To celebrate the 15th anniversary of one of our favourite movies of all time, cult classic Donnie Darko, the British Film Institute is giving the movie a theatrical re-release after a gorgeous 4K remake.
Donnie Darko, directed by Richard Kelly, stars Jake Gyllenhaal as troubled high school student Donnie. Donnie is prone to sleepwalking and has an imaginary friend called Frank, a six-foot tall rabbit. Frank tells Donnie that world is going to end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds, in which time Donnie has to avoid death from a falling jet engine, maintain the space-time continuum and deal with teenage angst.
It’s one of the most enthralling stories we’ve ever come across and definitely pushes your perceptions to new territories. There may be plans to expand the remake to Global territories, but you kind of need to have a 4K Monitor/Screen in order to fully appreciate the sheer brilliance of it.
