Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut (2004) - ickleReview (DVD)

Recut of the 2001 original with 20 minutes of additional footage, redesigned sound and visual effects, a slightly reordered soundtrack of songs, and a commentary track by director Richard Kelly and Kevin Smith.

Nugget: elucidates some of the ambiguities of the original version without spoiling it, as I had feared. A good complement for fans of the film, but should not be treated as the superior version.

Note: this review refers to the Region 2 single disc edition.

Read the full review on FilmExposed.
