    Interesting movie with several readings. As with 2001: A Space Odissey, it is needed a reading of the actual explanation for the events to fully understand the original idea ... if you are interested in such explanation ...

    Kelly is a supple and courageous storyteller, boldly free-associating as he mixes parody and satire with earnest psychodrama and coming up with plot points no one could anticipate.

    Donnie Darko has plenty of problems. But most stem from a young filmmaker overswinging on his first time up to the plate and hitting a deep fly out rather than a home run.

    Shows plenty of promise, but it's somewhat self-involved and won't appeal to audiences who like a straightforward -- even if fantastical -- narrative.

    Excitingly original indie vision.

    A stunning technical accomplishment that virtually bursts with noise, ideas and references.

    First-time director-writer Richard Kelly draws on a number of intriguing elements ... without including a single, crucial gem that pulls everything together.

    If this movie ever figured out what it wanted to be when it grows up, it would be a terrific one.

    This set-up and development is fascinating, the payoff less so.

    It flutters, like a mischievous butterfly, above the despairing hands of easy description.

    Kelly is unable to give the movie the kind of pacing that would make us laugh and shock us simultaneously, because he's too infatuated with an aura of hand-me-down gloom.

    Donnie Darko may be too ambitious for a debut feature, but ambition and imagination still trump mediocrity any day of the week.

    Just another self-absorbed teen chronicle, with the added twist of a little time travel and a surprise ending.

    Name user

    A wondrous, moodily self-involved piece of work that employs X-Files magic realism to galvanize what might have been a routine tale of suburban teen angst.

    Despite its flaws, this is a compelling motion picture, and offers the kind of 'fresh' experience extended by the likes of Pi and The Sticky Fingers of Time.
