    Mail Order Murder: The Story Of W.A.V.E. Productions


    Looking but only occasionally playing like an extended DVD extra, this instead trucks along at a pace on par with the De Palma doc from a few years back. Infectious, great fun if you like your documentaries lived-in and deep-diving.

    Donnie Darko


    Still a mystery to me after all these years. What makes it a mystery worth solving, or at least trying to solve, is that the graspable parts are so pleasurable. The comedy is great. The angst is palpable and relatable. I rack up more moving moments with every viewing. (“How does it feel to have a wacko for a son?” “It feels wonderful.” took me aback this time.) I bet my love for the movie will continue to wax and wane, but it’ll always be there.
