Suburbia is creepy. Creepier still when a plane engine falls from the sky and a shiny, silver rabbit named Frank visits and messes with your life whenever he feels like it. Sitting at a wormhole intersection of sci-fi, thriller and teen drama, Richard Kelly’s cult classic Donnie Darko still has us googling things like ‘tangent universe’, ‘living received’ and ‘PoTT’. It’s a trip – a great one – and Jake Gyllenhaal kills it as the druggy-eyed, grinning Donnie. Donnie rules.
