When director Richard Kelly set about making “Donnie Darko,” he wanted to create a sci-fi dark comedy that captured suburban dread, teen angst and some big philosophical questions — while co-starring a bunny demon as the anti-hero. “I thought, â€?I’m going to write exactly the movie I want to see,'” Kelly says in “The Mind of the Modern Moviemaker.” “‘If no one else likes it, fuck ’em.’” The movie more or less flopped at the box office, but soon, Frank costumes started popping up on Halloween and the 1980s soundtrack gave new life to the song “Mad World” as folks “discovered” the movie in the years that followed.

Part Time Punks’ Michael Stock moderates a pre-screening Q&A with Kelly and James Duval, who played Frank the bunny.
