The ultimate modern day cult classic, “Donnie Darko” tells the story of a troubled teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal) who narrowly escapes death, and proceeds to grapple with metaphysical phenomenon and a hallucinatory bunny. Thanks to the film’s mind-bending premise, there are many theories as to what it all means. A subsequent director’s cut provided more questions and frustrations than it did answers.
