visually there’s alot of similitude with Requiem for a dream, the way the scene are shot you always feels claustrophobic, rushed, stressed.
the movie is about a team of scientist (student? i dont remember) working on ai program // mapping human brain, at one point they can control rats very precisely. (the alpha rats send command to the other rats and they all to the same things, and if the alpha rats is killed, the rats react by attacking each other until another alpha rats is “found”
this is the first part of the movie, if this is not enough information i will add more, i just dont want to over spoil the movie if by chance that little part is enough.
Well here is a list of movies IMDB came up with based on what i could glean from your description.
I would say none of these are your movie, though I might be wrong. The only movies I haven’t seen from the list is Life and Isle of Dogs and life. The wierdest out the bunch would have to be The Zero Theorem, I only watched it once and honestly never wanted to watch it again, so it might be the title as I have largely forgot the smaller plot details.
It has Sam Neill in it! A famous actor from my country and known for being in Jurassic Park and its sequels. I looked at the trailer, tbh it doesn’t look super promising for me, but you do like Donnie Darko and although that movie is now a cult classic, I feel it is still an underappreciated film so I may have to give this movie a go.
Look I did it so you don’t have to, its not the same director and in fact he had nothing to do with it. It takes the concept from Donnie and just wrecks it really. It’s dumb, convoluted and thinks its smarter than it is. I mean watch it if you want but don’t say I didn’t warn you, it’s a waste of your time and adds nothing to the Donnie Darko universe, if anything it takes away from it.
My recommendation would be to watch the directors cut of Donnie Darko, if you have only watched the original movie I think the directors cut explains things a bit more as it shows excerpts from the Robeta’s book and clears some stuff up. Some people like the mystery and I think this version still leaves a lot to be interpreted but it really depends on what you prefer. I actually watched the directors cut first as I was given it as an assignment from an english teacher in high school to write a report on, I watched it 3 times in a row and then once more with director’s commentary and did a lot of research online to help me understand it.
I can’t just hear that there’s a dumb sequel to a movie I like and then not watch it.
I’ve got it downloaded but knowing myself it will probably sit on my harddrive for 2 years until I get around to it (I will remember to blame you though).
There are plenty of dumb sequels to movies that most people likely don’t know exist. For instance I found out that there was a sequel to Kindergarten Cop 2 that came out a few years ago with Dolph Lundren
There sure is, I watch most of them and get disappointed. But it doesn’t really take anything away from the first movies.
I mean most of the sequels to The Crow are just awful but the original movie holds up well despite it all.
