I liked it so much, I'd rewatch it if Kanopy got the Director's cut.

The film isn't meant to provoke the 80s. It's about Donnie learning to see the beauty in the world (Gretchen) so that he can overcome his fear of dying alone, thereby empowering him to accept his death by the plane engine.

Great film and wonderful performances by actors in the early part of their careers. Would like to see the directors cut.

I could not get into this movie, I am finding hard to find good movies, most of them I have never heard of.

A really bad movie. Very self involved and fake deep. Really bad visual graphics. And a lot of useless plot points that try to loosely fit together.

I am so excited to see this film on Kanopy! Such a cult classic from when I was growing up... in time for Halloween too!
