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

best mind-fuck EVER.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 1:58
No David Lynch? WHAT IN THE FUCK.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:05
*shrugs* Go make your own list, then.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:14
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, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:37
But just seriously, have you seen any of David Lynch's mindfuck films? if not, do so.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:39
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, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:52
Lost Highway? Wild at Heart? Inland Empire?
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 2:53
Nope. Nein. Negative.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 3:01
If you dig mindfuck films you should see em.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 3:18
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, 7 months ago at Jan 10 3:21
Seen Bug? That's a mindfuck film if there ever was one. Or Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 4:36
What about Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING?
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 4:48
There's a reason why this is MY list, not yours. Go make your own list.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 5:46
So you haven't seen Bug or The Holy Mountain? Great mindfuck flicks.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 6:13
I have not seen them, no.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 6:55
Great list =)
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 11:48
Awesome List! Spot On!

Maybe Eraserhead?
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 11:48
Maybe Watch The Fountain.... I Dont Know Whether It Fits Or Not....
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 10 11:49
I hated The Fountain, to be honest.
Haven't seen Eraserhead.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 11 0:55
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, 7 months ago at Jan 11 2:54
I have not seen all these films, but the ones I have seen listed here are certainly mind fuck.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 12 4:39
Great list
