Donnie Darko Doesn’t Get It

Even the actors aren’t sure what the film means, exactly. Jake Gyllenhaal, who played Donnie Darko, has said, “I wish … people could spend a day with me sometime. So they could sit at a meal, or walk down the street when a total stranger walks up and starts a philosophical discussion about what exactly ‘Donnie Darko’ is about. “It makes my day every time. Because every time, I answer, ‘I have no idea, what does it mean to you?'”
