Just watched this and now feel I wish I hadn't started watching when I was feeling quiet tired, as I now feel I want to go back and watch it again!! Not at all what I expected!! Anyone else enjoy it?

No, no different film. Donnie Darko has a very young Jake Gyllenhall in it.

You cannot even attempt to explain Donnie Darko. You just have to watch it. I have to say I loved it. So much better the second time you see it as well, suddenly everything will (kind of) make sense. And I was really surprised at a few of the people who popped up in it. Patrick Swayze as a paedophile, anyone? shock

Great film. It's definitely one you feel like you have to watch several times because you notice more details and understand it more each time.

Donnie Brasco, I really liked.

Donnie Darko, it just didn't live up to the hype for me. But everyone else I know loved it. Having said that, it is very haunting at the end with the Mad World soundtrack.

Fantastic film - a modern classic!

Yes, Mad World and Head Over Heels in the same film - someone was a Tears For Fears fan!!

Loved Donnie Darko but agree that it is impossible to explain! Just watch it would be my advice. It's fantastic. I went to see it at the flicks and me and my hubby laughed our arses off at certain bits of it.

I noticed that on another thread Pad Dad and Retired Goth 2 recommended that people should watch the original cinema version.

They said the director's cut was far inferior.
