Dark City – Smrtihlav (1998) Z drvivej väčšiny tmavý ponurý film, ktorý sa snaží ťažiť z odkazu noir, ale nielen z neho. Dark City je experimentom mimozemskej rasy, ktorá je na pokraji vyhynutia. Snaží sa porozumieť a splynúť s ľuďmi, ale chýba jej základný kľúč – rozlúštenie individuality jednotlivcov a ich duší. Noc čo noc sú ľuďom rozoberané spomienky a minulosť aby boli nanovo poskladané a mohli sa podrobiť ďalšiemu a ďalšiemu výskumu. Neúmyselne sa pokusom vzprieči John Murdoch, ktorý po množstve rozobratí a poskladaní svojho mozgu nevysvetliteľne získa možnosti mimozemskej rasy – rozoberať a skladať. Spočiatku je brzdený obvinením zo škaredých vrážd šiestich prostitútok. Snaží sa dostať z mesta, ale zisťuje, že je to nemožné. Nikto si nepamätá cestu, vlak, ktorý na koniec miesta mieri, nikde nezastavuje. Temným svetom sprevádza postava psychiatra Schrebera, ktorý je vďaka svojmu povolaniu s mimozemskou rasou zadobre. Mesto je uvrhnuté do akéhosi bezčasu. I keď je možné vystriehnuť atmosféru amerického veľkomesta medzivojnovvých rokov. Aj keď film balansuje na ski-fi pomedzí, nešermuje šialenými okulahodiacimi trikmi, radšej sa venuje výstavbe zahustenej detektívnej atmosféry. [original text] (Directed by: Alex Proyas.

Enemy at the Gates (2001) 17. júla 1942 sa začala jedna z najväčších bitiek II. svetovej vojny. Bojovalo sa o priemyselné mesto na Volge, vtedajší Stalingrad a velenie oboch armád – sovietskej i nemeckej – si bolo vedomé, že práve tu sa rozhodne o konečnom víťazstve. Príbeh, inšpirovaný rovnomennou knihou amerického historika Williama Craiga, opisuje v dramatickom rámci krvavého vojnového stretu súboj ruského ostreľovača Vasilija Zajceva s nemeckým rozviedčíkom majorom Konigom. Ten dostal za úlohu zlikvidovať vojaka z Uralu, ktorý má pre sovietsku vojnovú propagandu nesmiernu cenu. Jeho nadriadený Danilov z neho doslova “stvoril” žiarivý prototyp skromného, prostého a pritom neohrozeného hrdinu, schopného bez zaváhania položiť za vlasť život. Netuší, že si tým tiež postavil do cesty soka v láske. Nemecká strana verí a dúfa, že smrť Vasilija by aspoň na čas ochromila bojaschopnosť červenoarmejcov pri Stalingrade … (Directed by: Jean-Jacques Annaud.
