While most movie protagonists teetering on the edge of madness are visited by figures such as Jesus or Elvis, in Donnie Darko Jake Gyllenhaal’s eponymous hero has visions of Frank, a scary-looking man in a rabbit suit. Frank tells him that the world is ending in a month and that Donnie can travel in time, and urges him to burn down his school and flood the home of a pederast motivational speaker. The complex narrative of the movie was further complicated when writer-director Richard Kelly released an extended version of the film which added 20 minutes and a further indulged his highly involved reasoning – included in the fictional book Philosophy of Time Travel – which explained the narrative’s internal logic.
