Darko, Donnie Darko...

Wow... very few films impact me in a way that makes me want to abandon everything I'm doing to sit down and write. This is one of them. In the same vein as American Beauty and Twelve Monkeys, this is just an amazing piece of cinema. I like dark, I think. I want to create dark. Something that makes people uncomfortable. Something that makes people think. Something that doesn't hand everything to the viewer on a paper plate, pre-cut, pre-chewed and practically pre-digested. I want to inspire discussions that last for hours. I want people to be sitting in the theater thinking "I *WILL* own this on DVD and watch it repeatedly" before the movie is half over. I want. I want. I want.
