Donnie Darko

“Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!”

Richard Kelly carves up suburbia like a surgeon, revealing all the dark, hidden secrets begging to get out.

And that’s before the giant metallic rabbit, time travel, and space vortexes enter the conversation.

Stumbling along in an over-medicated haze, Jake Gyllenhaal is the linchpin holding everything together, his warped grin barely disguising the mix of anguish and anger which roil his soul.

The universe is collapsing on itself — or something like that — and this high school low-achiever holds the key to everyone’s fate.

If he can just wake up in time.
