    What movies totally fucked your mind? Like movies that confused you, movies that you had to watch more than once to understand, movies that are dreamlike, surreal, wierd, mental and utterly crazy?

    Mine are:

    - Mullholland Drive
    - Memento
    - A Clockwork Orange
    - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    - Donnie Darko
    - Lost Highway
    - Blue Velvet
    - Eyes Wide Shut

    ...what are your top movie mindfucks?... icon_biggrin.gif

    Brazil.

    SuckerPunch.

    Liquid Sky? I forget the name, but it's about a tiny ufo that follows this chick around and kills everyone she has sex with in order to extract orgasm chemicals that it uses for fuel. Ha, it sounds funny when I condense it down like that icon_razz.gif

    12 Monkeys

    The Lathe of Heaven

    FIGHT CLUB.

    Then, Sucker Punch.

    Probably one of the few who saw it, but eventually I figured it out.

    I. Loved. It.

    It's similar to "Chicago" in terms of quality and an "alternate reality/viewpoint" which I LOVED as well.

    I saw Chicago about a month before Sucker Punch, so I should probably get out more.

    Please don't anyone say "The Sixth Sense".
    I don't want to overstate this but...that was a half-baked piece of tripe.

    As IF Bruce Willis' character wouldn't realize he's dead 'til the end.
    Maybe the stimulating conversation with the boy's mother would be a clue.
    (or the conversation he had with ANYBODY).
    Sex with the wife must have been kinda tame, too, since she couldn't see or feel him....hey maybe she always just laid there like a gunny sack - THAT's why he didnt' think anything was wrong.
    [insert sound of gagging here]

    At least it was comical....like a loser magician who obviously pulls a card from his sleeve and then takes a bow.

    Donnie Darko. Each Donnie Darko. Still Donnie Darko.

    First time I'm like am I the only one on the planet that gets
    this? Was this written especially with me in mind? This is
    insanely familiar to me and its freakin me out, dudes! And
    you serious, guys, none of you follow?! Whoah! Awesome!

    Then it ends.

    And I'm all WTF?!
    And then I gotta watch it again.
    And another time.
    And everytime time its playing.
    I don't care to "get it" whatsoever anymore.
    I just wanna remember what I thought I was
    understanding and relating to that first time!!!

    Have yourselves a brilliant weekend, gentlemen.

    Pink Floyd The Wall

    Apocalypse Now

    What the Bleep Do We Know

    I actually sat through Eraserhead three times. "Brilliant?" well, just because it makes no fucking sense doesn't mean it's a great piece of cinema. But I did enjoy watching the reaction of all the first-timers in the crowd.

    Zentropa, directed by Lars Von Trier (the European title is Europa), a surrealistic film about an underground Nazi movement in postwar Germany. The Nazis are nicknamed "werewolves"; they may or may not actually be werewolves. Very dreamlike. Weird ass shit.

    Here are a couple that scared the crap out of me as a kid:

    The Haunting. Particularly the scene where the chick is in bed and something is trying to get in the door. If that door had opened, I would have shit myself then and there.

    The Cyclops. Ultra low budget crap about a deformed giant in Mexico. Watching it years later, I realized what disturbed me so much as a kid was that the Cyclops's moans and groans had a distinct sexual quality to them. More recently, I learned that the big guy was voiced by none other than Paul Frees - the voice of Boris Badenov on Bullwinkle (!)

    The Birds. Just flat out scared me silly.

    Primer: you will have to watch it at least 5 times to just start getting it.
    Pi
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    The Fountain
    Evangelion: not a movie, but really deep layered.

    for "movies that are dreamlike, surreal"
    how about: .
    Waking Life directed by Richard Linklater.
    Explores the question: "Are we sleep-walking through our waking state or wake-walking through our dreams?"

    Lincsbear said'The Navigator'.
    'Last year in Marienbad'.
    Both are surreal,the second especially so!


    L'année dernière à Marienbad... Omg that movie was FUCKED UP!!! Just the repetition in it, and the weird flash-back style montage.

    Next to that would be "Hiroshima mon amour"

    By far, hands down, the biggest one for me was not a scripted movie, but a documentary called talhotblond.

    Watching this film, I thought I knew what was going on. But no. My chin hit the floor and stayed there for about five minutes. You'll not believe the mindfuck in this film.
