What remains unchanged is the realization of just what a superb actor Jake Gyllenhaal is.
It's a dreamlike, intuitive movie that has much to say about life and death and points in between.
The new Darko is just as marvelous as the old.
Contains about 10 additional minutes and is as fabulous and enjoyable as ever.
If Kelly felt it necessary to add the new material, that's all to the good. It just means there's more to love.
Alive, original and intriguing.
Oddly not as good as the theatrical cut.
The resulting film reveals an artist who has seriously reflected on his work and carefully considered what to add, what to alter and sometimes what to remove.
...other additions -- most egregiously at the climax -- are just intrusive and reduce our interpretive choices by replacing them with one choice, purely science-fictional in a George Lucas 'midichlorians' sense, that's a diminishment, not an illumination.
Friends and neighbors, this is a Great American Movie.
it cannot be discounted that the substantial supplementary features went a long way towards backing up the film's legitimacy to its ever-increasing population of followers.
Like Being John Malkovich and 2001: A Space Odyssey and too few others, this is one of those mind-melting cinematic achievements.
Richard Kelly revisits his cult thriller Donnie Darko with a Director's Cut that tries to offer a clearer vision. Inserting excerpts from "The Philosophy of Time Travel," the story gains a more structured format; as sections of the narrative are categorized by the element of tangent universe time travel that are being focused on. There are also hints of an observer that is overseeing this correction of the tangent universe. But these observer scenes feel out of place and clash stylistically with the tone and look of the rest of the film. Another unfortunate change in this cut is the soundtrack, which is less evocative and organic. Also, the addition of more dialog and voice-over scenes for the Frank character causes him to lose some of his mystique. But for the most part, the performances and storytelling are especially strong and compelling. Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut succeeds at clearing up some of the ambiguity and mystery of the theatrical version, yet in doing so part of the film's allure is lost.
Quite a revelation. A must-see.
I love the directors cut even more then the theatrical version. this movie is funny, wierd, orginal and much more. this is one of the best films ever made. A
