Donnie Darko

This Richard Kelly film certainly has earned it's stripes as a cult classic and remains a work of great import even if it doesn't hold up as well over time as it should. It's odd, not even ten years old and it already looks dated and I've yet to put my finger on why. This aside DONNIE DARKO is a dark and twisted offering sure to resonate with those in their late teens. Jake Gyllenhaal is perfectly cast as our young victim/protagonist and the support cast around him is nothing to sneeze at with Drew Barrymore and Patrick Swayze doing some impressive work and this marks the big screen debut of another now ubder-star Seth Rogen. The oft quoted line "Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit? Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?" pretty much delivers the message of the film which seems to get lost and boggled down by the whole time travel issue. Either way, it deserves at least one look and many will want it in their collection.
