Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko ★★★½

Donnie Darko still 100% stands up today. It’s dark, haunting and funny all in decent measure. You can see why this film achieves its cult status. It’s weird, plays around with time and ambiguous. Some films struggle to pull this off but for me at least Double D excecutes it well. Maybe sometimes it’s a bit too edgy, a bit too anarchistic but I can forgive it for that mostly. Gyllenhaal was bound to be a star after his performance in this, creepy and disturbed teen talking to a demented bunny creature? Yes please!
