The complexities of Richard Kelly’s seminal film Donnie Darko are as rich as the concept of time travel itself. When young Donnie escapes death (by a fallen plane engine in his bedroom), a sequence of events unfold that weave together people, events, time and space on a finite loop, all leading up to the inevitable conclusion that rectifies the world.

Portals, teenage angst, God, and hallucinations that include a giant bunny rabbit named Frank play out spectacularly in this new midnight movie cult classic. Basically, Donnie Darko takes the typical teen struggle genre to a whole new existential level complete with an incredible period soundtrack and ultra-creepy Patrick Swayze.
