Donnie Darko ()

directed by
featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Mary McDonnell, Holmes Osborne, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze

Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a bright and charming high-school student who also has a dark and willfully eccentric side; he does little to mask his contempt for many of his peers and enjoys challenging the authority of the adults around him. Donnie is also visited on occasion by Frank, a monstrous six-foot rabbit that only Donnie can see who often urges him to perform dangerous and destructive pranks. Late one night, Frank leads Donnie out of his home to inform him that the world will come to an end in less than a month; moments later, the engine of a jet aircraft comes crashing through the ceiling of Donnie's room, making him think there might be something to Frank's prophesies after all. The rest of Donnie's world is only marginally less bizarre, as he finds himself dealing with his confused parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), his college-age sister (Maggie Gyllenhaal), his perplexed analyst (Katherine Ross), a rebellious English teacher (Drew Barrymore), a sleazy self-help expert (Patrick Swayze), and the new girl at school who is attracted by Donnie's quirks (Jena Malone). Donnie Darko was the first feature film from writer and director Richard Kelly; Drew Barrymore, who plays teacher Karen Pomeroy, also lent her support to the project as executive producer. A director's cut played in select theaters on a limited basis in the summer of 2004, featuring original music cues and trimmed scenes originally in Kelly's first cut of the film.

Donnie Darko is a brilliant film. It is the kind of film you watch once and enjoy and each time you re watch it, you pick up on new details, really huge things you should have noticed before, to tiny nuances that are inperciptable the first time round. The sound track is brilliant and has loads of '80's classics from Tears for Fears and Echo and the Bunnymen etc. Really adds to the atmosphere of the film. Donnie is a disturbed teenager who sees the image of a six foot rabbit named Frank. Frank seems to have all of the answers and appears to Donnie and gives him little bits of information. Donnie has some hilarious scenes with this psychologist and with his sister. The film does have some quite comedic moments and although the story is very dark, the film on the whole has a real hopeful feeling about it and you finish watching it feeling pretty good about life. Highly recommended!
