Overheard at Booth 1: Donnie Darko (2001)

I must be the only person in the world who doesn't get this movie.
This movie is a lot like Radiohead to me: something that I apparently am supposed to be in awe of its genius, but which for some reason left me cold.

And usually I like strange movies.
Usually I like movies with odd characters, dry dialogue, and plots that wrap around themselves.

But something about this movie just seems forced, rigid, and overall, insipid.

So, more than likely, if you've seen it, you've liked it, but if you haven't seen it, well, don't let this negative review stop you.

Just don't say I didn't warn you.
