Good list, even though I couldn't get into Brazil.

best mind-fuck EVER.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 19:58
No David Lynch? WHAT IN THE FUCK.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:05
*shrugs* Go make your own list, then.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:14
I like a good mind-fuck now and again.
Quality pics (minus The Sixth Sense). Where is the love for Shutter Island this "awards season"? Great film.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:37
But just seriously, have you seen any of David Lynch's mindfuck films? if not, do so.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:39
I love The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet, neither of which are truly mind-fucks, are they?

Mulholland Drive was a mind-fuck, but I wasn't crazy about it.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:52
Lost Highway? Wild at Heart? Inland Empire?
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 20:53
Nope. Nein. Negative.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 21:01
If you dig mindfuck films you should see em.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 21:18
Those movies are just dream-like and surrounded around the crazy state of dreams. That's all. Not really mind-fuck worthy. Sure, they are nonlinear storytelling marvels in some cases but your mind shouldn't be getting fucked, just tricked a bit here and there.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 21:21
Seen Bug? That's a mindfuck film if there ever was one. Or Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 22:36
What about Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING?
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 22:48
There's a reason why this is MY list, not yours. Go make your own list.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 9 23:46
So you haven't seen Bug or The Holy Mountain? Great mindfuck flicks.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 0:13
I have not seen them, no.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 0:55
Great list =)
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 5:48
Awesome List! Spot On!

Maybe Eraserhead?
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 5:48
Maybe Watch The Fountain.... I Dont Know Whether It Fits Or Not....
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 5:49
I hated The Fountain, to be honest.
Haven't seen Eraserhead.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 18:55
Haha 'Eraserhead', are you serious? Another Lynch suggestion? Haha. In case you were wondering, my comments from yesterday were about the Lynch suggestions that guy keeps bugging you about, not yours. I don't want you to think I was ridiculing your choices.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 10 20:54
I have not seen all these films, but the ones I have seen listed here are certainly mind fuck.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 11 22:39
Great list
