Donnie Darko

 (2001)

Donnie Darko Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Some may think that Donnie Darko is a typical maladjusted teenager. Actually, Donnie is a borderline delusional intelligent, depressive, self-destructive, narcoleptic, gun-toting, sex- crazed, teenaged arsonist, beset by visions of a monstrous rabbit which is trying to keep him under its sinister influence. Prompted by this apparition, Donnie commits antisocial acts while he is undergoing psychotherapy, surviving the vagaries of high-school life and romance, and fortuitously escaping a bizarre death from a falling jet engine. Donnie battles his demons, literally and figuratively, in a series of intertwining story lines that play with time travel, fundamentalist gurus, fate, predestination and the machinations of the universe.

For more about Donnie Darko and the Donnie Darko Blu-ray release, see Donnie Darko Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Donnie Darko Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Just to reiterate, there have been no improvements made to the film's picture quality, as the Blu-ray disc included here is identical to the one released in 2009. Those of you who own that version know that the 1080p/AVC encode is serviceable but far from ideal, partially because the fairly low-budget source material was never exactly bursting with color and clarity to begin with, but also because two full versions of the film--one running in excess of two hours--are crammed onto a single 50 GB disc. The film could probably use a new remaster, but even simply re-encoding the most recent remasters of both cuts at a higher rate and placing them on separate discs would almost certainly yield some improvements. As it stands, the image is quite soft throughout--truly fine detail is only visible in the tightest closeups--and while there is an increase in clarity over prior DVD releases, it's not incredibly drastic. The picture is also somewhat dim, with a low level of brightness overall and colors that seem slightly faded. This is compounded with black levels that often harshly crush shadow detail--sometimes even in daylight scenes--and wilted contrast. Grain looks natural and untouched by excessive DNR, but the picture often takes on a noisy quality. How much of this can be attributed to compression is hard to say, but I'm sure the film could look less muddled and spongy with a more data-intensive encode.


Donnie Darko Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

On the other hand, Donnie Darko's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track leaves little room for improvement. Dialogue is the key element of the mix--as it should be--but the film also features some great multi-channel sound design. There's the thunderous unexpected crack of splintering wood as the jet engine plows into Donnie's bedroom, water rushing from the surrounds when the school is flooded, and a variety of impressionistic whooshing sounds relating to wormholes and Frank's appearance, but the track also makes good use of quieter sounds, like neighborhood ambience. Of course, the film has a killer soundtrack of 1980s hits from the likes of Tears for Fears, Joy Division, and Echo and the Bunnymen, and the music sounds fantastic, spread throughout the soundfield with fullness, dynamic depth, and warmth. Vocals sound a bit low during the big party scenes-- although, this is to be expected--but otherwise, dialogue is always clean and easily understood. The disc includes a French dub in Dolby Digital 2.0 (Theatrical Version only), as well as optional English SDH, Spanish, and French (Director's Cut only) subtitle tracks.
