Named 'Film of the Year 2002' by Total film and The Face magazines, here's another chance to catch this cult classic. Donnie is a high school student with a sardonic but likeable attitude, whose scores are 'intimidating', and who occasionally and alarmingly forgets to take his medication. He receives warnings in his visions of a giant rabbit and narrowly escapes death from a falling jet engine. His world becomes increasingly bizarre as he tries to find out what life is and how it works. Film 2002 summed up many viewers' reactions to this genre-defying film in calling it ''the most refreshing and original movie I've seen in years''.
