Oops! He didn't do it again
While I totally adore "Donnie Darko", Richard Kelly's "Southland Tales" is a bad movie. Not quite sure why it went so wrong. It is still visually stunning, even though he repeats himself with the picture of the running clouds. The use of popular songs, once original and refreshing in "Donnie", starts to seem outdated. As it was probably meant as a criticism of a totalitarian state, I have to admit that the "V for Vendetta" movie was light years ahead.
