Donnie Darko: Donnie Darko doesn't get along too well with his family, his teachers and his classmates; but he does manage to find a sympathetic friend in Gretchen, who agrees to date him. He has a compassionate psychiatrist, who discovers hypnosis is the means to unlock hidden secrets. His other companion may not be a true ally. Donnie has a friend named Frank - a large bunny which only Donnie can see. When an engine falls off a plane and destroys his bedroom, Donnie is not there. Both the event, and Donnie's escape, seem to have been caused by supernatural events. Donnie's mental illness, if such it is, may never allow him to find out for sure.

Great movie. The actual plot twist is never spelled out, but instead showed and suggested. Crazy film once you understand what happens. 10/10

This is the first time i've watched this movie, and wow. It's freaking awesome! Jake Gyllenhaal's performance is really, really good, and so is everyone else's. Really cool that this was Seth Rogen's debut film as well.

Holy wow! Don't know why it took me so long to see this movie! It's among my favourites now. Thank you, Primewire and uploaders.

Really great movie, the acting was very good. And the story line was wonderful, I did get a little confused at the end though. The rabbit was really creepy!

An incredible, amazing film, it's intelligent, terrifying and mind-blowing. Jake Gyllenhaal gives a superb performance as a troubled teen, and is supported by a talented cast. A brilliant storyline written and directed by Richard Kelly. Worth more than one watch... 8.5/10

One of my all-time favorites. Unfortunate timing (right after the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.) kept this movie (involving an airline disaster - folks just weren't in the mood at that point) from gaining the notoriety it probably would otherwise have gained. So many actors from this film went on to have much more stellar careers. Nobody knows what the whole thing means, though many will claim to. It's definitely for those who like puzzles, and plots that - while internally consistent - aren't necessarily logical. I've loved this movie for over 10 years, and I still haven't got it all figured out. It's the kind of movie that's easy to watch over and over again. I definitely recommend it for folks who like something a bit (quote) off (unquote) in their movies! Not for folks who like straight-forward logic or all ends tied-off neatly by the movie's conclusion. ;-)

amazing film and soundtrack! you might feel confused after watching it, but it's the incredible-mind-f***-confusing type. just watch the movie and 'chut up!' :) 5/5

this was so damn trippy, unbelievable movie. a masterpiece that deserves a lot of praise. 10/10

While I can see where this could be and is a classic for the masses, I must say - personally, I find it highly over-rated and very disappointing. Not one I would ever watch again.

Really Good mive with a sad ending but great actors 10/10

I had avoided watching this film for quite few years - why? I had a couple of people that liked b-rated films the way I do and they told me this is a good film - watch it! I thought Oh no not another crappy b-rated horror film I only like certain ones! And the name Darko sounds like a worse than cheap b-rated film. Then more people told me to watch this film because I would love it. What is going on here I thought - why is so many people telling me that I would love this film? Well I finally broke down to watch the movie - I had no idea who played in it, nor did I know anything about the movie only that I would love it - so I had gone into watching the film thinking I would hate it. Well I ate my words and it didn't taste very well... the movie is Brilliant! And I do in-fact love this film! I thank everyone that told me to watch this movie! Yes Donnie Darko is a very dark, thrilling mystery film that will leave you days later pondering the film. It is well worth watching! ********Spoiler********* Time Travel - if you could go back in time, what would you change? Donnie Darko decided to go back in time to die - to save others from their deaths and any pain that Donnie himself may have caused others. The movie shows how one person can influence the lives of others. For example: If Gretchen Ross had not have met and gone out with Donnie then she would not have died that night. ************************ This is a film you may have to watch more than once to full get a grip on everything that is going on. I highly recommend this movie but be prepared to think during and after the movie - it is one of those types of films. 10/10

A user posted a picture of Frank on my wall the other day and it reminded me of how much I loved the teen-drama, psychological thriller, horror, and science-fiction that are all present in a movie you have to watch until the end. And it's definitely a movie that gets better and better every time you watch it. It has so many layers to it. There are a lot of things you may not pick up on, that just make the entire movie that much more incredible. And a lot of things that you don't even know are relevant until you reach the end. See this film. It will leave you speechless, and questioning just about everything. You really have to watch the deleted scenes with and without the commentary, as a lot of important scenes were cut from the film for lack of time.

Incredible film. A very mysterious and dark film. Deeply mind stretching and a little bit touching your emotional sides. Great acting from Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal, a very interesting film indeed. I give this one a @@@@ cheese.
