Sorry To Ruin Your Coy Parade, Richard Kelly

The blogs today are all about director Richard Kelly’s denial of any involvement in the sequel to Donnie Darko and his sensual seduction over the soundtrack to his new film, The Box. Says Kelly, “We’re starting to work with a very famous band who is honoring us with being the first filmmakers they’ve ever scored a film with.”


Pitchfork says it is Arcade Fire. I like the Arcade Fire. I bet that will be a good soundtrack.

But I’m sorry, I still can’t believe Hollywood is even letting Richard Kelly make another movie after Southland Tales. I thought Donnie Darko was an overdone student thesis film based on a synopsis of a short story Kelly read in the back of Aren’t You Clever magazine, but fine, the kids enjoyed it. But Southland Tales? I’m pretty sure he owes America a letter of apology for that one. He can address it to Citizens Against Richard Kelly c/o, we’ll take it from there.
