"Donnie Darko"

The cinematic version of "Donnie Darko" is happy to leave the viewer wondering "What the hell is going on?" until the very end, and it works well.

The Director's cut, on the other hand, is like being repeatedly poked in the chest and told "HEY THICKIE! THIS IS WHAT'S HAPPENING!".

The sequence with the automated sentry guns kicked arse, but that was about 2 minutes out of a pretty flatulent 20 minutes added. It punctured the pace of the original version.

Donnie Darko sucked. Siesta was better. And did it first.

was it the director's cut of blade runner that more strongly implies deckard is a replicant? if so i nominate that.

I haven't seen it.
Did someone stick a sheet of paper to Deckard's back saying "kik me, im a riplicunt" or something?
