3SMR: Donnie Darko

 In Everything, Skip, Suspense
3SMR: Donnie Darko

I remain firm in my conviction that the movie I watch should tell the whole story while I am watching it; Donnie Darko does not, and so it fails as a movie. Jake Gyllenhaal is very good as Donnie, and the movie achieves a satisfactory creepy and confusing vibe. But when the movie ends and the speech bubble over my head is filled only with “????” this is a movie that has failed.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home, as part of preperation for Filmspotting’s Best of the 2000s.
