#25 - Donnie Darko / Our Top 5 Films Of 2001

Take off that stupid bunny suit and put your best man suit on as we get into one of our longest breakdowns yet, 2001's Donnie Darko! Listen on as Daniel reminisces on his own sleepwalking story, Dean tells everyone to 'Chut Up!', and we both end up debating about the presence of a higher power.
As well as the breakdown, we also find out the result of last episodes Pod v Pod III, have a quick chat about the new 'Best Popular Picture' award added to the Oscars, we look at our next set of matches in our Best Director Tournament, and we give our 'Top 5 Films of 2001' (That aren't on the 250 list)
So come on in and join our journey!
