Finally, a worthy release for an absolute classic!
on 20 April 2017
What an excellent set this is.
Arrow have surpassed themselves, everything the Donnie Darko fan could want is here.
It is about time that someone did justice to this excellent, thought-provoking piece of art commited to film. The box set is very well made and sturdy in construction, the new artwork is wonderful and could not be better in my opinion.
The Blu-ray transfer itself has very slight grain and softness to it, but I find that it works well with the overall tone of the film (being set in the 80's). I have not watched the bonus features yet, but I expect they will not be disappointing.
Too long had Donnie Darko languished in the bargain bin of DVD/ Blu-ray releases, this one finally did the job that Donnie always deserved.
The only small gripe I have is that the book included basically re-hashes much of "The Donnie Darko Book", which I already own.
But I will still give 5 stars as the film is one of the best ever and it finally got some recognition.
Well done Arrow.
