227. Donnie Darko (2001)
Dear Roberta Sparrow, I have reached the end of your book and... there are so many things that I need to ask you. Sometimes I'm afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I'm afraid that you'll tell me that this is not a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to.
A movie that is at once entertaining, mind-bending, and serves as a solid philosophy lesson is a rare treat. If you are into '80s music, time travel, teenage angst, or just like evil-looking bunnies, then boy have I got the film for you!
