Idat 307: Donnie Darko – The Watery Ooze Scene

Mike asked us to think of a film, which looks and plays with time.  Straight away I thought of Donnie Darko as the whole o the film is based on the philosophy of time and what time travel leads up to.

The main part of the film I was thinking of which matches this module the most is, the watery ooze scene.  Donnie (the main character) see a beam appear out of his chest and that of his family, which shows their future path.  Donnie himself even though unaware of his next move, is being shown where he is heading, with portrays that his future thoughts have already been made.

The scene is embedded below

The idea of time travel does interest me, however I don’t think I will take if further within this module.
