Product description

I WANT YOU TO WATCH THE MOVIE SCREEN. THERES SOMETHING I WANT TO SHOW YOU. Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science fiction, Spielbergian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template and the high-water mark with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 06 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Franks maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum. Described by its director as The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves. 4K ULTRA HD BLU-RAY LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS New 4K restorations of both the Theatrical Cut and the Directors Cut from the original camera negatives by Arrow Films, supervised and approved by director Richard Kelly and cinematographer Steven Poster 4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray presentations of both cuts in Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) Original DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing 100-page hardcover book featuring writing by Nathan Rabin, Anton Bitel and Jamie Graham, an in-depth interview with Richard Kelly, an introduction by Jake Gyllenhaal and contemporary coverage, illustrated with original stills and promotional materials Double-sided fold-out poster featuring newly commissioned artwork by Luke Preece Six double-sided collectors postcards Limited Edition packaging with reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Luke Preece DISC 1 THE THEATRICAL CUT [4K UHD BLU-RAY] Audio commentary by writer-director Richard Kelly and actor Jake Gyllenhaal Audio commentary by Kelly, producer Sean McKittrick and actors Drew Barrymore, Jena Malone, Beth Grant, Mary McDonnell, Holmes Osborne, Katharine Ross and James Duval Deus ex Machina: The Philosophy of Donnie Darko, a documentary by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures on the making of Donnie Darko, containing interviews with writer-director Richard Kelly, producer Sean McKittrick, cinematographer Steven Poster, editor Sam Bauer, composer Michael Edwards, costume designer April Ferry, production designer Alec Hammond and actor James Duval The Goodbye Place, Kellys 1996 short film, which anticipates some of the themes and ideas of his feature films 20 deleted and alternate scenes with optional commentary by Kelly Trailer DISC 2 THE DIRECTORS CUT [4K UHD BLU-RAY] Audio commentary by Kelly and filmmaker Kevin Smith The Donnie Darko Production Diary, an archival documentary charting the films production, with optional commentary by cinematographer Steven Poster Archive interviews with Kelly, actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, James Duval, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many more Three archive featurettes: They Made Me Do It, They Made Me Do It Too and #1 Fan: A Darkomentary Storyboard comparisons B-roll footage Cunning Visions infomercials Music video: Mad World by Gary Jules Galleries Directors Cut trailer

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 April 2021
This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves. This is the (hopefully) definitive version of the classic 2001 film from director Richard Kelly which has been treated to the customary deluxe treatment from Arrow. This 2-disc set includes the theatrical and director’s cuts along with a host of extras, a poster and stills postcards. Also includes is a 100-page hardback book which features new writing on the film and an intro by Jake Gyllenhall.

PLOT
———-
In an affluent US suburb in October, 1988, Donnie Darko, played by Jake Gyllenhall, a rebellious but intelligent misfit teen who has been diagnosed with mental illness, is lured from his bedroom by a phantom wearing a metal-masked rabbit costume. The rabbit, called "Frank," tells him the world will end in 28 days. Meanwhile, a shattering series of events disrupt Donnie's already-unsteady world. A plane engine falls out of nowhere onto his house, a sympathetic English teacher (Drew Barrymore) is punished for her choice of literature in her class, a youth-mentoring positive-thinking guru (Patrick Swayze) brainwashes the community, visions of wormlike appendages emerge from people's chests, and a neighborhood crazy lady turns out to be an ex-nun scientist who researched time-travel and metaphysical cause-effect paradoxes. More menacing visits from "Frank" the rabbit lead to a Halloween night revelation, and Donnie realizing his pivotal role in this weird, interconnected web of destiny. Pretty simple plot, really.

REVIEW - FILM/EXTRAS/PACKAGE
———————————————————
From one of the greatest openings ever committed to celluloid, to the apocalyptic ending, “Donnie Darko” was embraced as a genuinely oddball "cult" item almost instantly upon its unsuccessful theatrical release. Like most cult movies, Donnie Darko works well on numerous levels -- as a brainy piece of science-fiction, an ominous psychological thriller, a satire on suburban values, or a tragic drama of a doomed young rebel. If it has a mark against it, it’s that it goes a little overboard in making adults (especially teachers) look stupid compared with the unstable but intellectually brilliant Donnie, well played by Gyllenhaal as a guy who can be likeable, sympathetic, and scary all at once.
Although Donnie -- sometimes in a trance-state, sometimes consciously, commits vandalism and lashes out, he's sufficiently intelligent to see the eerie time-warp pattern behind all the odd goings-on. And he's heroic enough to make a Christ-like sacrifice at the end, for the good of everyone else, when the "end of the world" comes. Though it's possible he never had a choice. But by making their hero a classic underdog teen trying to come to grips with society, rather than an adult, the filmmakers created an unrivalled “tragi-comic-coming-of-age-giant-skull-faced-rabbit-horror-time-travel drama”.
Jake Gyllenhall has never bettered or even matched this role, and there can be no dispute that the film was Patrick Swayze’s finest hour. Maggie Gyllenhall and Drew Barrymore provide excellent support and the soundtrack is, of course, the stuff of legend.

Pick of the extras includes an audio commentary by writer-director Richard Kelly and actor Jake Gyllenhaal, “Deus ex Machina: The Philosophy of Donnie Darko”, a documentary by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures on the making of “Donnie Darko”, containing interviews with Richard Kelly and various cast & crew, and “The Goodbye Place”, Richard Kelly’s 1996 short film, which anticipates some of the themes and ideas of his feature films. Also included are the obligatory deleted and alternate scenes (20!) with director commentary, trailers, galleries, the classic “Mad World” music video etc.

Picture and sound quality are exemplary as you’d expect, with a stunning 4K restoration from the original camera negatives. If you have the equipment (the discs will only play on a compatible 4K UHD Blu-ray player) then these discs will really show it off to the utmost.

As to the limited edition set itself, whilst most people won’t be greatly turned on by the poster and postcards, (although they *are* double-sided) and will probably only look at them once, the 100-page hardback book is worth the asking price alone in my opinion, as it’s well-produced and includes new analyses of the film, interviews and archive images. The slipcase is chunky and looks much more expensive than it is. Arrow never skimp on the aesthetic presentation of their releases and DD is no different. On the downside, the set only includes 4K UHD Blu-rays and no standard Blu-ray Discs, (but I suppose that would’ve defeated the object of such a high-quality restoration) so you will need a 4K UHD player to watch the discs in this set.

In my humble opinion, if you’re a fan of the film or a serious movie collector (and you have the necessary equipment to play it) then this is the definitive version of a classic film with the extras and presentation adding long-term value.

Thanks for reading!
