S. Darko

I was both thrilled and disappointed to discover this teaser trailer among the previews before "Slumdog Millionaire" (I've not made it through the Slumdog film, by the way. I'm sensitive to things like child abuse. It's been paused for about an hour now.)

S. Darko is apparently a spin-off of "Donnie Darko", an all-time favorite. The sequel is told through the eyes of Donnie's younger sister, Samantha. I can't imagine it could even begin to live up to the original (especially the director's cut). Sometimes I question the film industry's commitment to Sparkle Motion.

I had to leave the theater about 20 minutes into Slumdog. I'm glad to hear you found it disturbing. I live in West Wussland when it comes to bad things happening to kids. Nice to have company there.
