What makes a cult classic? For director Richard Kelly's "Donnie Darko," starring a young Jake Gyllenhaal, it's its seamless mix of horror, comedy, sci-fi, philosophy, '80s pop music, religious subtext and an unwavering committment to Sparkle Motion.

But how does all that ambition hold up on rewatch?

In this episode, Mike and Brian dive into the movie's best moments, talk trivia and debate the place of "Donnie Darko" among the Best Picture nominees of 2001.
