Anyone see this movie? I really loved it because of the complexity and how bizarre and unexpected everything that happens is. It reminds me of the twilight zone series or those "cube" movies. Anyway, my problem is I understand like 3/4 of the movie... but starting at one distinct point is where I lose the meaning. I've watched the part over and over but still can't get it. Can anyone fill me in on what really happens starting with... you know towards the end on Halloween I believe, when Donnie goes to the old ladys house, to ask her some questions about time travel..? Well, when he goes in the two kids that were bothering his gf in the beginning are there and they hold knives to the neck of each of them. First off, why were the two moron guys at the old ladies house to begin with? Then a fight ensues, and a car pulls up with the guy in the clown mask, who happens to be his friend I believe.. now, the other guy is wearing the "evil rabbit" suit.. but here's the thing - it was a regular guy underneath the suit... so what was the "evil rabbit" all along anyway, was it that guy, or still an illusion? If not, why does he happen to have that same suit? What are donnie's true motivations at lighting that guys house on fire and breaking the pipe? It seems to me he didn't even realize what he had done until it was over,but I can't tell. And if his meds are supposed to work why does he still trip out right after taking them (a few times, I think)? lastly, the ending... what the hell happens here? It seems like the family (not donnie) went through the time portal, therefore, how did he end up at the beginning again?
Maybe this was just one of those movies that wasn't supposed to make complete sense (or maybe i'm an idiot)
Thanks for any insight you have
