Not as bad as it sounds
4 September 2003 | by (Chiasso, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I've finally seen this short by Richard Kelly. I'm a huge Donnie Darko fan and I wanted to see the beginnings of this incredibly talented writer/director. Well it's a pretty goofy short with bad acting and all, but you can see that behind it, there's a person who can use his brain. There are several nice ideas and it's also very funny. My advice: see it not expecting too much, you could be surprised.
