Tears for Fears video REDUX

You might know it as the song you hear in Donnie Darko, but back in the 80’s there was this big band called Tears for Fears that was pretty cool, kinda cheesy but everything was then anyway. (By the way, NEVER EVER WATCH Richard Kelly’s other movie SOUTHLAND TALES, its the worst piece ever.)  Here’s the original video, then watch the redux;

and another special bonus for you:

  1. Donnie Darko was awesome

    Southland tales was amusing as long as you didn’t take it to seriously. I think he was trying to do way to much in such a short movie. He should have made that a 3-4 hour movie to say what he really wanted to get across.

    what that was, i’m still not sure.

  2. If Southland Tales was 3-4 hours long there would have been mass rioting and suicide amongst movie-goers (if anyone saw that god-awful travesty in theaters). It’s been many years since I turned a movie off before finishing it, and I have watched some incredibly bad movies all the way through…and I couldnt finish it. If Richard Kelly could get an award for Southland Tales, it would be from the principal in billy madison, who awarded him no points, pointed out that we are all now stupider, and hoped that God may have mercy on his soul.
