Brief Synopsis:
This edit adds and replaces scenes from the director's cut to the theatrical cut to expand the film while avoiding the philosophy of time travel excerpts in order to preserve the ambiguity of the theatrical cut.
Intention:
I always had a hard time deciding which cut of the film to watch so decided to combine them.

Best version of Donnie Darko. While I heard two extremely minor audio anomalies, they were probably from the original source mix. catferoze chose so well what to include from each version of this film to make it a perfect hybrid cut. No text inserts from the DC explaining time travel. Left the best music from the TC. The chest bubble doesn't grow a finger and tell Donnie come here. Used the meaningful deleted scenes like the father son talk but didn't bother with the many goofy/unnecessary ones. I like this better than both the Theatrical Cut and the Director's Cut. Thanks!
