And we turned to the Snowman Gods and said, “Not Today!” After Jon tried to lose his file at the final moments of the episode, we were able to reclaim it from the depths of an alternate dimension and reassemble it into an episode! The film is the 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko. Directed by Richard Kelly and picked by Ben, we try and come to grips with this movie 20 years later, and I think we all agree we might not be quite as high on it as we were in our younger years. Still, plenty to discuss, Kelly is obviously talented, and it is a shame he hasn’t made anything in a decade; no matter his post Darko track record.
