APHUG: Donnie Darko
I chose Donnie Darko for this project because it is 1) one of my favorite movies and 2) because of the overall theme it supplies. I re-watched it after you gave us this assignment, and it took me back to when I first saw it. It took me three complete watches to fully understand the message it was trying to convey; at first it just seems like a weirdly shot film with horrible animations and a freaky looking bunny, yet it's much more that that. It's a story about time travel, one that includes a teenage boy trying to find his true self in this mad world and a (surprisingly) not cheesy love background mixed in. It doesn't seem like the best candidate for this assignment, but I tried my best to show how amazing it really is. I hope I did it justice.
