The Electric Commentary

It's almost Halloween...

and Jim Emerson writes an interesting (and very strange) review of Donnie Darko, a favorite of mine:

The picture begins with Donnie waking up, barefoot and in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms, on a hillside road overlooking a valley at dawn. At first he looks bewildered, then he stands up and breaks into a grin shaking off the thought of ... something: an strange idea? a memory? He then picks up his bike and rides downhill to his suburban home (to the song "The Killing Moon" by Echo and the, uh, Bunnymen -- the perfect tone to set for the movie, but inexplicably it's only in the original version).

If you haven't seen it, it is definitely worth a rent. Even though leaving out "The Killing Moon" is inexcusable.
