A troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a large bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after narrowly escaping a bizarre accident.
"The search for God is absurd?"
"It is if everyone dies alone."
"Does that scare you?"
"I don't want to be alone."
Such a knockout combination of flavors and tones, genres and influences that it's hard to believe how coherent it all is. Portals expand though the screen of The Evil Dead as a heavenly choir soars within the soundscape. Elementary schoolgirls dance seductively in talent shows, taught by the 'teacher's pet' of a spiritual healer with a dark secret. Nightmares intermingle with the sleepy High School environments of endless houses and endless types of people who we've known. It's a movie where 'sparkle motion' is on the same plane of importance as deluded heroism and schizophrenia, and it's…
When it's your birthday you get your favorite supper, your favorite tipple, birthday sex and the pick of what to watch on the television. For me it was a lovely birthday and of course the movie of choice was my all time favorite "Donnie Darko".
I saw this for the first time back in 2002 and couldn't get it out of my head for weeks. It had an unusual effect on me. I've seen thousands of films, but rarely has one lingered quite so much on my conscience. Without doubt a "cult film", this had so many different theories as to what it was really all about, it would make your head spin.In truth I became a little obsessed. I…
"Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion."
I’m pretty sure I was about 13 when I first saw Donnie Darko and over the years it became a place of refuge whenever I felt completely consumed by angst or rage. It’s like a bible for anyone who feels misunderstood or under-appreciated and during your teenage years this is a very common predicament. As a result of my perpetual torment, Donnie became my version of a teen idol. He appeals to the loner or outsider, he’s the rebel with a cause, a reject from a censored and drugged society who takes on the existential burden that comes with being tasked to save the world.
Donnie Darko is not like other coming-of-age movies because it works against the idea that…
"Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?"
"Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?"
For what seems like the hundredth time, a movie has broken my brain. And it feels brilliant.
Up until now, this was simply 'the creepy rabbit movie' in my mind. Of course it's still partly that, just with the phrase 'simply amazing' added to the front of it. Because, well, it just is. There's that opening, presenting a seemingly normal scene but still managing to give you the feeling that something is definitely going to happen, then manages to keep up the almost sinister camerawork throughout, resulting in some more beautifully shot scenes. Aided of course by that fantastic soundtrack and a brilliant script…
Donnie Darko is funny, it's original, it's mind-boggling, and above all else it is entertaining as hell. Though all these things in the end it is ultimately too heavy and twisted to be fully understood and though this may be intentional it doesn't quite sit well when not enough information is shared. The direction is solid, the story is genius, and Gyllenhaal's performance is impressive for his age. It's an outstanding psychological thriller.
"Donnie what did Roberta Sparrow said to you?"
"She said that every living creature one earth dies alone"
Possibly one of the best films ive seen. at first watch i didnt know what the fuck is happening then i searched for it and then watched it again and it left me exhilarated.
One of those movies you have to watch several times to understand, but you enjoy each and every viewing
This movie is such a trip! By the end of the flick I was totally bamboozled... shook. What the hell was going on? Well I did some reading and I couldn't be more intrigued by the real premise of this movie. Dimensions, worm holes, and time... it's all really cool. The movie itself has a really creepy tone that is elevated by its ambiguity. I loved it.
