not a movie, but if you haven’t ever watched The Twilight Zone series, you’re missing out on some great story lines and mind fucks

@kazi, Totally agree. And if we are venturing away from movies, Doctor Who is probably the greatest, most mind numbingly brilliant show ever.

Memento.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Revolver.

There are more… but these are on the top of my list of mindfuck.

@yoinkie, I agree. Doctor Who’s horror episodes are a true mindfuck. Fuck, I can’t look at angel statues anymore the same, gas masks too. I’m mindfucked.

Rubber. It’s the weirdest movie, but awesome at the same time.

Definitely Waking Life, it will get you thinking for sure and throws you off for a good mindfuck.

Waking Life (watched it three times, great philosophy)
Just a wide variety of philosophies

The Man From Earth (philosophical, intellectual movie)
The movie begins with Professor John Oldman packing his belongings onto his truck. He tells them he is immortal and all his colleagues try to disprove his story to no avail.

Contact (Made by Carl Sagan, Astrophysicist – Realistic alien movie)
Dr. Ellie Arroway, after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of intelligent aliens, who send plans for a mysterious machine.

I second all of the Darren Aronofsky films and ESPECIALLY Gummo. I’d like to add KIDS and Happiness to the list. They fit this category perfectly.

Memento and Inception are two of my most favorite movies. The way they are structured are amazing. They are the reason Christopher Nolan is my favorite director (Next being James Cameron and Tim Burton)

Requiem for a dream is not very mind-fuck, but I would recommend everyone to watch it. :)
And does anybody know where can I watch ,,A Clockwork Orange” online?

@asdfghjkl77,

I forgot… If you love mindfuck films, Twin Peaks ( the series, NOT the film ) is a must!

“Waking Life” for sure!!! Don’t forget Beautiful Mind and if you want something that can get hard to watch the whole thing through (6 seasons) watch “LOST” =P Yeah I know, I know. if you want start at season 4 and go from there but still.. you want a mind fuck nothing gets better.

Also “The Prestige” is a good one. Clockwork Orange is not a mindfucker to me its a political statement. Yellow Submarine is not a mindfucker but its a good one. And I have only found it on Netflix but the Movie “Ink” will fuck you up. “Lo” is another good indie mindbender (not a full on mindfucker though).
