Metacritic

88

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.

Immensely moving and strikingly original, Kelly's story of a brilliant, disturbed teen (Jake Gyllenhaal) drowning in the cultural morass of the 1980s now feels bloated.

Obsessives will be familiar with the new material (almost all available on the original DVD), which elaborates on the time-travel metaphysics and tightens the emotional screws. Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) shares one additional tender exchange with each family member
