Universal kindly sent me Southland Tales today at my request. Since I simply love Donnie Darko, created by the creator of Southland Tales, Richard Kelly, I thought it would be great to review it along with the more recent Southland Tales. May well be a challenging movie since it scores a mere 6.0 on IMDB, and this is in part constituted by the 24.2% of voters who give it 10/10, and the 12.4% who give it 1/10. This is, I think, the most ‘love it or hate it’ movie I’ve stumbled across yet. I’m hoping that I’m in the ‘love it’ camp.
I jumped over to Donnie Darko in IMDB on a whim. Lately I’ve been checking out the ‘View content advisory for parents’ link for movies. It can be pretty useful. It is there, for Donnie Darko, that I found the title for this post: ‘Frank the Bunny Rabbit is also a somewhat frightening character’.
It sounds so ludicrous. But it’s true. And hilarious.
