Donnie Darko: Blu Ray Review
Donnie Darko Ultimate 2 Disc Blu Ray collection
Released by Madman
So another release for the excellent Donnie Darko - this time on Blu Ray Disc
and with a heap of extras.
One disc has the original cut of the film and the second has the director's
cut - for those who've not seen the film which had a breakthrough performance
from Jake Gyllenhaal and a career best from Patrick Swayze, you really need to
take a look.
Gyllenhaal is Donnie Darko, a troubled teen who becomes delusional and
paranoid that the world will end in 28 days. But that's not the half of it -
when he starts seeing a large rabbit his actions become more irrational as the
end of the world nears.
Donnie Darko was director Richard Kelly's debut and what a scorching film to
have graced celluloid - dark, moody and magnificent mixing scifi, horror and
time travel, it still remains one of the best films ever. The transfer to Blu
Ray gives it a superior look and really, you should take the time to view it -
if only to see what the fuss is all about.
Extras: Commentaries, two cuts of the film, galleries,
additional scenes - there's a lot to get your teeth into here.
