Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko ★★★★½

i can tell this movie absolutely requires of its viewers a few watches, or your fullest attention, to fully grasp its message and its intricacies, but i will say on a first watch its spectacular. no amount of cultural references to this movie heard throughout my life actually prepared me for how special it is. a star studded, exceptionally talented cast, a layered, at times mind-boggling/disturbing/heart-wrenching premise and a superbly curated soundtrack are just the highlights of donnie darko. its a fucking experience. ill rewatch soon and try to break it down further, im fascinated to better understand this one.
