said: it’s all about the Spiders. People don’t pay attention to the details.

The movie fell victim to the same forces that it was outlining, as we all will one day.
