Goofs

  • When Donnie finds the 1911-style pistol in the closet the hammer is not cocked and the safety is on. It is impossible to engage the safety on a 1911-style unless the hammer is cocked. And there is a screw or pin visible in the rear left side of the slide which does not exist in a real 1911.

Metacritic

100

The director's cut of this 2001 cult fantasy is a deliriously subtle exploration of storytelling possibilities, and a deliciously wry teen-pic to boot. Brilliant.

With 20 additional minutes of screen time, the director's cut of Richard Kelly's genre-splicing Donnie Darko offers new viewers a second chance to discover his mind-bending masterwork.
