We all love movies with a good content right? But what if instead of just good content you’re left mindfucked. Yep, there are movies with movie plots so twisted that it’ll leave you scratching your heads than a little longer than you expect!
Here are some of the Hollywood movies with movie plots so twisted that it’ll leave you mindfucked!
- 2001: A Space Odyssey.
One of the greatest revolutionary movies you’ll ever come across. This is the perfect blend of great content and acting and of course direction. Right from the quantum leap in the timeline of the plot, to the head scratching ending it’ll keep you glued to your seats.
2. The Shining.
Well, Stanley Kubrick is known to give movies that play with your brain. But the shining is one such movie that’ll really get on your nerves with its climax. It’s based loosely on the Stephen King novel and does a lot more than explain to what was going on around that time.
3. Vanilla Sky.
A remake of the Spanish movie Open Your Eyes, it stars Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. Though the movie is quite simple to understand but the constant leaping around between reality and dreamscapes is what makes the movie to uncertain.
4. Mr Nobody.
If you’re a patient movie buff, you’d definitely want to watch this movie over and over. Starring Jared Leto this movie consists of parallel plot lines and definitely one the best cinematography. As the last man on the planet in 2092, his experiences are really gripping.
5. The Double.
No relation to the José Saramago novel, this Jesse Eisenberg starrer is intriguing with its retro-futuresque setting, and the battle between what seems to be the protagonist’s overall-more qualified doppelganger. The Double is as hilarious as it is thought provoking, and Jesse Eisenberg’s performance with the double-roll is nail bitingly gripping.
6. Under The Skin.
This is one movie with such twisted movie plots that’ll leave you mindfucked for days. The Scarlett Johannson starrer movie, Under The Skin, has a fairly straight forward plot line. It is an amazing dive to the human psyche and has a lot of side plots left unanswered and open to viewer’s imagination.
7. The Butterfly Effect.
Fooling around with the time line never gets old. The Butterfly Effect follows the story of Evan Treborn (Ashton Kutcher), who somehow finds himself in a position to be able to alter life events from the past which consequentially repaint the future.
8. Enter The Void.
Enter The Void basically is one giant dimethyltryptamine trip. This clever and innovative movie is an explicit undertaking of the drug (DMT) and the experiences one witnesses during both, recreation and death.
9. American Psycho.
Okay, this movie got me freaked out a bit. Based on a true story, this satirical horror thriller based movie. Considered as one of Christian Bale’s most memorable performances, the movie is a horrific tale of a sociopathic serial killer living among the New York city’s elites.
10. Jacob’s Ladder.
This mystery drama tells the tale of Jacob Singer, played by Tim Robbins, a Vietnam war veteran suffering from what seems to be a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder. The movie showcases Jacob’s horrors as he tries to manoeuvre between reality and delusion.
11. No Country For Old Men.
For those who have seen the movie, they’re probably wondering why this one’s one the list. But up until the climax, which left audiences guessing what the plot eventually leads to. A bit of extra scrutiny required for this splendidly directed movie.
Now, this would’ve been a fun and easy movie if it weren’t for the heavy symbology and ambiguous nature of the plot. This flick is far from what it seems to be.
