    ok, first of all i want to apologize for making ANOTHER thread about this, but know that i have gone back and read the other Donnie Darko threads and they have been extremely useful. but there are still things that i want clarity on...or just some insight if you will...

    i just saw the movie for the first time about a week ago and watched it again just last night.

    it's an AWESOME movie, and i haven't been able to get it out of my head. there are so many things that baffle me about it though.

    like has anyone noticed that this movie creates somewhat of a parallel with religion? like debating predestination and also freedom of choice?

    this really stands out when Donnie is talking with his science teacher. i decided that the science teacher reflects rationalism, while Donnie represtents confusion over something greater- maybe purpose or even God.


    anyone else have insights or something to add?

    :bowdown: :bowdown:

    I just bought and watched it, and all I have to say is holy shit, will probably be my favorite movie by far for a very, very long time.

    you saw the director's cut? or the normal one? I thought that the director's cut comes out at the seattle film festival on the 29th and has 20 minutes of additional footage, as well as revised special effects.
