Timewarp Trailer: Donnie Darko

This week, Richard Kelly’s debut picture. Wake up, Donnie.

Was Donnie Darko a fluke, by Richard Kelly? I’m starting to wonder if it is, having seen his follow-up projects Southland Tales and The Box, both of which had the components of great films but lacked the overall spark of his debut. The above trailer underlines the sci-fi aspects of the cult movie, which gained a huge following over here after a budget DVD re-release.
