Donnie Darko review

Film description

In a Nutshell: 

The end of the world is nigh, at least for a troubled young man and a giant bunny rabbit.



Dark. Darker. Darko.


'Donnie Darko? What the hell kind of name is that? It's like some sort of superhero or something.'

'I’ll tell you what he said! He asked me to forcibly insert the lifeline exercise card into my anus!'

'Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion.'


A troubled young man, medicated but with genius-level IQ starts to have worrying premonitions of the end of the world.

A jet engine’s just fallen on his house, he’s verbally abusing his teachers and what’s more there’s a huge rabbit appearing in his bathroom.

Any normal person might be seeking help, but Donnie is anything but normal.

He’s only got 28 days to save the world so to speak and the bunny’s telling him what to do and when to do it.

“They made me do it,” is about to become Donnie’s mantra.
