5 out of 10 Fantastic x 1000000
Caroline from Laois, 24 Apr 2008
Fantastic. Just let it be and don't try to examine the film, it is super and one to buy and watch over. Introduction to Jake and his sister, both gathering speed in their own style but this is Jake's film, he never really has lived up to this since, maybe he just hasn't been given a decent role. Anyways, the film is well worth the watch, don't give up on it if you begin to think WTF, as I said, don't try to reason with it, just enjoy it for being so weird and wonderful. Love it.

5 out of 10 Donnie Darko
Gary from Dublin, 14 Jun 2007
The film is a cult classic. There is a lot of stars in this film that put in incredible performances including Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze in a surprise switch of roles of the norm for them. The background music for film goes well with the whole storyline. This film takes you back to 1988 and puts you through the mind of a misunderstood teenager with surprising results. Jake Gyllenhall's role as Donnie reminds us why he is such a good actor. Not to be missed

What's it about....
Writer-director Richard Kelly's bold debut film is a social satire, a dark comedy, a science fiction time-travelling fantasy, and a suburban nightmare about an extremely intelligent, depressive, self-destructive, narcoleptic, gun-toting, sex-crazed, teenaged arsonist: Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal). DONNIE DARKO is not your typical teen comedy. But, like GHOST WORLD and RUSHMORE, it uses the trappings of the teen comedy as the entry point for a subversive and trenchant (and...
