Donnie Darko is a movie that will inspire hours of discussion and many repeated viewings. The imagery in this movie is eerily beautiful, but deceptively simple. It doesn't really fit into any one genre, There are elements of Science-Fiction, Comedy and Drama, among others, but it is uncategorizable. Starring Jake Gyllenhall (October Sky) as Donnie, a borderline-schizophrenic teen who hallucinates, among other things, that he has a friend named Frank who is a giant, scary rabbit. Time travel is explained in Donnie in such a way that it is very easy to believe it. And the most important quote from this movie? "Every creature on earth dies alone." This movie is fulfilling and thought-provoking. If you don't like it, I will be shocked. In fact, if you don't like it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why!
