The end makes no sense without going on the internet and reading an entire fucking webpage to explain it. I thought Frank was a total letdown when he took off his mask. I think this movie is like Inception where a bunch of fags pretend to like it and act like they understand it because they want to seem smart. 6/10
>>25716124 Poor ability to understand storylines detected. The movie is not complex at all. It isn't great, but you don't have to "go on the internet and reading an entire fucking webpage to explain it".
The first time I saw this movie was the first time I drank. It was with an old childhood friend I haven't seen in almost a decade. I learned that night that I enjoyed the taste of alcohol (it was straight bottom-shelf vodka) and enjoyed being drunk. I thought the movie was great since I was drunk as hell. About half a year later I rewatched it and realized I didn't remember almost anything between him meeting the girl and 'Mad World' at the credits. Was a great feeling, like the movie had changed between viewings--very fitting for the film. TLDR, I liked it and don't think it's too tryhard or people who like it are lying. Lot of honest moments in the movie.
The movie is better if don't fully understand the plot, it has a sense of mystery and make you think about what you saw. The explanation (of the director) on the net, looks like a bad fanfiction written after someone has played Chrono Cross, especially the "long version" with all the details about time travel.
It's no wonder all his later movies are giants clusterfuck full of faux-symbolism and alternate reality, he's basically that kid in middle school that think complexity = deepness.
>>25716007 i really liked it. pretty sur eit was my favourite movie when i first saw it. pretty sure they show short pages of a book in the movie. if you stream it make sure to pause and read then the ending should be pretty easy to understand but i think you will get the generell idea without it.
>>25716124 >Inception >Act like they understand it Nigger, what the fuck is there to not understand? It's a fucking dream in a dream in a dream in a dream, how god damn retarded do you need to be to not understand it?
Guy is dead. Doesn't matter if he seems alive. All the Schitzoshit is just last seconds in his subconscious before he dies. He is projecting his consciousness onto all the characters and events in the film. That's why it all goes his way weirdly enough. Also allot of subjective voice overs from our dead protagonist trying to rationalize events leading up to his death.
>>25719410 good point. I just hate how most hollywood movies have "happy endings", after all, life doesn't always have a happy ending. Sometimes shit doesn't just 'work out in the end', and the good guy doesn't always win.
Requiem was quiet a refreshing film for me, before it I hadn't seen a film with such a negative ending.
Yes happy endings gives us resolution in film. If we left with our characters not solving there problems cutting to credits it upsets us because we where emotionally engaged with them and want to see them succeed in solving there main problem in the plot.
The fact is most normies can't handle a unhappy ending with out giving a 1/10 rating on some webshit movie rating site like IMDB.
>be kid >some movie on late tv >somehow felt like creepy horror to me >turn off the box right after intro scene >some years later >decided to search the movie >ask some anons on internet >"m8 it's Donnie Darko!" >i knew this movie, because he became quite popular >some time later >@ girl >we listen music >she plays Killing Moon by Echo and Bunnymen >some year later >finally prepared to rewatch damn movie >that intro scene >Killing Moon starts playing
It's literally that exact second i realized that this movie will be in my top10 ever. Wasn't disappointed for the rest of it too.
