Valley just single handedly summarized this movie in 100 words or less, and saved you 2 hours and 20 minutes which you can now apply to a more productive activity such as; channel surfing, eating cream cheese and bagels, or baking a cake.  -

Good point Fat. I think most people spend there night rewinding and slo-moing the movie flickers instead of watching Edward Norton beating the crap out of himself in front of his boss.

The people that made "Donnie Darko" can't even explain that movie, but I actually liked it because it took me on a mind trip trying to make up my own conclusions.

I definately thought Darko was a cleverly constructed flick. It did not in my opinion have that "WOW" factor to it though.

Earlier in this thread, I said that I was very disappointed in "Magnolia", at least, when it first came out in 1999.

But I rented it again last week, and now I must say that I am starting to appreciate the movie a little bit more. Some movies just takes repeated viewing to "get" the nuances that go with a film, and "Magnolia" is one of them.

I just thought of another 90's movie that definitely falls into the "disappointing" category:

Stanley Kubrick's last film, "Eyes Wide Shut", with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

I truly cannot understand what Kubrick saw in the material to make this movie. And I think too many people and critics gave this film a passing grade, only because Kubrick died shortly after he finished shooting the film.
