Donnie Darko

Revisit Jake Gyllenhaal in the role that solidified his status as a breakout star.

During the presidential election of 1988, a teenager named Donnie Darko sleepwalks out of his house one night and sees a giant, demonic-looking rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world will end in 28 days. When Donnie returns home, he finds that a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom. Is Donnie living in a parallel universe, is he suffering from mental illness – or will the world really end?

The Guardian – “The film is bittersweet at best and plungingly tragic at worst – but it feels honest and inclusive in its despair.” (full review here)

Entertainment Weekly – “Kelly, the 26-year-old writer-director of this excitingly original indie vision, shares more artistically with Wes Anderson or Paul Thomas Anderson than he does with Spielberg or John Hughes, but the point is, he’s out on his own here. He swings big — with flair.” (full review here)

Roger Ebert – “There is a kind of movie that calls out not merely to be experienced but to be solved. The plot coils back on itself in intriguing mind puzzles, and moviegoers send bewildering e-mails to one another, explaining it.” (full review here)
