doppelgangerdev’s review published on Letterboxd:
The DC is a bit better. Just flows smoother to me. It took me years and divorcing the film from a time in my life to actually appreciate it. Donnie Darko's cult ascent was around the same time goth died and emo was beginning. This was THE movie for that crowd. Seeing it now its a fun watch. Ideas and vibes Kelly improved on with The Box in my opinion. A clever humor he explored more in Southland Tales. A solid debut thats certainly not lazy even if its head is all over the place.
