The director's cut of Donnie Darko is one of my favorite films of all time but I find myself conflicted upon the addition of the philosophy of time book, you can't just expect that stuff like the manipulated dead and the trap for the chosen will be understandable to the audience without even mention those things but the way it was done does hurt the film.
This edit helped me see the movie in a new light because the meaning of Donnie Darko isn't uncovering the mystery behind it, but rather learning to accept what we did in our childhood and learn that our mistakes weren't our fault, and when you remove the scenes about the mystery, the focus now is more on the themes, and that is where the soul of Donnie Darko is, plus it also more fun for theorize.

This is the Definitive Edition of Donnie Darko for me
