Are you guys ready to have your minds blown? Okay, no? Of course, not literally, but I’m pretty sure that with this mind f*%^$ movies, your brain cells would be very alive and kicking once you watch ‘em. So, let’s get on with the list, shall we?
Being John Malkovich (1999)
Everything about this movie is quite, if I may say it bluntly, effed up. Try working on the 7 and a half-th floor and maybe you’d figure out that something is seriously wrong with your office. Also, try going through a door and ending up inside John Malkovich’s head, right into his subconscious.
Now, that’s one weird movie.
Donnie Darko (2001)
First up is one of the movies that gave me a fever, an actual fever. If you’re ready for that, then go forth. Donnie Darko will take you to places you’ve never seen before. Watch this movie if you also wanna see a young Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Freaky. I know.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
One of the best movies of all time (in my opinion, at least) is truly a circus of emotions and dreams. This movie is effed up in a romantic way. Those are the simplest words to describe this complicated film. Don’t be intimidated by it, though, ‘cause the stories pretty interesting and you’d be able to watch Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood and Kirsten Dunst at the same time.
That one’s truly a masterpiece by Michel Gondry.
First of all, Guy Pearce is GORGEOUS. That’s a definite fact. Second, Christopher Nolan knows what he’s doing when he says he’s gonna mess with your mind. He always, always, always does. Have we not learned from Inception yet? If you want more mind games that you can possibly imagine, and in reverse, watch Memento. You’ll be thinking about your so-called trust issues from a whole new level with this film.
Fight Club (1999)
If you haven’t watched Fight Club, you basically suck. In fact, I was only able to watch this movie last year so I’ve pretty much sucked all my life until I watched this cinematic masterpiece. I’m a girl who’s fangirling about Fight Club, so that’s kind of a big deal.
Chuck Pahlaniuk, the author of the book, is a mad genius and this film is the reflection of that awesomeness rolled in an hour and so of pure mind blowing excellence.
These aren’t exactly the movies you’d wanna watch over and over again but they are definitely worth every minute of your time.
