Movies that are slightly off.
Dark. Darker. Darko.
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.
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…

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…
No joke I know two people with 28:6:42:12 tattooed on their arm. It's a fine tat if you're 17 but when you're every bit of 30, I'm going to make fun of you. Not that Donnie Darko is a bad movie, in fact it's one I enjoy very much. Getting a Darko tattoo is worse than The Jokers tats in the Suicide Squad movie. While you're at it you should just get a hot topic logo tattoo. One time I saw a guy with a Chester Cheeto tattoo, now that is a tat I can RESPECT because I know he understands the subtleties of cheese flavoured corn SNACKS and didn't just get it to impress chicks.

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…
I have loved movies for as long as I can remember, but things changed in 2001. I turned 17 that year and a vast majority of my time was spent hanging out with friends, finding ways to acquire and consume cheap alcohol and smoking an incomprehensible amount of reefer. At a time when my hormones were raging, I made no attempt to meet girls. At a time when everyone around me was applying for college, I didn't even pretend to study. At a time when I should have been trying to understand the fascinating complexities of the world around me, I shut down and settled into a routine of apathy and sadness.
I didn't like myself. I wasn't…
Una película que te deja pensando sobre ella días y días, una historia casi onírica donde el desconcierto de no saber que está pasando te engancha con la misma fuerza que algunos de sus espléndidos personajes, una película de culto en toda regla.
I can make a list about the similarities between Max Caulfied, Life is Stange and Donnie Darko
One of my new favorites films, a lot to think about the quotes.
My mind got fucked and i loved it.
Not my kind of film but very strong concept.
Donnie Darko is an excellent film! It manages to pull off an extremely compelling story with its mystery, and revealing plot elements. Along with the story you get a fantastic performance from Jake Gyllenhaal as Donnie, and very good performances from the supporting cast! Not to mention the artful direction and cinematography, and varied score that undergoes, which really just draws you in to the story even more!
Continually throughout the film you wonder if Donnie has some psychological issues or whether what he is foreseeing and Frank, are real. The filmmakers put you inside of Donnie's head as he journey's to find out what Frank is talking about and showing him, and through this you get different pieces of…
One time when my film school boyfriend and i were making love, he said "Donnie Darko" instead of my name. I don't even think he was thinking about the character, which I would have understood. I'm pretty sure it was just the movie in general. We broke up a bit after that.
Great movie though.
i still want to punch jake gyllenhall in the face
