Sci-Fi and Film Noir is an interesting mix of genres. Terminator did it best, A Dark Matter has done it well too. It's just that the later is a slower ride revolving around darker characters rather than running from a futuristic machine. This is not a simple narrative, that sometimes reaches out to the likes of David Lynch. More recent David Cronenberg comes to mind too. Yet, here in may lie a little problem with A Dark Matter, whereas Lynch and Cronenberg movies massage our entertainment factor with nudity so they can tell their strange stories, A Dark Matter only teases us and still expects us to concentrate on the complex plot. Why don't we see Eve in the buff? This would at least bring some credibility to her somewhat stiff acting. How about the protagonist's girlfriend Laura? (Actually there is one scene where we get a glimpse, but not what we really want). This seems justified considering the amount of sex that moves the plot forward. Perhaps this is from a male's point of view, but I'm probably just saying what's on others' minds.
