Hit or Miss

Donnie Darko

Last night Jeff and I officially became the last people to finally watch Donnie Darko. At the time of its release, I remember avoiding reading what anyone had written about it so as not to spoil the movie for myself. But after going back through a bunch of blogger’s archives, I realize they were as confused as I was by the film.

Not the last…I have yet to see this one.

Confused, yet engaged, enough to go out and buy the DVD, then watch both sets of commentary — which occasionally bring to light some of the less obvious aspects of the movie – like the fact that Frank’s car passes Donnie on his bikeride down from the hilltop in the very first scenes.

The day after Matt and I watched it, I actually bought the DVD, because I knew I’d want to watch it several more times. (Besides, it was only $9.99 at Best Buy.)

I have had Donnie from Netflix now for a month and haven’t watched it. I think I shall return it and just give up on being cool.
