I watched the movie Donnie Darko last night. Well, most of it. Fast-forwarded from time to time. It's supposed to be something of a cult classic and it's certainly confusing enough to give the coffee-cup rattlers something to talk about.
Despite my overall lack of enthusiasm, there was, however, one line in it which I enjoyed.
At one point we have an uptight, born-again Christian type woman complaining bitterly that a high-school teacher is asking teenage children to read a short story by Graham Greene -- a story which she describes as 'filth'.
Someone tries to change her mind. 'I don't think you even know who Graham Greene is,' the character says.
Our Christian woman gives a haughty sniff. 'Well,' she says, 'I think we've all seen Bonanza.'
But you probably have to be quite old to laugh.
