The moment undisciplined Donnie caught the heart of the undisciplined little me.
Somehow, his character taught me that I wasn’t just a repudiate dark, that I wasn’t just evil, that it isn’t a guilt to be a free radical, yet it’s a resource. I was different just because of my individual thoughts, I had to show my teeth and - most important - my ideas, I had to ignore the others and let those narrow-minded people talk back and stew in their own juices. Gradually, this awareness became stronger and stronger and then it rescued me from a deep delusion. (Yes, I’m justifying myself for posting such a teenage scene. I still think he’s got great crazy eyes)
Today I feel like a damn cougar (though obviously I’m not) and I want this teen Jake to marry me. I see this all is impossible, but let me daydream.
