Dark City (1998)

It’s hard to imagine any alternate dystopian reality prior to “The Matrix” but Roger Ebert considered this the best film of the year it was released. Though thoroughly entertaining, the aforementioned blockbuster borrowed heavily from this movie, specifically several pieces of the set. What it lacks in state-of-the-art visual effects it more than makes up for with mysterious twists and turns without losing any of the philosophical/ intellectual references for which its counterpart is so famous.
