October 1988 and small town USA is about to witness the end of the world. It's home to Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal), a brilliant but troubled teenager, plagued by terrifying visions of which he alone holds the key to the meaning. With his class mate and soul mate Gretchen (Jena Malone) and a mysterious ex teacher, Grandma Death (Patience Cleveland), he must unravel the strange occurrences infecting his school, his home and his life before a horrifying spectre known only as "Frank" (James Duval) can pull Donnie over the edge of his sanity.

Like Nothing Seen Before or After - Donnie Darko review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
10/07/2008

Richard Kelly's masterpiece is an achievement like no other film. Great 80's soundtrack accompanies a story that is so bizarre and fascinating I couldn't keep my eyes from the screen.

It follows Donnie a rebellious but brilliant teenager who is visited by a giant bunny called 'Frank' who tells him when the world will end. Sounds strange and it is but it is handled so well that it doesn't detrack from the amazing performance - Jake Gyllenhaal: a star is born!

I cannot recommend this film enough! Watch it! Rent it! Own it!
