The last line of the film after the final credits says it all.

Is reality what we think it is? Or is it merely staged?

Further suggestions to increase this list are very welcome.

I love Dark City and Donnie Darko,excellent choices. Also Usual Suspects and Truman Show are very good. There are a couple on the list that I haven't heard of before, but a good list.

Love this list! I think that Moon and Inception would both go pretty well here. If you're going for older films too, Steppenwolf is pretty alternate-reality as well.
Posted: 7 years, 1 month ago at Sep 9 18:51
sleepless101, I shall look out for those films you mentioned, and thanks for the suggestion. You are quite right bwt Inception, that will get an immediate "add". Both coasternut and sleepless101, thank you both for your comments.

Storm (2005) is a great underrated Swedish film. I'm not sure why I'm so fond of this movie... oh subjective reality and emotionally dark... yep that would do it ;)
Posted: 7 years, 1 month ago at Sep 12 20:26
Thanx, jaytoast, for the suggestion of Storm. I am unaware of this film (and I love Swedish films!) so I gotta check it out.

An excellent list. I need to check out some of these. Good work.
