Product Description

Amazon.ca

This unclassifiable but stunningly original film obliterates the walls between teen comedy, science fiction, family drama, horror, and cultural satire--and remains wildly entertaining throughout. Jake Gyllenhaal (October Sky) stars as Donnie, a borderline-schizophrenic adolescent for whom there is no difference between the signs and wonders of reality (a plane crash that decimates his house) and hallucination (a man-sized, reptilian rabbit who talks to him). Obsessed with the science of time travel and acutely aware of the world around him, Donnie is isolated by his powers of analysis and the apocalyptic visions that no one else seems to share. The debut feature of writer-director Richard Kelly, Donnie Darko is a shattering, hypnotic work that sets its own terms and gambles--rightfully so, as it turns out--that a viewer will stay aboard for the full ride. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Movie Of All Time May 8 2010
By STM87
Format:Blu-ray
I love Donnie Darko. It's my favorite movie of all time. Every time you watch it you get a different perspective on what the movie is about. If you like unique movies which give you many perspectives similar to the butterfly effect you'll like this movie.
The Quality on blu-ray isn't enhanced by much but thats because of the way it was filmed. Great audio. Lovely soundtrack.Donnie Darko [Blu-ray]

5.0 out of 5 stars Donnie Darko Nov. 27 2011
By Kevin
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love this movie and was so happy to hear that a 10th Anniversary blu ray dvd combo was coming out. The combo has both the theatrical and the director's cut, and has loads of extra features. This is a must have for any Donnie Darko enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Think We´¿ve All Seen Bonanza!!! ***** March 3 2003
Format:DVD
Donnie Darko is a very difficult movie to characterise and assign to one or even two genres, which is also part of its appeal and fascination. It opens with the title character (Jake Gyllenhall) waking in his pyjamas, with his bike lying next to him, on a highway overlooking his hometown of Middlesex, set in an idyllic tree covered valley. Straightening up he looks out toward the rising sun on the horizon and with a knowing smile he re-mounts his bicycle and makes his way back home to the tune of Echo and The Bunnymen´¿s ´¿The Killing Moon´¿ in what is an excellent opening sequence. Right from these first few frames it was obvious that I was about to witness something very original and it had me hooked.
Donnie Darko is inspired (I would guess) by the weird combination of Philip K Dick, Wes Anderson, JD Salinger and the classic James Stewart movie ´¿Harvey´¿. It announces the arrival of two great new talents in Writer/Director Richard Kelly and the young actor Jake Gyllenhall, in what is a hugely original, ingenious and entertaining movie. Set in 1988, around Halloween time, this movie has the conventional leafy-suburbia-plus-high-school setting, which alludes to the horror genre of Carrie and Halloween but it is no horror movie. It also has specific elements that suggest that it´¿s a psychodrama about a young man with schizophrenia but this is not ´¿A Beautiful Mind´¿. It also ponders the possibility of time travel but this is not science fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good film March 6 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Donnie Darko is an interesting movie. Certain scenes have a certain type of 'art' behind them that make this movie very good to watch. And is the type of movie that if you don't pay attention to everything in the movie, you will be left confused, and have to re-watch it to understand what the hell just happened. I recommend this movie to those who are into movies that make you think and try to understand what just happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Feb. 2 2013

A truly dark and disturbing film for those who enjoy the craft of building suspense.
You don't need big budgets to make a great thriller just a daring script and subtle acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars a movie for those of us who like to think Oct. 19 2006
Format:DVD
I never really waste my time writing these reviews, but after seeing the other reviews written about what is most likely the best movie I will ever get the chance to experience in my lifetime, I feel compelled to contort on the injustices being served by some critics who seem very passionate on labelling it as some sort of acid trip movie, or worse, complete jargon.

while staggeringly complex in its plot and use of alliteration,all other aspects of this movie are what I consider to be masterful. The structure of the Darko family and their social orientation in their cookie cutter small suburban town in a time piece movie such as this are eerily realistic. The dinner table scenes where the family discusses their day blew me away. The dialogue and acting in these parts, the way the characters are developed,is just amazing to watch. The use of music and great cinematography create an almost unforgettable experience, and really set to define the setting of this story. And While many seem to suggest that the scenes seem to jump around or that there are too many holes, dont seem to understand that a)movies are not books and i have never watched a movie with any artistic or literary muscle that explains everything, this is very much an open to interpretation piece that asks you to use your brain and not forget you have one, b)while i agree that the first cut had some explaining to do, i do not think that the directors cut leaves anything that is needed for understanding out,and c)as someone who has studied very little in the art world, but has a great appreciation for it, I understand that the whole jumping around thing is an attribute to an intense amount of post-modern art, and if used carefully and effectively (as I no doubt feel it has in this film) keeps the viewer intrigued and aware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donnie Darko meets The Sacrifice June 11 2007
Format:DVD
Obviously a billion film and pop culture references in this flick - great, rich stuff that's launched a thousand arguments.

One thing occurs to me - I know there's been much made of both the writer/director's "tangent universe" stuff as well as the Christ allusions. All that's going on and more.

Clearly Donnie's isolated as all get out at the beginning but increasingly connects with a few people - Gretchen, his Smurf-pondering friends, and eventually even his mom. This move from isolation appears to be one of the key character developments in the film - that he goes from being terrified of dieing alone (because he is alone) to dieing because he's no longer alone and can do something meaningful for those he's connected with. A form of sacrifice.

So I couldn't help thinking about the movie "The Sacrifice" by Tarkovsky with it's own odd sci-fi/religious plot about the end of the world. And the long coda featuring those who survive.

Certainly there's much, much more going on. But for me this was a way to see through all the tangent universe mumbo-jumbo into something a little more familiar and comprehensible without reading the freakin' manual to the film.

A complex, ambitious and ultimately successful movie. With a kickin' soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attention David Lynch Fans
This is a great mind-bender of a movie. It borrows heavily from David Lynch but in all the right ways. If you are a Twin Peaks fan, Donnie Darko will give you a fix. Read more
