Trivia

The filmmakers were originally asked by the producers of Donnie Darko to create a production diary for the Director's Cut DVD. As a symbol of their love for the film (and wanting to give fans a little something unexpected for the DVD extras), they also decided to create the #1 Fan mockumentary without any of the cast, crew, or producers' knowledge of what exactly they were doing. Only upon seeing the completed film did Richard Kelly agree to put it on the DVD, finding it an odd satirical look at the film, the fans, and himself. See more »

Very funny satire of geeks and "Darko" nuts
21 March 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I purchased the "Donnie Darko Director's Cut" DVD and finally got around to viewing this "darkomentary." I thought it was a genuine one - the winner of a "Darko" fan contest, when in fact I later found out it's a hoax (supposedly) filmed by some of the crew of "Donnie Darko," without the knowledge of the film's director Richard Kelly (hence his confusion in this short).

Essentially it's about a geek named Darryl Donaldson who has a major obsession with "Donnie Darko" (he has about thirty copies of the DVD, all exactly the same, which he calls his shrine).

If you think this is real at first it's quite a shock because it's almost sickeningly pathetic. But once "Darryl" started singing to the Donnie Darko Soundtrack I realized it had to be a fake.

Still, fake or no fake, it's a very clever (and laugh-out-loud funny!) parody of "Darko" nuts and geeks in general - it's sort of scary to realize there are some people like this who lurk on the "Donnie Darko" and "Lord of the Rings" message boards on IMDb itself. Watch out!
