Donnie Darko (2001)

Donnie Darko: Questions still unsolved — Written by cahmaran on 09.01.2010

"Donnie Darko" is a movie that certainly divides opinions. Some will love it and some will hate it, but it's almost impossible to be indifferent to it. You travel through the mind of Donnie, where you can find a giant rabbit that keeps telling him the world is going to end, where time travel is a real possibility and other dimensions exist for sure. I got so excited about the turnings on the events of the plot that in some point I even forgot the awkwardness of a part of an inexistent plane falling over his bedroom or the dialog about Smurfete that seem to lead us nowhere. The point is that the movie has too many characters and subjects, but none of them is forgotten during the film. The laid back school system, the drama of the first love, the mistery about the rabbit and the supposed end of the world. All this subjects are equally showed in the plot. None of this elements, however, prepares us to the final turning in the events. The ending provides us an incredible surprise, which turns "Donnie Darko" into a classic of the science fiction, at least in my opinion. It also raises questions about the meaning of the whole story that nobody ever completely deciphered. Donnie Darko is like a piece of art and can only be admired by its entireness. It's one of the big misteries of the story of the cinema, guaranting its place side by side with Keyser Söze from "The Usual Suspects" and Dr. Malcolm Crowe form "The Sixth Sense", with the difference that the extent of the meaning of this story hasn't been totally comprehended yet.
