Richard Kelly?s debut feature, DONNIE DARKO, is an unclassifiable piece of work in the best possible way. Centered around a disturbed teen who has visions of both the apocalypse and a human-size rabbit who provokes him to commit crimes, this is the kind of film that very few filmmakers could successfully execute. In the hands of Richard Kelly, though, it is a deliciously engrossing trip down the rabbit hole with the filmmaker never losing a grip on his twisty, idiosyncratic vision. A cult classic that has grown in esteem since its release, DONNIE DARKO dares its viewers to resist consistently rewatching it.
