Donnie Darko

I don't understand this movie. It's really good, and it's completely fascinating. I watched it last night, and I watched it again today because I feel like there's something in it that's just beyond my grasp. At first it seems simple. Before I saw it, I had heard it's about a disturbed teen being controlled by a sadistic 6-foot-tall rabbit a la Harvey. But the movie is so much more than that. There's some things I can't even begin to think about and explain. There's time travel stuff, and alternate universes. There's a lot of philosophy in the movie. I don't even know how to explain how I think about it.

This is a movie that confuses me and makes me think, but that I still actually enjoy.
