What the community says about Donnie Darko
- "The best mind-bending movies make you go what the fuck. They make you feel like you just took some drugs. You don't understand what's going on but then you kind of do. You second guess yourself multiple times and wonder if a movie like this can exist. I want to see mind bending movies like that and this is a great link to movies like those. "
- "This is a film with a concept that is unique and stands out on it's own. The child and imaginary friend is the base but it expands into much more interesting concepts. Has a good mix of deep plot and adventure and action. It does start slow, so some may not consider finishing it as first, but I promised that it is worth sticking with."
- "Donnie Darko is definitely a disturbing movie, that's for sure and not up for debate. But I'd keep it off my list of the most disturbing because the genre keeps this from being over the top scary and disturbing like one a realistic one that it is set in present day might."
- "I enjoy this film very much. Not only does it have a compelling story but often times there can be certain details that can be missed on the first viewing, encouraging you to look a little closer the next time you watch it. Certain times you may think to yourself where Donnie's reality ends and where actual reality begins. Is what he's seeing actually there? Is he sick? Are they just illusions? Its a great watch. "

- "Donnie Darko is a twisty weird and wacky film that I have watched like 4 times already and I am not sure I fully understand it yet. It is honestly weird that I'm not sure how to describe it even if I try. It is like requiem for a dream though since it has a similar hopelessly dark feel to it."
- "DON'T WATCH S. DARKO!!! Watch the original Donnie Darko instead! Unlike the forced sequel, Donnie Darko handled well the concept of time travel and parallel universe. A good sci-fi film doesn't need any ultra-futuristic setup or plot. Donnie Darko is an example of a good sci-fi film with an excellent ending that you must see personally!"
