Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko ★★★★★

A mini masterpiece.

One of the most beautiful films ever made.

If I ever have advice for anyone, it would be to never watch the Directors Cut. Half of Donnie Darko's brilliance is its weirdness and ambiguity. It should never need to be fully explained.

The other half of Donnie Darko's brilliance is that frankly unbelievable performance from Jake Gyllenhaal.

To this day, it is still one of the best films I have ever seen in the cinema. It made 2001 a great year. Despite being unemployed..
