The Unbearable Darkness of Being

Can anyone agree on what DONNIE DARKO is about? Does it matter? Even the director makes ambiguous comments and seems to encourage a divided audience. Rob Lapsley, in leading this session, will present a range of readings from the existential to the psychoanalytic. Then everyone’s invited to join in the discussion with their own interpretations and opinions on the director’s cut.Rob Lapsley is co-author of Film Theory: An Introduction and co-hosts Cornerhouse’s annual Thinking About Cinema course.
