I found this community searching under Death Cab for Cutie, weird.
I watched Donnie Darko in my film class last week and I feel in love with it. I rented it and watched it several more times. If any of you have any insights I'm Having some troubles with a few things
Cherita (especially the dance she does in the talent show)
The basic debate about the end that is going around my class is time travel vs. a parallel universe collapsing.
Anything you have to say is appriciated. It's not only a fabulous movie but I want a good grade.
Has anyone seen this?

"I almost forgot, the monday before last me and Izzy went to the movies. The GFT do a twice monthly screening for parents of babies so the other people there will be 'sensitive to your needs'. Anyway it was a Hungarian film called Kontroll about a bunch of ticket inspectors on the underground. At first it was quite funny with an unlikely group of ticket inpectors (almost reminicent of the Usual Suspects lineup) as they get in fights (obviously ticket inspectors are not exactly the most popular of people), go 'railing' and encounter the other freaks who travel the underground (such as tourists, pimps, a girl in a bear costume, Bootsie; a cool guy who seems to live for running from the inspectors and spraying them with shaving foam, and a scary guy who pushes unsuspecting travellers onto the tracks in front of trains) but it takes an unsettling turn into dark fantasy. I'd reccommend it to people into the likes of Donnie Darko and David Lynch movies."
Hey. I'm Iffer. You can im me if you so please because I get bored (my aim is ifferisaguy).
I love Donnie Darko. I've seen it 3 times so far. I own it, so I'll see it a million more times, knowing me. Donnie Darko really makes me think about life, which I think is great. I've noticed, after showing the movie to my friends, that you either get it or you don't. You either love it or you hate it. One of my friends just didn't get it, and hated it. An other got it, and she said it made her think too much. My friend's little sister didn't really get it, and I had to explain it to her. I got the movie, and I think its great. I didn't get all the concepts the first time I saw the movie. The part where Donnie was talking to his teacher about time travel went in one ear and out the other for me. I talked about the movie a lot with my sister, which helped me understand it so much more. The second time I saw the movie, I just got it. Everything made sense. It just clicked, and it was amazing. I loved it so much. It bothered me so much when my friend was joking around about it. I could explain it to anyone who asked, as my friends little sister did. I got the movie for my birthday which was recent, and I expect that everytime to the milionth time I see it, I'll notice something new, because thats how its been for me.
I know it seems crazy that a movie means this much to me, but it does. Sorry if you think I'm wierd or a little to passionate about this movie.
Donnie Darko: Directors Cut is in Jacksonville now. I am soooooo happy. I am going to see it this weekend. Cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey I'm new. Donnie Darko is one of the movies that I live my life by. My name is Romina (nicknames: Romy or Romes). Read some of my LJ posts. If you find me interesting add me.
Hello. I'm Brittani, and obviously new. This community seems awsome. Since Donnie Darko is incredibly awsome. Nice to meet you all ^_^.
Hello, I'm new. I found this community while randomly searching for Andre 3000 intrests because he is rad but obviously I'm a fan of Donnie Darko too and this community seems really cool.
What does everybody think of the character of Frank in the film? My take is that the bunny-suited Frank is a symbol of Donnie's future/ destiny (because when he comes in contact with Frank, Donnie's world basicly ends) but the real life Frank is just some random guy who has no actual connection to Donnie at all, until he meets him at the end of course. I thought this was quite straightfarward but one of my ex-boyfriends was obsessed with the fact that Frank is Donnie's sister's boyfriend. I didn't really see any evidence of this in the film, although obviously she knows him to certian extent since she asks where he is at the halloween party, but even if he is, what would that matter in the plotline of the movie? I don't think I've missed something, or have I?
