Name as many psychological/mind-fuck movies as you can. I would appreciate it. I need as many as possible.
A very cool psychological scifi/action story about a young man who’s pretty much sick of life. Until one day he meets a strange girl and reluctantly ends up on a quest for a treasure that’s somehow related to him. This is a very good movie, I strongly recommend it.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1054606/
Dr Parnassus is running a travelling show where they take people into their minds, but things aren’t as good as they seem. An old friend of the doctor visits to claim what belongs to him. It’s a very weird story, with one character being played by four different actors, but it’s a good film.
Enter the Void http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1191111/
A teenage boy observes the events following his death, mostly it revolves around his sister and their memories. It’s not a typical linear story, that’s part of what makes it interesting.
A man gets locked up and has his mind tinkered with, for seemingly no reason, so he attempts to find out who did it and why. The story gets weirder and weirder, and so does the backstory.
Sucker punch http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0978764/
A young girl called Baby Doll is framed with the murder of her sister, and her step father (the actual killer, who abused both the girls) has her sent to an insane asylum so nobody will find out. But it turns out it’s no ordinary madhouse, it’s just a front. The story follows the girl in her delusional alternate realities, where she goes to escape the horrible reality.
Oh, and pay attention to the very unsettling message by the narrator at the beginning and ending of the last one. I think that was the most unsettling part of the whole story.
Went out and bought a bunch of these… so far 0-1. Watched Mulholland Dr and it was awful. Hope the rest are better. Up next, Event Horizon.
@yoinkie, It just seemed like it was trying too hard to be weird for the sake of being weird. It sacrificed plot and dialogue to make it strange. But I’ll give it that, it was strange, albeit intentionally confusing. I didn’t feel as though my mind was fucked because I never really had a clue as to what was going on. I had nothing to grasp to that it could eventually be twisted. I think they just tried to make it as fucked up as possible and then fly it under the banner of ‘art house’ so that nobody questions it. But that’s just my interpretation, clearly a lot of people like it.
@ty94, Nice! It really is an amazing movie. Even after having watched it about 7 or 8 times, I went and read a detailed plot summary, and I still learned new things. I then had to go watch it again to pick up on the new things I had learned. Now I just watch it to fully enjoy it’s awesomeness.
