    Like gathering storm clouds, Donnie Darko creates an atmosphere of eerie calm and mounting menace -- stands as one of the most exceptional movies of 2001.

    Kelly, the 26-year-old writer-director of this excitingly original indie vision, shares more artistically with Wes Anderson or Paul Thomas Anderson than he does with Spielberg or John Hughes, but the point is, he's out on his own here. He swings big -- with flair.

    It is funny, sad and beautiful. And it's right on time.

    David Lynch lite.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Appealingly, the movie has a certain lightness -- like the aforementioned butterfly -- which makes its foreboding qualities surprisingly user-friendly.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A stunning technical accomplishment that virtually bursts with noise, ideas and references, but it's fundamentally a gracefully crafted movie that's about human beings and not images. Full Review
  • Jan Stuart

    If you let it be what it is, Donnie Darko will knock you flat.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Kelly is a supple and courageous storyteller, boldly free-associating as he mixes parody and satire with earnest psychodrama and coming up with plot points no one could anticipate.

    So much here is equally befuddling and beguiling; I caught myself leaning in toward the screen repeatedly, trying to somehow get closer to the gorgeous impenetrability of the story, of the boy.

    Its only constant is that it's strangely eloquent and quite original.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Most experienced filmmakers wouldn't even attempt a film that's so blackly funny, that so rapidly shifts genres and tone, and that layers late '80s cultural references so thickly, from "E.T." to Smurfs.

  • J. Hoberman

    Has plenty of problems. But most stem from a young filmmaker overswinging on his first time up to the plate and hitting a deep fly out rather than a home run.

  • Roger Ebert

    Donnie Darko is the one that got away. But it was fun trying to land it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The flaws are more than balanced out by the risks the earnest Kelly encourages his excellent cast to take.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bob Graham

    If this movie ever figured out what it wanted to be when it grows up, it would be a terrific one.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Chris Gore

    This is really one of those Rorschach test films. You either love it or hate it. For those who loved it, I have only one word: overrated.

  • A.O. Scott

    It's this compulsion to solder melancholy to weightlessness that constantly trips up the movie; Mr. Kelly doesn't have the assurance to pull off such a difficult feat.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Just another self-absorbed teen chronicle, with the added twist of a little time travel and a surprise ending.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    The nerviest, oddest, most outlandish and idiosyncratic American indie debut since "Buffalo 66," Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko defies description.
