    Donnie Darko

    ★★★★

    Me right as the credits roll: What the hell? That ending explained nothing! What’s with the old lady? What happened to the rabbit guy? Why does everyone have a weird goo tentacle coming out of their chest? That was some pretentious bullshit!

    Cowboy Bebop

    ★★★★½

    While some claim the best characters are those that go through dramatic change throughout the course of the story, I think there’s something to be said about characters who do the exact opposite; characters who find themselves in a very static state, refusing to change, not because of incompotent writing, but instead because of their deep-seeded regrets and denial. Characters like this are fascinating to watch, as we see the ways they delude themselves and avoid the very real problems…
