    If you’ve never seen it, then it is well worth a punt for £3.

    I enjoyed it but it may not appeal to all tastes.

    The Prism version is available everywhere for around that price though... I believe the RRP is £4.99 (it's a barebones re-release). HMV were trying to shift them for 99p a while back.

    It is a rather odd film but well worth the effort. Does fit into the Hollywood mould which is why, I guess, the critics panned it but the punters loved it. Slow burner in the sales. Go for it

    I found the Director's Cut of Donnie Darko to be much better that the Theatrical release. It just makes sense with no external reading :D It's easily worth the couple quid extra!

    Whatever you do, if you see the normal version and love it, don't consider the special edition PLEASE!

    The music changes wreck the opening sequence, even though that's what the director wanted originally.

    A little background reading never hurt, but your head might!

    Got to say that I much preferred the theatrical cut of Donnie Darko - I own both versions - and agree with Slimchandi about the music changes.

    I really don't mind doing a little work myself when watching a film and sometimes it's more interesting not to have everything spelled out for you (although I admit that even the Dir Cut of Darko isn't exactly your average straightforward Hollywood movie - whatever that is!?).

    I agree. When I watched the movie the 1st time, and 'didn't get it'. I found the official website (http://www.donniedarko.com) and found that just as entertaining. This finally answered my questions about the movie, and left me with many more :confused: :D

    This way, I feel, was far more enjoyable than having the movie spell it out for me.
