So I watched this movie for the first time today, and I have some questions. I’m putting an LJ cut in here because you shouldn’t read my thoughts if you haven’t seen the movie; I’m sure to spoil something.
But why the hell did Frank the Rabbit bring him out of bed in the first place? Why did the alternate universe need to be created at all? Frank’s purpose is to get Donnie to destroy the tangent universe, but Frank’s responsible for the tangent universe being created in the first place. And why does Donnie see the rabbit before the tangent universe is created? Have I missed something?
And also, what’s with the shrink? Donnie’s last session with her totally confused me. Does she know what’s really happening? Why had she been giving him placebos this whole time when he’s had previous episodes with mental illness? And why does she just let him go?
