GALLOWAY: Did you expect Donnie Darko to be like this when you were shooting it? Or did you think it was going to be a different kind of film?

GYLLENHAAL: I thought — I mean, I was 19, I thought it was going to be the best movie ever made. [LAUGHTER] And everyone was going to see it and it was just going to be incredible. And then nobody saw it and it didn't get bought at Sundance. And it was a really great experience. Humbling. And then it's since found its way.

GALLOWAY: Do you understand what's going on in the film?


GALLOWAY: If you go to the web, as you know, there are websites devoted to Donnie Darko and the Tangent Universe.

GYLLENHAAL: There are websites?

GALLOWAY: Oh, absolutely —

GYLLENHAAL: Oh, wow, oh.

GALLOWAY: — regularly updated, that explain the Tangent Universe, that explain the concept of time travel.

GYLLENHAAL: [LAUGHS] I don’t understand. That’s a real waste of time.

GALLOWAY: You said, “I don't understand it.” So I wondered if that had changed.

GYLLENHAAL: I do. I mean, we started the conversation starting about abstraction, and about why I connect to material and for what reason. Often times it's really hard for me to articulate why I connect to something. But I know exactly what that movie's about. I can't define it; it doesn't tie up in a perfect bow. But it's about adolescence. It's about what it feels like — this isn't meant as a criticism, but like things I didn't relate to, which were high school movies. Where I'd watch it and I'd be like, “Well, am I like the kid that nobody likes? Or am I like the person who everybody [likes]?” I couldn't [tell]. I was like quantifying, putting me in a box. “This is my personality at that age” and “I'm this kind of person” just felt like bull**** to me. And to me Donnie Darko was about adolescence. And about how, as soon as you start to grow up and you sort of move out into the world, you realize everything is so trippy. That anything can be anything. And that's equal amounts exciting as it is frightening. And that you can make a connection, but the connection can be with a rabbit, and a man in a suit. And that you can see things and people can think you're crazy, but you're actually not. I think that's what that movie is to me. And there are all these ideas that Richard threw in there — Stephen Hawking's ideas and things like that.
