I didn't know what to think when I came into watching this film. I certainly wasn't expecting what I got. I like how they focused on the characters and really fleshed them out. It was a very real story but maybe it should have been more focused. It was both a coming of age romance story and a post-apocalyptic survival drama. It felt like it was trying to do too much. Either way, it was still enjoyable.
Cruise doing his usual role of bad-ass. Enjoyable.

There are simply too many aspects of this movie that make me think of its brilliance. It is a visually thrilling film, the music is great and "way up there", the dance numbers are glamorous and the story is brilliant and heartbreaking. It is an understatement to say that the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
Incredible movie, completely underrated. Donnie Darko is the most unlikely hero of the small town of Middlesex in this amazing, original film. It may require more than one viewing to understand it. I highly recommend watching the director's cut.
