Genre: Thriller/Drama/Science-Fiction

Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhall) is an average high school student who suffers from Schizophrenia and starts seeing delusions about a six foot tall ugly look bunny rabbit. In the movies very beginning, the rabbit tells him the countdown to the worlds end. The countdown serves as the movie backdrop right till the very end. The rabbit apparently tells him to do stuff like sleep-walk out of his house, burst the school water pipe and burn down a house. Donnie starts studying and learning about time travel and gets further delusions in which he is able to look a couple of seconds into the future and determine peoples movement. The rest of the story progresses about his illness and comes to a very abrupt end. On a personal level, I never really liked or understood such deep psychological movies which have no definite end to it. The movie is very hard to accept and definitely not the type everyone and anyone would like to watch.

Rating: 6.2/10
