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!
