Donnie Darko

Drama Sci-Fi Thriller


 

A bright teenager, who realises his experiences are bit weirder than most, is visited by a six-foot tall rabbit which suggests he indulge in destructive pranks.

A complex story that illustrates experiences beyond the routine and rational, this is a true psycho-drama, a story of alienation and detachment from reality. Sometimes it's hard to discern what is real and what is imagined, much like life from the perspective of the heavily medicated protagonist. The realism in the depiction of unusual thoughts and hallucinations is effective and compelling. This is an original and unsettling cult classic. Darko Darkness.
