Donnie Darko

Well, recommended itso did so did was less enthusiastic. Well, I got the DVD some time last year, and finally got around to watching it; and I liked it, for some of the same reasons I like Buffy – teen angst reflected in a supernatural way. Also I loved Noah Wylie and Drew Barrymore. I thought the scene of the kids cycling up to the old lady’s house might even be a reflection of the similar scene in E.T. (which was also on local TV tonight), a suspicion fuelled when I realised that Drew Barrymore was also the executive producer. And Maggie Gyllenhall playing the older sister did a lot with very little given her by the scriptwriters. So I will watch it again, and then I might even, as keeps telling me, visit the website. Great stuff.

One thought on “Donnie Darko

  1. Oh, and Lord Shutt was our candidate there multiple times, coming 2nd once. He’s now of course the Captain of the Yeoman Bodyguard and responsible for making sure there’s no gunpowder under the House when the Queen makes her speech. And speaking for the Govt on every subject under the sun in the Lords.
