Allowed content in classic films is so strange sometimes. I think they must have taken the censors out and gotten them drunk for Gilda. The sexual banter is pretty blunt, and the images! See this bit lighting a cigarette, plus she wears a transparent blouse with -- as far as I can see - nothing under it. She twirls to make the effect clear.

S. Darko. The S. stands for "Sh*tty", particularly when compared to the vastly superior Donnie Darko. Thankful, I was going to buy this movie sight unseen, being such a fan of the first film, but I watched it at a friends house. Dodged a bullet there.

Unloved flop sequel to the cult original. I wasn't paying enough attention to determine if there was a real Darko-esque tangent universe plot here. Some pretty photography.

"S" actually stands for Samantha, and the kid sister is played by the same actress in both films. I had to look that up.

Mine was a borrowed copy, too.
