  • Movies with an emphasis on shadow?

    Yeah, well... I just saw that movie called "The Name of The Rose", which would have been one of the inspirations for the thief devs. This movie features a lot of shadowy figures, fog, and dark rooms, and gothic architecture. Heck, it's even inspiring the wannabee-writer/mapper I am. So, I want to know, are there other movies featuring such things?

          well... sort of semi-related... did anyone else notice that "reign of fire" could have easily been in B&W and not lost anything except for the fire?

                Although I do not know about the gothic stylings, for dark, shadowy, visuals (story too for that matter) in a more urban enviroment, look under "film noir"
                Give some taffer fire, and you'll keep him warm for the night with one less reason to cause trouble for the master.
                Set a taffer on fire, and he will be warm for the rest of his life, and have no need to bother the master.

                  There's a series running down here called "Doctor Bell and Mister Doyle"... or as they put it: "The adventures of the Real Sherlock Holmes".

                  The London night is absolutely beautiful.

                  I think its BBC production, but can't remember for sure.
                  Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

                    Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hide qualifies itself, too.

                        We're talking about movies that fit with the dark thief/thievery setting.
