As an avid movie watcher, I have to say the first time I watched Donnie Darko it completely blew my mind. Everything about how the film was captured, how well the music fitted and how brilliant the actors were captured me. This dark, deep film would definitely be one of my favourites. But one of my favourite things about this movie would be how quotable it is; this film is bursting full of ingenious lines, and it is with one of those that I want to inspire you with this week. Think about this quote, one of my favourites in the movie:
‘Every living creature on Earth dies alone.’
I want you to think about this quote, take it apart, analyse it and put it back together. And then I want you to write. Write a short story, poem or monologue either using this quote as the title or as a line within the piece. That is your only rule- you must use the quote. And apologies that this week’s inspiration is a tad more morbid, but everything in life isn’t always happy, and sometimes the most tragic of things can be the most beautiful.
I hope this prompt helps you out, and I would honestly recommend anyone to watch this film as soon as you can. And make sure to leave a comment in the Feedback page on your work or even something about Donnie Darko and I’ll get back to you- I love hearing from you all!
