Jake Gyllenhaal: 'Duncan Jones Is Amazing'


Jake Gyllenhaal Donnie Darko Duncan Jones InMe Michelle Monaghan The Script Vera Farmiga

Jake Gyllenhaal wanted to work with Duncan Jones on 'Source Code' because he thought he was "amazing".

The 'Donnie Darko' star plays a soldier who wakes up in another man's body in the movie, and he confesses he wanted a new director to work on the project because of the unusual nature of The Script.

He told Collider.com: "I read the script and I knew it would only work with a director who had an intense, clear vision. When I saw 'Moon' I thought, 'This guy is amazing.' His visual sense, his sense of rhythm. I just said, 'This guy is like the next thing, he is amazing.'

Jake Gyllenhaal isn't worried about turning 30 because his life is just "beginning".

The 'Brokeback Mountain' actor reaches the milestone age on December 19 and is confident his 30s will be better than his 20s because he is comfortable in his own skin.

He said: "I'm not 30 yet, but I definitely feel more like myself. I feel like now, it's just the beginning. I guess you get to a point at 30 or somewhere and you say, 'What I am, is what I am and that's what I'm going to be and that's all good. I don't need to be anything else.' And that's kind of how I feel."

Vanilla Sky Voted Most Confusing Film Ever


Tom Cruise Cameron Diaz David Lynch Donnie Darko Penelope Cruz The Matrix

'Vanilla Sky' has been voted the most confusing film ever made.

The 2001 movie - which starred Tom Cruise and his ex-girlfriend Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz - topped a poll run by DVD subscription firm LoveFilm as fans found the plotline difficult to understand.

The film - which was directed by Cameron Crowe - told a surreal tale of a wealthy publishing heir, played by Cruise, who, after a car accident leaves him horribly disfigured, begins to suffer from a series of strange hallucinations.

Movie Reviews The Box


Chicago Donnie Darko

How much you're likely to enjoy The Box , which opened at the box office in sixth place with $7.9 million over the weekend, may well depend on how well you are able to cope with preposterous story lines. Indeed, that word -- "preposterous" -- cropped up in many, if not most, of the reviews of the film. In her mixed review, Manohla Dargis in the New York Times regarded The Box as "a serious work that insists on its own seriousness even when it edges toward the preposterous." However, Claudia Puig in USA Today wrote that "director Richard Kelly has fashioned a preposterous tale that lacks the wit that made his Donnie Darko a cult classic." Elizabeth Weitzman in the New York Daily News scoffed at the movie's "preposterous special effects." But Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times, while acknowledging that "preposterous" is "one of my favorite adjectives," nevertheless went on to write, "If you make a preposterous movie that isn't boring, I count that as some kind of a triumph." He concluded "This movie kept me involved and intrigued, and for that I'm grateful. I'm beginning to wonder whether, in some situations, absurdity might not be a strength." But "boring" was indeed the operative term for several critics. "Have you ever actually tried watching paint dry? A sloth walk? Grass grow?" Asked Betsy Sharkey in the Los Angeles Times. "You can have all the 'thrills' with none of the chills courtesy of The Box. "

The 22-year-old actress loves going out with friends to dance and drink and found it difficult dating the Donnie Darko actor, because he wanted to relax at home, and so they parted ways last month (JUL04).

British rockers The Darkness have been beaten to the Christmas Number One spot by a little-known American duo.

Gary Jules and Michael Andrews achieved the coveted top spot with a cover of Tears For Fears' 1982 hit MAD WORLD - and sensationally trounced the Lowestoft bands' CHRISTMAS TIME (DON'T LET THE BELLS END).

After a nail-biting week, in which the Darkness had edged ahead of Jules during the crucial 'midweek' sales figures, it was widely expected that the GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY WOMAN band would achieve their first British number one.
