Slide 9: Donnie Darko (2001)
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.
