    Donnie Darko sets a new standard in independent film making. By far, it will be one of the strangest, yet compelling films you'll ever see for a long time. This film is certainly something to put next to the likes of What The Bleep Do We Know?, and The Butterfly Effect.

    From the very start, you're placed smack bang in the middle of something you'll never, ever, be able to comprehend. For the whole film, you'll be wondering what will happen next, as well as wonder why you're where you are in the first place. Jake Gyllenhaal makes an excellent protagonist in what might be the strangest film in his career.

    There is a lot of philosophy in this film, as well as applied physics. Donnie, being a troubled young man, and also being depressive, has a lot of thoughts running through his head at one time. Throughout the film, you'll see just how troubled, yet brilliant he can be, with some of the strangest, yet stunning one-liners, and prose you'll hear in a film. He'll make something seem completely plausible, even if before you had doubt in it. The meaning of life, the true reason for Smurfs, and time travel, all explained by Donnie, with the help of a book, and an over zealous science teacher.

    Donnie Darko will leave you heart struck, and amazed at just how easily things will unfold, and when something can go wrong, it will undeniably go wrong. Uncover how people hide their true persona's and understand what it's like to be in the position of a troubled young man such as Donnie.

    Superb acting from the entire cast, and scenes that will stick in your mind for ever, Donnie Darko: The Directors Cut is not only an improvment to the original film, but is most certainly a direct contender to any film ever made. Don't let the positive hype put you off. You must see this film yourself to really appreciate just how beautiful it is.


     One of the Best cult movies of the last Decade

    An Excellent, Thoughtful Sci-Fi movie, with a few Intelligent Twists and Turns.
    People make it out to be a movie that is hard to understand, which it is on certain level,
    But you can certainly still enjoy it on a more basic level, due to the Assured Direction,
    Spot on Performances, and the Brilliant 80s feel

    A real gem of a film. and a wonderfull sountrack. The main idea behind the film is consequence, each one effects the next it twists and turns and may take a couple of viewings to get into but it is never a chore but requires you're full attention for the entire duration. Jake Gyllenhaal seems the perfect choice for the role of Donnie ,also see's Swayze return to form as a loathsome self help coach with a lot of skeletons in the closet. Compelling and highly recomended a must see.

     more of a puzzle than a film!

    possibly one of the most confusing films of all time but also one of the most intellegent. it is so deep ive watched it 7 times now and im still spotting stuff ive not noticed before. the donnie darko website helps you understand it alot more. the special features could of been better but for the price you cant complain this truly is an amazing film and everyone will have a diffrent look on wat the films about. dont expect to be able to understand this film on the first play through i had to watch this film 3 times before i could understand the upmost of it.
    thanks play

    Donnie Darko is a film you'll either 'not get' and hate, or 'not get' and love. Without some insight (check the DD website for The Philosophy of Time Travel...) the events in this film seem fairly non sensical nor linear. However, it works thanks to its oddball charm, excellent performance from Jake Gyllenhal and wry black humour. Its 80's backdrop and accompanying soundtrack are also striking. Its definitely a film that benefits from repeat viewings, and as I mentioned earlier if you check out the literature it opens doors to many theories that you'll be discussing for hours and hours to come.
