Donnie Darko is unique, captivating, and eminently discuss-able. We love it. Doesn't mean it doesn't have sins though!
Thursday: Sins in the air.
Remember, no movie is without sin. Which movie's sins should we count next?

6:10 why don't Americans use normal time? 19:00 is much better than 700.. who in their right mind would infer 700 means 7 o'clock.. 07:00 is 7am 19:00 is 7pm 700 is nothing but closer to 07:00 than anything else. Either put 7pm or 1900/19:00 because that's just nonsensical

You were wrong about one of those sins there buddy. Donnie's dad planned to wake up and chug that entire glass of milk before he realizes one of the rings on that cup isn't part of the design, leading to him spitting and gaging hystarically. No better way to wake up in my opinion. I'd call that a win!

part of me thinks the reason he's laughing at the beginning of the movie is because it's actually the end of the movie and he got sent back after sacrificing himself to reset time. like some kind of non-linear story telling and he's happy he survived. but there's also the possibility that i'm reading way too far into it and that he made the ultimate sacrifice to save everyone around him which is also fantastic.

I watched many movies way too young that should have traumatized me. This was the one and only movie that genuinely scared me, purely because of the rabbit. I first saw it when I was 7, and was scared of him for years, and then finally, when I was 12-14, I tried watching it again, but it still terrified me. I'm 20 now and haven't seen it since.

Thank you for pointing out how incredibly well directed that montage is. Probably one of my favourite movie scenes of all time.

(spoilers [duh]) for what it's worth, the director has stated cunningham winds up killing himself in the new primary universe at the end. I forget if it was from guilt or fear of getting caught or the buried memories he has of getting caught while still in the tangent universe, though.

Sin 11: drawing of eye by M.C. Escher. Very influential artist. If you check him out you will probably see that some of your favorite movies used work from him.

I admit I was utterly amazed and impressed with the comment about the southern Nashville car with all the decorations all year long. I grew up there and have since returned and see this on a near weekly basis. Now I gotta seek out CinemaSins for a job knowing just how local Jeremy is!

I was a little nervous when I clicked this. I love this movie and I thought you might have found some fatal flaws. I think this is one of the leaders for “sin removed” that I can remember. That song through the school moment is one of my all time emersive movie moments. I really dislike all the protagonist theories of this movie. Just takes away from how fun and powerful it is.

What I dont get about this movie iz why Darko was even out of his bed in the first time the engine fell in his room. If Frank spent the whole movie helping Darko to set things right, why did he qake him up to begin with?

Some people are actually angry that there is a version where everything is explained, yet they can still only watch the non-director's cut version. Those people are dipshits, just digging crap for the fun of it. Animals.

@Ayyüce Bahriye Tezcan why would the directors cut be used as an example to analyze? The theatrical is the known version that's held in high regard. But that wouldn't make for a click baity video

In director's cut version we can't see the Jim's house on screen. They removed that scene in director's cut version sooo

my parents organized a movie day for my birthday, and we went all to Donnie Darko on my 14th birthday back in 2001, im thankful that my parents choose this movie, instead of another Action block buster. This movie felt it had a good story, some quirky things, but overall a good movie for early teenagers.
