“A haunted miasma of youthful alienation, suburban malaise, cosmic upheaval and 1980s pop-cultural infatuation, writer/director Richard Kelly’s captivatingly strange 2001 debut plays more than ever like its own suspended-in-time artifact.” — Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Richard Kelly’s strangely hypnotic and un-categorizable cult classic, which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, obliterates the lines between teen comedy, science fiction, family drama, horror and cultural satire – and remains wildly entertaining throughout.  Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Donnie, a borderline-schizophrenic teenager for who there is no difference between the signs and wonders of reality and hallucination.  Obsessed with the science of time travel and acutely aware of the world around him, Donnie is isolated by his unnerving powers of analysis and the apocalyptic visions that no one else seems to share.   Co-starring Jena Malone, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore and Patrick Swayze, and featuring an evocative soundtrack of ‘80s pop classics, Donnie Darko, presented here in its original theatrical cut, is a truly original work that does what few films can – create a wholly unique movie universe that can be re-visited time and time again. (Dir. by Richard Kelly, 2001, USA, 113 mins., Rated R)
