Films of the Decade - Part Two: 2001
2. Donnie Darko - The cult sleeper that surreptitiously became an iconic film for angst ridden teenagers all across the world is still as absorbing as the first time I watched it. Who would have thought a movie about time travel, giant rabbits and a moody teenager would be such a success? It is a shame that the brilliant storyline has been slightly tarnished with the abysmal cash-in that was S. Darko, but Donnie Darko still holds its own as a very unique and compelling vision.
It was an extremely difficult task to decide which ten films defined the year 2001 - here are my choices that didn't quite make the list:
Y Tu Mama Tambien
The Royal Tenenbaums
The Devil’s Backbone
Enemy At The Gates
Any films I missed? Let me know!
