Monsters that dress themselves as humans (Dark City)

If you were to tell me that this movie specifically isn't what made Ridley Scott adopt Dariusz Wolski as his go-to DP, I'd call you a liar.

What movie is that? Dark City?

Definitely feels like it's drawing from the same well of influences that the Wachowskis were drawing on for The Matrix (pretty explicitly so, at times), and you can see a bunch of imagery (like what Jonesy posted above) evoking similar sensibilities as what Scott would also later on go for in his prequels. Cool little movie, visually, and oozing with style and atmosphere. I should revisit it again, it's been a few years.
