"Donnie Darko"... one strange movie...
Right in the middle of watching "Donnie Darko". *shivers* Whoa. This is... disturbing. He just found the gun in the closet. And that *smile* he gets sometimes. And the increasingly terrifying look of Frank. *shivers* Is this just a textbook case of paranoid schizophrenia, or... is it real?


Strange. You know why I'm watching this? Because of the song "Mad World" that they've been playing on the radio, which is from the movie... even though it came out some time ago.

Added later...

More creepy stuff.

Time travel. Strange things coming out of people's chests.

The fat guy in the red jumpsuit.

Patrick Swayze as a motivational speaker. *groans*

Cellar Door. They mentioned Cellar Door!!! A Tolkien reference. *S*

Drew Barrymore as a teacher, with integrity and desire and her own disappointments.

The overweight Chinese girl with the deep feelings.

Strange sessions with the psychiatrist.

Halloween party. Bit - is it really the end of the world?

This... is one. strange. movie.

It's over... here's the song. But... what does it all mean?

"the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had..."

I'd say more but... I can't without giving it away.

Although, I can't end my comments without saying... did he act out of fear... or love?


Wait - Drew Barrymore was the executive producer? *admiration for drew goes up by leaps and bounds*

Whoa... I knew it was Jake Gyllenhall... but I didn't know his sister Maggie was in this. He must have been quite young at the time. He kept reminding me of Tobey McGuire in his expressions.

*toddles off to imdb, the source of all knowledge, to find out more about the movie and how it came to be*
