This ancient website is in stasis and is being replaced! Please go check out the new hotness at new.mahnamahna.net.

That new site will move here once this old site's content has been completely migrated to the new system. St. Tim taught us in 1998 that Cool URIs Don't Change, and he is still right.

Turns out there is a new version of Donnie Darko, one of my favorite films, in the works. The “Director’s Cut” will feature scenes cut from the original version — some that were on the DVD, some that were not. There will also be more eighties music, because now Writer-Director Richard Kelly has more money to buy song rights with. There is something a little weird about a director doing a “Director’s Cut” of his first film just a couple years after it came out, and I will approach the new version with some apprehension because I think the original is so nearly perfect (and some of the cut scenes on the DVD were really bad). But I cannot wait to return to Donnie’s world and see it from new angles. One thing I am certain will not change is the ending, for it’s built into the movie’s DNA that it can only end one way. After all, “Every living creature dies alone.”
