Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko ★★★

So guess what - Donnie Darko is really, really confusing - but mostly in a fun and sort of campy way. I think when it's about Donnie being a teenager with teenager problems, who may also be facing mental illness, this movie is at its best. However, when it's about time travel and other sci fi elements (that are introduced early on, but really come to the forefront hard in the last half) the movie loses me a little bit.

I had fun with it though, and it was certainly due for a rewatch. It's incredibly quotable, still, and it's fun to see the Gyllenhaals in a movie together.
