Donnie Darko dir. Richard Kelly (2001) Set in the lead-up to Halloween 1988, Donnie Darko is an intelligent, at times disturbing, cult SF classic, made on a $4 million budget and easily outshining its more Hollywood-hyped rivals. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a teen unhinged by prescient doomsday visions.
Memory Lane dir. Shawn Holmes (2014) Independent filmmaker Shawn Holmes debuts with an adroitly scripted, well-acted, gloomy piece of supernatural intrigue. Memory Lane feels short at sixty-eight minutes, but given even a brass razoo for a budget, Holmes could well bring us the next Memento or Donnie Darko.
