*Rolls a blunt

While watching Enter the Void, I was under the impression that I could have a seizure at any one moment, especially the opening credits! However, I did quite enjoy it. Darko was quite bizarre as well, but I liked it just slightly more because it didn't over stay its welcome in the last half hour like 'Void' did.

"Darko," though I'm not a huge fan of either. You put it perfectly, MrBrown, "Void" overstays its welcome near the end and, I'd argue, is a work of almost TOO MUCH conviction - the blinking was especially ludicrous.

I loved both, but I do agree that Enter the Void overstayed its welcome in the last half hour. It's as if the filmmaker was telling me, "You were uncomfortable before? You haven't seen nothing yet!" Definitely went overboard near the end, but the rest of the film more than makes up for it, imo. Donnie Darko on the other hand... I just fkn love Donnie Darko. Difficult to describe why, but I just do.

"*Rolls a blunt" Yes, indeedy!
