Hot Diggity! More Darko for All …

— Posted by John Campea

Donnie Darko just may be the finest debut film that I’ve ever seen. It released at exactly the wrong time (the plane engine dropping through a teenage boy’s roof didn’t play particularly well in the aftermath of 9-11) but has deservedly developed a strong cult following and according to CNN that’s enough for Newmarket Films to give a theatrical run to a new directors version of the film that runs a solid 20 minutes longer than the original.

Hopefully this time the theatrical run includes Canada. Bubba is pleased. Bubba is very, very pleased.

“Dear Lillian, soon I hope to take you on a Caribbean cruise, where we can hold hands on a soft summer's evening and watch that old Jamaican moon. Why that old Jamaican will be mooning us, I have no idea.”
