Rabbit Season

Or "Rabbits in Film". From the innocent and fluffy (Thumper) to the enigmatic and menacing (Frank from "Donnie Darko"); from smart and sassy (Bugs) to weird and wonderful (Rabbit ears boy in "Gummo"!) - the humble bunny has been in our movie psyche since the first one popped out of the first movie magician's hat. The humble bunny has reflected man's inhumanity to man ("Watership Down"), symbolised his innocence, pure and tainted ("Harvey", "Sexy Beast"), and just given us a few good laughs along the way ("Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Raising Arizona"). Lest we forget their valuable and long-eared contribution to movie magic. Pictured: One freaky rabbit in "Donnie Darko".
