05:12 pm: Donnie Darko, Director's Cut
Netflix lists the genre of this movie as "Independent," but it's clearly SF, and pretty good SF, at that. Donnie Darko, a teenager in Virginia (shot entirely in California), appears to be delusional and when he reads an unusual book about time travel, strange things start to happen. There's a lot of ideas you have to grab yourself in this movie, unless you're part of the cult that watches it over and over again.

I also watched the beginning of each item on the Bonus Disc and it made me lose the sensawonda from the movie, so I'm going to put the movie back on the bottom of my queue and watch it again. I enjoyed it very much.

I liked the way he used music in the movie -- not just as background, but bringing it up to be part of the plot.

You know, if you follow the time travel book, they awoke from manipulating Donnie.
