This powerfully affecting science-fiction meditation on parallel universes, time travel and paranoid schizophrenia is a stunningly crafted and hypnotic fantasy drama that opens up intriguing new genre avenues. Completely unclassifiable, director Richard Kelly's intellectually demanding look at surreal destiny has a potent style, dark charm and strange tone all its own. Donnie (a haunting Jake Gyllenhaal) is an introverted student in therapy who keeps having visions of a 6ft-tall rabbit named Frank that tells him the end of the world is imminent and forces him to commit acts of vandalism while sleepwalking. It's during one of Donnie's somnambulistic bouts that a jet engine crashes through the roof of the Darko home, sparking a series of even weirder events. This cosmic parable is part teen-alienation saga, part social satire, with cult appeal stamped over every unpredictable and profoundly wrought frame.
A disturbed teenager is thrown into turmoil when he is plagued by visions of a sinister giant rabbit. The mysterious figure convinces him the world is about to end and urges him to commit wanton acts of destruction in the community. Fantasy drama, starring Jake Gyllenhaal alongside real-life sister Maggie. With Jena Malone, Patrick Swayze, Drew Barrymore and Noah Wyle.
