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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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]
This key expose it in the spoiler, but strongly recommended to read before seeing the film I recommend.
The film has a rational basis, which is explained in the book "The philosophy of time travel." This book is not an ordinary publication, but appears in the film, written by Mrs. Death. However in the official website and on the DVD if excerpts are included to give a sufficient idea.
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 ï¿½Harveyï¿½. 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 itï¿½s a psychodrama about a young man with schizophrenia but this is not ï¿½A Beautiful Mindï¿½. It also ponders the possibility of time travel but this is not science fiction.Read more ›

Hard to categorize, it's a mix of science-fiction and teen romantic comedy, with a lot of horror and thrill. Excellent actors and script, a must see film.Published 11 months ago by MARC-OLIVIER ROBICHAUD
A movie that will let you wonder... You should watch it twice. The story structure is similar to Jacob's Ladder, but it is not not as gory.Published 14 months ago by Michel Hebert
