(director) & Naomi Foner (screenwriter)
Brother of
Maggie Gyllenhaal
Donnie Darko (2001) [Donnie Darko]: Crushed to death when an airplane engine falls through the roof of his bedroom, after he manipulates time to prevent the "tangent universe" from occurring. (Thanks to Tamara, Toria, and Rebecca)

The Good Girl (2002) [Tom 'Holden' Worther]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by shooting himself during a stand-off with police at his hotel room; we learn of his death afterwards on a TV news report, and his body is shown lying on the bed afterwards. (Thanks to Tamara, Toria, and Rebecca)

Brokeback Mountain (2005) [Jack Twist]: Either accidentally killed when a tire explodes while he's changing it (the scenario reported by Anne Hathaway) or beaten to death with a tire iron by a group of men (the scenario visualized by Heath Ledger). It's suggested that Anne's explanation is a lie, but it's also possible that her report is accurate and that Heath is imagining a different reason for Jake's death. (Thanks to Toria, Sheena, Jack, and Robert)
