Donnie Darko [UMD for PSP] starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone Amazon Might Have Wrong Listing Or Different Version This unclassifiable but stunningly original film obliterates the walls between teen comedy, science fiction, family drama, horror, and cultural satire--and remains wildly entertaining throughout. Jake Gyllenhaal (October Sky) stars as Donnie, a borderline-schizophrenic adolescent for whom there is no difference between the signs and wonders of reality (a plane crash that devastates his house) and hallucination (a man-sized, reptilian rabbit who talks to him). Obsessed with the science of time travel and acutely aware of the world around him, Donnie is isolated by his powers of analysis and the apocalyptic visions that no one else seems to share. The debut feature of writer-director Richard Kelly, Donnie Darko is a shattering, hypnotic work that sets its own terms and gambles--rightfully so, as it turns out--that a viewer will stay aboard for the full ride. --Tom Keogh As most people do, I think this is a great movie. I've seen it several times over the years, but decided to buy the blu ray version despite mostly bad reviews for the transfer. As far as why the movie itself is so great, it's unique, there's a lot to figure out, and many of the theoretical physics type of topics such as time travel are interesting to a lot of people anyway. The blu ray has both the theatrical release of the movie and the director's cut. Each of them explain what's going on in different ways really. The director's cut version explains a lot of things which the theatrical release leaves more open ended. It explains by showing the pages from the time travel book on the screen between some of the scenes. However, I personally like the ending of the theatrical version better. A lot of "helpful audio" is present at the end of the theatrical version, but not there in the director's cut. As far as it being on blu ray, I disagree with those saying not to buy it. Most places sell it for close to $10, including here on Amazon. The transfer seems BARELY better than the DVD version to me. However if you don't already own BOTH versions of this movie on dvd, why not spend $10 to get to have both on one disc and compare them back and forth? Then I still believe it has SLIGHTLY better picture quality also. So if you own BOTH versions of the movie on dvd I guess skip it. But otherwise it's easily worth the $10-$15. The movie itself is one of my favorites of all time. The director's cut mostly just adds in deleted scenes already on the original dvd abd then overlays those time travel book pages, but it also has different music, added audio, removed audio, a little more in way of deleted scenes, etc... It's different enough to be interesting to anyone who loves the movie. The music is better in certain places in the theatrical release though, so I still rate the theatrical as the better version.
