A rabbit-headed figure, Frank, informs American teen Donnie Darko that the world is coming to an end. School hysteria is also proving to be dangerously life-threatening.
Although this feature debut is a little lighter and less artfully obscure than David Lynch's best work, Donnie Darko is nevertheless a mini-masterpiece that marks the arrival of brave new talents in Gyllenhaal and Kelly. Cult glory beckons.
