    What is the ending to Donnie Darko

    Has anyone seen the movie Donnie Darko? I would like to know what the ending is supposed to be as I was quite confused. My understanding is that he traveled to a tangent universe and saw what will occur in the future. He then chose to be killed by the engine dropping as it would then stop these events from occurring. It shows everyone he had an influence on at the end but i'm unsure as to whether they all traveled to the tangent universe or just him. I would also like to know how you interpreted the ending.

    It was the end of a paradox. The paradox being the rabbit man feeling guilty and warning Donnie of his supposed death. Throughout the movie you notice hints of future events, showing the events of the paradox being slightly remembered each time history repeats Until for some reason it goes back to normal. (I for one think its because they have enough hints to not instinctively carry it on anymore)
