Donnie Darko Extended

One of my favorite movies from 2001, Donnie Darko is getting an extended cut in the cinemas. Richard Kelly (writer/director) spilled some beans to the Empire Magazine:

It will expand the meaning of the film and offer more clues and more solutions to the puzzle and create an additional layer of mystery for the audience. There really is a tremendous amount of new material – some of which will surprise even the most die-hard fans. One thing I am really excited about is the new sound. I was really unhappy with the mix that we had in the first cut. We never really had time to go in properly and design the sound. We can go back and really get it right this time. I’m very excited about the new sonic elements of the film.

I am really looking forward to this. My guess is that the Grandma Death storyline will be fleshed out and maybe the noah wyle character. Hopefully, it will answer whether Donnie wakes up in an alternate reality or does he only have the power of knowledge? Not so sure about the music bit. I happen to love that score and the soundtrack was perfect.

Edmund Husserl’s PussyCat

Yesterday, we were supposed to go see Russ Meyer’s magnum opus Faster, PussyCat Kill! Kill! at Doc Films – which is having a banner quarter (kudos to the volunteers-check the calendar here). I come home around 4ish and I am not even tired. Yet, when Eduardo called me at 6 to go, I was fast asleep. He could not persuade me to move, though he made one HELL of an argument that normally would have had me bolting outda door.
I felt bad afterwards to have missed the movie on the big screen.
I was looking around to see if T&A was an actual film term and I discovered that Barnes & Nobles has an excellent Film Glossary that covers every aspect of the film industry. Way to go B&N.
Oh, the answer is No. T&A is not a accepted film genre. PussyCat would be a Girl Gang Film. Grumpy Old Man would be a Gerontological Film. And I am tagging Phenomenology genre as an upcoming post.
