Donnie Darko Southland Tales The Box None of these films are perfect, especially Southland Tales, but this director is one of the most intriguing we've had since David Lynch. He takes chances, experiments, and makes us think as well as feel. Most importantly, he takes us to a different world- his, and makes us want to stay. I haven't completely figured him out yet, and that's why I like his work. Kelly is an original to be sure. His films so far are what I would call beautiful messes. But when he gets it figured out, he's going to be one of our best ever. Here's to another future great surrealist.
