Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) not a hero. He is quite an ordinary guy living in a small town with my family: mom, dad and two sisters. But it appears that and it has its special feature: it is crazy taking psychotropic drugs in huge quantities. To Donnie periodically comes a being in the form of a rabbit, referred to as Frank (James Duval), always somewhere to its calling.

The one night it turns out that calls Frank justified: it again calling Donny and while he lunatic for field course on the family home of Darko out of nowhere falls the turbine of the plane, directly in Donnie's room.

This same night, Frank tells Donnie that 28 days 6 hours and 42 minutes 12 seconds the world is gonna end, but to comment on this is refused. But entrusted him with several important tasks — for example, flood the school or set fire to the house local writer. And Donnie obeys, because Frank is just so are not will be...

A very unusual movie. Despite that in "Donnie Darko" there are references and quotes from many films, among which is full of youth thrillers and horror movies, this is not parody youth thrillers and horror movies. On the contrary, it is very serious, somber and even depressing movie made, however, with a very Mature level of skill that is hard to expect from the young Director-debutant.

What is this movie? About his youthful fears about the habitual cruelty of the world, that the world still have to save. And about the sacrifice. Want to save the world — you make the victim. There are no other options.

The actors in the film picked up quite well. Jake Gyllenhaal played very well in the eyes of the guy, despite the entire lethargy, detachment and constant immersion in their own fears and phobias, the idea is visible very well. Like drew Barrymore in the role of the teacher of literature. Pleased with the sudden appearance of Patrick Swayze. Frank, appearing in the Bunny suit, at all its grotesquely absolutely not looks ridiculous; on the contrary, he is very scary, because he says terrible things.

But the main compliments are still the creators of the film. Set picture is very interesting, bright, and main — original. Absolutely amazing to find music, great camera work, and artists.

And most importantly — diversity! The film is very multi-layered, multi-genre, and here as the the case when the variety of genres is subordinated to the overall goal and does not look chaotic jumble. He, first, knows what he want a second, able to Express their thoughts and Express their feelings.

To sum up. It is a very strong, unusual and original film. It may like or not like it, but indifferent to "Donnie Darko" to be impossible.

Dmy friend Darko is the film is absolutely devoid of any stamps or whatever any was stereotyped. Moreover, it is difficult even to distinguish the genre of this film, there are scary moments, there are some psychedelism, there is tragedy, there is science fiction, and all wrapped wrapper history are related to the category of troubled Teens in transition to adulthood.

The only analogue film may be perhaps the butterfly Effect, but if there we were discovered the end of almost all card, here the Director doesn't so and willingly reveals the whole truth. After all, Donnie Darko is a whole universe of heroes and anti-heroes, it is very easy to get confused and just not understand than movie. You never guess that will be on, because the world of Donnie Darko another.

This world is something reminiscent of the stories of Stephen king, something of the history of the x-files, but know us waiting in the end is simply impossible. At very well that Director has become more complicated and we will see it is a finished product, without any dots.

What as for the Donnie Darko, it to me this hero came soul. He is smart, he it's like the only one who sees the truth for what it is. At this Donnie is not a goodie. And throughout the film, the attitude to Donnie is constantly changing, then he's like would good, the main villain.

Movie that should make you at least think about it, but the iconic masterpiece of his lacks some generality. In the Beginning, there was also a very intricate plot, but there is podano was somewhat different. The only slight downside of the picture is the total lack of atmosphere, the wholeness of what is happening. Then we are afraid of how in a horror movie, then tell about at time. But in the interest of what is happening is not effect.

Briefly about the plot. CA (but it is there and only there is purple sunsets). 1988. Life shizofrennika and paranoid Donnie Darko disturbed sleepwalking and constant hallucinations. Once, at the time of the next attack, he went outside to talk with imaginary friend Frank. In this is the time to his house in the room where have to sleep Donny, falls turbine aircraft...

Interestingly, Frank (which is the six-foot rabbit) so not said that is also the notorious "end of the world". Ask his friends what they think about the Apocalypse. Right come and ask, "how looks like end of the world". I assure you that in addition to aeeania haakana you nothing intelligible is not hear (so I advise you to buy a beer the one who still something to say — this person is really smart). In any case, the end of the world still come, but it was rather Marksovskiy, and not biblical. The film ends with a very sad — I felt sorry for everyone who did not live up to the captions.

Liked the school where learn the main hero. I of course scared at first, expecting a story like "the lame guy of the school — the first beauty school — the most famous guy of the school", but everything is better. The plot is built on the scheme "teacher-hysterical — a young teacher-trainee — spineless Director". The character of the hysteric the sea deserves all praise — played so well that she (character and not the actress) I want to break face. By the way, I have noticed that the most hysterical women are working or in school or in guardianship, and they are always red children — the movie "Donnie Darko" fully corroborate my guess.

The soundtrack was "Duran Duran", "The Church", "Joy Division" — simply put, the soundtrack was a success. About the translation will say nothing, so he does not hold water.

The plot of the movie is a wild mixture of phobias, manias, Freni, existentialism and the space-time of Einstein's theory (if any of course), so children up to 18 better not to watch (especially in the tape no no female nudity). See also be sure all fans of "Jacket", "the butterfly Effect", fans of psychological films, fans of drew Barrymore, and just who does not mind spending 109 minutes not the most spectacular movie.
