Donnie Darko (2001)

Mr. Mendo is back to take on yet another overrated indie film: Donnie Darko, the needlessly obtuse story of a schizophrenic boy, the 6-foot rabbit that visits him in the night, and the jet engine that falls on him. Also, there’s some stuff in here about time travel and the end of the world. And Patrick Swayze is a child molesting motivational speaker. This synopsis makes more sense than the movie.

“Director Doug Liman channels Harold Ramis, albeit taking things in a very different direction (less Andie MacDowell, more Alien MindControl).”The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
“In the movie’s defense, it tries to dial down the pedo vibe, but it’s a bit futile when the source material is this inherently creepy.”The top 10 films of 2014
“2014 was a great year for movies. So much so that making my top ten list this year was torturous (well, more torturous than usual).”Looper (2012)
“In some ways, it’s like the Goodfellas of time travel films—a compelling drama and character study of people we would never want to cross paths with in real life. ”Bonekickers
“The show had, shall we say, a less than stellar relationship with the world history it was attempting to depict. Though, that may have had less to do with the writers and more to do with having to somehow squeeze so much historical skullduggery into the backstory of Bath, a former Roman settlement in Somerset located just off the highway between the exits for Fuck and All.”North Korea owns Hollywood, apparently
“We can’t send the message that we can be threatened into submission, or that anyone, much less Kim Jong-un, has immunity from satire. ”
