Not all paranoia films have to be steeped in reality, or even the present day. Forget 'The Matrix', director Alex Proyas ('I, Robot', 'Knowing') crafted the best sci-fi thriller of the 1990s and one of the most exciting additions to the genre since 'Metropolis'. Our hero is a man who wakes up with fractured memories and who is also wanted for murder in a city that is always dark.
While trying to piece together why, he uncovers that a mysterious group known as The Strangers are secretly running the city. They have the power to send everyone to sleep at the exact same moment, stop time and then gradually rearrange the city and its inhabitants. When time resumes again, they have disappeared and the citizens have no reason to think anything has changed but their lives are being altered and controlled. Find out why in this fascinating thriller.
