Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko ★★★★★

If you don't like this movie, we can't be friends.

Seriously, this film is flawless. It's just brimming with life and heart and intelligence and terror. Every character is a fully conceived, real person. The use of music is better than almost any movie I can think of. The nightmare scenes are terrifying, the relationship between Donnie and Gretchen is beautiful, Frank is...

I can't think of what to write here because it's so obvious that this movie is amazing. It's all on the screen.

But that tracking shot through the high school set to "Head Over Heels" by Tears for Fears? I'm pretty sure that's what heaven looks like.
