Then I see a movie like Donnie Darko. HOLY SHIT! How could I have missed this movie? Why am I so lame? This is now one of my favorite flicks. It has humor, a good story, and is remarkably touching. All without spoonfeeding the audience. It is set in the 80s, so its kinda like if John Hughes directed American Beauty, but it had more of a gothic/scifi edge to it.
I have to give it up to the Suicide Girls message boards, as the people there turned me on to this flick. And on top of it all, Drew Barrymore is in it!
Thanks goodness for DVD.
