DONNIE DARKO, Richard Kellys disturbing 2001 indie cult about teen angst, time tripping and a giant demonic rabbit, hit a little too close to home with its eerie 9/11 parallels. Plus its confusing, elliptical narrative polarized moviegoers. Still, this 88 treatise on urban legends starring Jake Gyllenhaal became an instant one itself, prompting further elaboration in this expanded cut. Released theatrically last year and released on DVD Feb. 15, 2005, DONNIE DARKO: DIRECTORS CUT (Fox Home Ent., $26.98) offers more than 20 minutes of additional footage, mainly surrounding Grandma Deaths PHILOSOPHY OF TIME TRAVEL excerpts.
