I have seen this a couple of times on DVD. I do like the soundtrack and I found that watching this again I think it holds up really well. I would say settle in and assume you are one of the time travelers.

While I enjoyed this movie for various reasons I would recommend that anyone interested in recreational movie (mind candy) watching go to IMDB first to get the low down so you are prepared. For movie buffs this is a movie that is a unique outing in the creative world. Not for everyone.

It's OK, not a horror movie.

Finally got to check this film out...except for one chaotic and confusing scene near the end, I wouldn't change a thing about this film. Reminded me a bit of "Twin Peaks" with the tone and mood of the film. Jake Gyllenhaal was incredible in the lead role. I really dug the soundtrack also. ...Read more

After watching the film I had plenty of questions. Luckily there are numerous websites (especially YouTube) that help to explain what happened....Primary Universe, Tangent Universe, Insurance Trap, Time Artifacts. Although at its' core, the film is simply a love story. Donnie realizes that he ...Read more

A mishmash; what happens when businessmen, script writers and a vague concept get put into a blender, and told to aim at an audience age of 16-24.

I love this film but this couldn't be a more accurate description.

To really understand this movie google Donnie Darko Tangent Universe the website .org uk explains very well.

Engaging enough. What surprised me was the all-star cast. Familiar faces popped up throughout the film. And one great song.

I was shocked to see that even Seth Rogen had a small role in the film!

you are definitely missing a lot of it. trying actually paying attention.

Ok, Donald. We get that you've acquired all the secret knowledge on Tangent Universe. It's not necessary though for one to comment on the movie without gleaning all of that "knowledge." You do know that Kelly is FAR from the first artist of any kind to frame an esoteric idea around their art, ...Read more

An okay film.. Fairly straight forward in the point or idea it is trying to get across. This direct approach towards trying to prove it ultimately is what hurts the film the most never allowing it provoke real thoughts or questions about the topic it focuses on.

I COMPLETELY DISAGREE. This movie is what happens when you take BUSINESS PEOPLE and ARTISTIC PEOPLE put them in the same room with no plan, just ideas. What's the fr*cking point of this movie? I asked myself that question at least forty times while it was playing and I was cleaning my bow. I ...Read more

Love this movie. Such a cult classic.

I absolutely love the enigmatic nature of Donnie Darko. It makes his character and story so interesting and compelling.

Admittedly, I was a late bloomer to watching Donnie Darko. A twisted tale of causality and fate, I loved two things most about this cult classic: Jake Gyllenhaal's superb acting (the mental derailment of his character is magnificently portrayed) and the movie theater scene - the ominous music ...Read more

Frustrating, as it could be an excellent movie if it focused on fate more and spent less time telling the audience how to feel. Still entertaining, just sad to see a movie unexpectedly raise interesting questions while not bothering to explore them, and instead waste time treading water ...Read more

if you're still confused watch the extended version of the movie. There is a lot more detail and explanation for many of the concepts that are difficult.

I liked it so much, I'd rewatch it if Kanopy got the Director's cut.

I don't get why so many people think this movie is so deep and powerful. I did not find in particularly thought-provoking or compelling, just weird in a superficial, self-absorbed manner. Makes gestures towards its 80s setting by including a couple of political references and some ...Read more

The film isn't meant to provoke the 80s. It's about Donnie learning to see the beauty in the world (Gretchen) so that he can overcome his fear of dying alone, thereby empowering him to accept his death by the plane engine.

wow you really think you got it all figured out?

Hmm...that just seems silly....the universe doesn't usually care if you "accept" your death (regardless of means) or not. You get what you get. As far as the 80s go... I guess I agree with you that the film did not seem to make (much) effort to evoke the period, but then the question is why ...Read more
