28 days. 6 hours. 42 minutes. 12 seconds. That is when the world will end.
When I was in high school, my Dad (Movie Guy Extraordinaire) started what he called “The Film Crew,” and, basically without my knowledge, invited several of my friends to once a week come over, watch a movie, and discuss it. I think he wanted to open our minds to something other than American Pie-type cinema, and by showing us films like Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and The Third Man (1949), he did. One night, he invited a friend of his (another film buff) to join us, and this friend said he had chosen this night’s flick because it was one of the best movies he’d ever seen, even though it had completely bombed at the box office. He said we’d probably never heard of it (we hadn’t) and that it was called Donnie Darko.
