I want to watch a truly mind bending movie. Something that will blow me away. Preferably dark, with a lot of concepts that rely on a deeper understanding or comprehension than what you get at face value.
One of those movies that really sticks with you after watching, and alters the way you view and see things.
I suggest Battlestar Galatica
if you're not in it for the long haul then I suggest Dread (2009) Thriller/Horror
I also suggest City of Ember but keep in mind that's all they know.
Zero theorem, Paprika, irreversible, cloud atlas, the anime Serial experiments lain,
seriously, ignore all of these people with their millions of generic suggestions of 'pi' and 'donnie darko'.
you're a fucking faggot
back to you OP, watch 'enter the void'. it's shit but it's something you'll never see again and it'll stay with you forever.
Don't call /thread on yourself. /thread is a compliment. That's like giving yourself the best post of the day award.
My two recommendations that haven't been mentioned are The Fountain and I Heart Huckabees.
I have the perfect movie for you, it's called Triangle. It's about time loop and mind fuck, you should like it. starts slow but gets really cool.
I'm not kidding either.
Already seen enter the void. watched it while on acid and a hefty amount of MXE. That was a fucking ride.
Currently no drugs. Is it one of those movies where you can put yourself in the headspace, or is it too far out?
ignore everything this man suggests
solid suggestions. gg
original or nic cage?
Its made by the guy who did Primer, but it makes you feel in all sorts of ways
Do not watch the trailer, its an abomination to the move.
Inception fits the bill since there are a few subtleties regarding what "really" happened, but it is much more full of straightforward stuff to warrant being considered for this I think.
Yes, but I don't find it in the category im looking for. Not quite enough mind fuck or dark aspects to it. Love the trilogy though, definitely sticks in the back of your mind.
well then you deserve me saying 'ma nigga' with a denzel image macro, but i cba looking on my hdd for it.
you a fan of monty python? i'm not going to suggest monty python, i just need to know if you're accepting even 1% of their material, then i'll give you a film that you will embrace like a new child
I lol'd. Also pic related. Its what you are.
One more time in case you missed it. NAKED. Deep, dark, main char is a nihilistic serial rapist.
THE TREE OF LIFE
Granted, it's not so "mysterious," but I'll put it like this:
After some kid dies, his mother looks up to heaven and says to God "Where were you?! Did you know?"
Immediately after which the following takes place:
I'm always baffled that in these threads it seems you're lucky if anyone suggests Eraserhead, and it gets buried and ignored
Eraserhead's depths are inaccessible, like music. You can attempt to analyze it, find meaning with great effort, and it will still be overshadowed by the experience itself. It is a fever dream of slow, creeping dread.
its just fuckin weird. theres violence and tits and crazy farfetched stories and its just fuckin weird. i cant really describe it. its animated. its like if disney became a rebellious teen but not the faggy hot topic kind. the leather jackets and alcohol and good music kind
OP, you want to watch Jacob's Ladder.
WATCH FUCKING JACOB'S LADDER.
careful on those edges anon.
>not really "blow away the viewer" potential though
only movie i watched with 2 endings and the viewer is able to choose which one to belive
Movie you're looking for is probably Mulholland Drive. Dense and dark.
Also movie called Enter The Void was pretty mind blowing. There's a long and short version, but it relies a bit more on face value.
There will be blood hasn't been mentioned and there is a lot that goes on in that movie and it's dark as fuck.
Shit you beat me to it nigr..
Yah Mulholland Drive is what pops up in my head to someone who is looking for a very puzzling movie. Got me so confused in the beginning it made me so uncomfortable I almost stopped watching.
No, boring because it's an over rated piece of shit that doesn't require careful thought to grasp and the same boring shit scenes play over and over and over and the average pretentious asshole such as yourself claims to be enlightened by it because they think they're a genius and claims everyone else who doesn't like it is of 'those living a bovine existance'.
forgot to mention it's not that dark.
Primer also rekt my mind but not dark. it's extremely white but still good.
The Snowtown Murders
Based on true events, 16 year-old Jamie falls in with his mother's new boyfriend and his crowd of self-appointed neighborhood watchmen, a relationship that leads to a spree of torture and murder.
It will stay with you, but the art style can be a hit or miss with some
I give it for this movie being original but also minus points for being fuckin predictable. I figured it out as a joke and it ended up being true. Cool and lame at the same time. Which reminded me of Moon. Ok but predictable. Hmmm...Dark city is good. Matrix kinda ripped off some of this movie. The unholy if you can find it. Brazil is bretty good as mentioned as is paprika and perfect blue. Psycho pass and the ghost on the shell series are pretty good.
