Andrews, Michael, Rico Gagliano and Jena Malone. "Donnie Darko: Richard Kelly Makes the Ultimate 80s Mix Tape." MUBI Podcast (April 6, 2023) ["In 2001, writer/director Richard Kelly's genre-busting rookie feature Donnie Darko crashed and burned at the box office. But it almost immediately rose from the ashes to become one of the first cult hits of the 21st century...and it took the music of '80s band Tears for Fears along for the ride. Host Rico Gagliano tells this twisty tale with the help of Kelly, star Jena Malone (The Hunger Games), and the film's composer Michael Andrews—whose stripped-down cover of Tears's "Mad World" became maybe the most unlikely smash hit in UK history."]
