Roman Arbisi’s review published on Letterboxd:
Movie No. 2 of "Your Favorite Movies" in the Movie Talk by Movie Fans - Collider Council Facebook group.
THIS GUY DIRECTED DONNIE DARKO. One of my favorite films ever! One of the best films I think has been made in this century. Who swapped this guy's brain out with a melted, squashed, stepped on, obliterated, burnt marshmallow?
Honestly...I have no idea what I just watched. I literally couldn't tell you, I literally can't, I can't, I simply cannot, it's impossible, I literally couldn't tell you, I could try, and I really could try, but I literally could not tell you.
Dearest member Rasika, who requested I watch this film, how dare you. How dare you plaster my looking holes with this...this...this thingy thing with things and lots of TVs and lots of screens and...that opening sequence? I don't. I can't. Holy shit...
Is this satire? Is this a comedy? Is it a play on the genre? What is it? Is it pretentious? Is it ambitious?
This movie wouldn't even make it into Ripley's Believe it or Not. No one should believe that this is an actual....thing.
