good list
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Apr 29 22:35
Great list.
Secret window would also fit in.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Apr 30 0:38
Ohh yeah! Pretty much agree with all of those.
What about One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, The Silence Of The Lambs, Teeth, Cannibal Holocaust, The Human Centipede and Black Swan?
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at May 5 2:40
great mindfuck list ;)
i think you can add "Big fish" too

Great List

Lucky Number Slevin? A twist ending does not make it a mindfuck movie. also, @SJMJ91, the only thing you listed that comes close to mindfuck is Black Swan. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and The Silence Of The Lambs - movies about crazy people. Fairly straightforward and linear, nothing shocking. Teeth, Cannibal Holocaust and The Human Centipede - Fucked Up, not mindfucks.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 12 3:46
Excellent
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 17 5:07
basically a list of Lynch, Kubrick, Arnofsky, Gilliam, Nolan films. Where's Von Treer's Europa and Antichrist, plus Gaspar Noe's Irreversilbe or Enter the Void.
P.S. You should get the films name right "The Pier" is called "La Jetee", no one knows it as the pier. TROOLOLOLOLALALALA

Agree with ecstasyd above. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these type of movies. And I love this list for two reasons:
1. Primer - the movie is brilliant yet so underrated so it's nice to see someone actually know and acknowledging the movie.
2. David Lynch - two of my most fave movies from my fave director, Mulholland Drive and Blue Velvet, appear on this list it makes me smile. =)

MARTYRS!!!! My fav foreign horror!!! And I don't care for asian horror either!! Just do yourself a favor and see it!!!! Other then that you get an A+ in my book for this list!!!

have you ever seen Mr. Nobody?
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 11 5:36
Awesome list!
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 22 8:17
Great selection!

Probably the most complete list about this genre. Well Done!
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 22 8:26
Good stuff, my man.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 8 11:36
A good list. Vanilla Sky should be included.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 16 9:17
IRREVERSIBLE is a great mind fuck movie.
Also INTO THE VOID.
They are both from the same Director Gaspard Noe.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 16 15:46
really nice list!
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 9 0:35
Fabulous. We're hoping our newest film will do honor to the mind fuck list! [Link removed - login to see]

It's very strange to not post original 'Solaris' by Andrei Tarkovsky, which is masterpiece, and post very bad adaption of film by steven soderbergh.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jan 2 19:58
I'm surprised, you got Paprika but left off Perfect Blue. Sunshine would go great here too.
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Jan 23 21:06
great list!
Posted: 2 years ago at Apr 1 11:05
Dude you got your stuff way wrong...you probably a film buff but you got it coming when you put movies such as American Beauty. Cypher, Revolver and Slevin in the same list as Kubrick and Lynch. Work your stuff out.
Some are artists, others are mere filmmakers.
Some produce philosophy, others merely entertain.

Creating or promoting a certain Philosophy through the narrative of cinema is not necessarily a mindfuck. A mere twist in the ending is not necessarily a mindfuck.

Good for you keep watching movies, but all in all a very unconvincing list.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 4 16:56
Nice list ,Also try
little neglected ones - King of the Ants (2003),
The Man from Earth (2007)

Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 8 22:36

Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Jul 29 15:13
Spider Forest (Asian Lynch-ian horror rime flick) is my suggestion

and I second Perfect Blue
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 2 12:57
Nice list, but you've missed a masterpiece of the kind : Eleven fourteen (2003), among a couple of others.

Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Nov 11 13:52
Great list, add The Holy Mountain and El Topo (Alejandro Jodorowsky)and In the Mouth of Madness (John Carpenter).
