Plot: A dedicated New York psychiatrist Sam Foster urgently attempts to stop a secretive and unusual young patient he inherited, Henry Lethem, from carrying out a planned suicide on the eve of his 21st birthday. But Sam's investigation of Henry has reality-shattering effects on the psychiatrist. As Sam is drawn deeper into the web of Henry's life--and then into the labyrinth of his subconscious--it puts stress on Sam's relationship with his artist girlfriend and former patient Lila. But soon Sam's own tightly-held grip on the rational world begins to melt away. Faced with increasingly surreal encounters and a Manhattan transformed into a wildly shifting dreamscape, Sam can no longer figure out what is true and what is happening only in his head, nor where he begins and Henry ends.
Cube follows a handful of diverse people who wake up inside a uniquely designed prison -- a gigantic cube with individual chambers that are constantly changing configuration, much like a rotating Rubik's Cube. It's a simple Darwinian tale of survival of the fittest as the prisoners ponder the nature and identity of their jailers and struggle to find a way out.

Someone recommended the movie "Dark City" to me long ago, as a movie about our illusory world, but I never got around to watching it, until tonight. Wow that film is very deep and complex.
Does anyone know the meaning of the film? Was the filmmaker trying to tell us something? In the movie "V for Vendetta" there is a saying that "artists use lies to tell the truth". So was this an attempt by an artist to tell us the truth about something?
