Spiritual Cinema

A commenter at Eschaton pointed to a new film called "What the *&%# Do We Know!?". Looks to be very worthwhile. Good site, too. You can click on "Showtimes & Tickets" and find out if and when it will play in your area.

Speaking of spiritual cinema, Donnie Darko has been re-released in a Director's Cut version with 21 extra minutes. I haven't seen it yet, but I hear director Richard Kelly replaced the Echo and the Bunnymen song "The Killing Moon," used in the opening sequence, with INXS' "Never Tear Us Apart." That doesn't bode well; he could not have improved on that opening. themovieboy agrees. He finds the original 2001 version superior.

Kelly says on the DVD deleted scenes commentary track that he was forced to cut the film under two hours but that he fought for the cut he wanted. He then says some of the scenes would have been nice to have but some were best left out. I think he nailed it the first time. Go with the DVD.
