Donnie Darko (15)
5 October 2012
Richard Kelly's stunning debut feature is a science fiction fable which pushed cinematic time travel into a whole new dimension. Its somnambulant teenage protagonist slips into a parallel universe, where a giant demonic rabbit called Frank proclaims that the end of the world is nigh. But then a falling jet engine destroys the sleepwalking Donnie's bedroom. Is Donnie sliding into paranoid schizophrenia, as his sympathetic female shrink seems to think? Or has the troubled teenager passed through a wormhole in the space/time continuum? This screening will be introduced by Aidan Moesby.
