This is the best review of any movie I have ever read. I wish I could put into words how I feel about a movie I like or don't like the way you did! Donnie Darko is one of my very favorite movies, thanks for describing my thoughts on it perfectly.

I'm with Claire! Fantastic review, touching on many tip-of-the-tongue elements I can't seem to voice myself. I'm one of many, I'm sure, who wish they could find a wormhole to jump through back to the eighties and have a do-over that would leave the world touched...and untouched. Donnie is the embodiment of my teen love who haunted ME like a giant nightmare rabbit, culminating in a two year doomed romance, post-divorce, post-tragedy. Playing the movie continuously while I work, checking in occasionally (like the mom I am, when have I EVER in the last fourteen years ever get to see a movie through completion) for new clues and old favorites...keeps me in a place of comfort and some grace.

Wonderful review! Keep doing what you do!
