I just watched this film recently

I find it interesting, but am not entirely sure what I think of it

I admit that I don't completely get it (a state which is assisted since I left to use the restroom a couple of times during it)

so what is really going on?

I know (and I think understand) some of the time travel stuff

but not everything

It's a fun movie to watch, but I wouldn't want to be in it.

totally overhyped, overblown. Siesta was better and done several years before. Darko was way cliched. Drew barrymore...puleesze/ Child molester evangilst...puleese

Better than Donny Brasco?

but he wasn't quite a normal evangelist

I am not entirely sure what I think of the whole thing, but I haven't seen Siesta

(BTW, I hadn't heard of it so didn't kow of any over hyping or blowing, unless it was inherent to the film)

Pretty good cult has grown out of it...Google it.

Good film, most obscure angle-of-approach to the whole time-warp concept ever... on a level with 12Monkeys for shere Ahhhness at the end.

or sheer ahhwhatthefuckness in my case

it's not like the end resolves anything, it still leaves about 6 zillion unanswered questions

yup- accurately reflecting our lack of understanding regarding the nature of time. or something.

middlebrow mod mysteriousness. blows. music at end. hate it.

great film. don't look at it in any realistic or over-analytical way. It's just a fun film to think about. And I couldn't help but think the girl was cute, and I thought it was sweet he did that for her. I'm such a sucker for those things in movies.

I liked Primer, too, which owes a fair bit to Donnie Darko.
