The predecessor to this list of Mind-Bending feature films showcased some good mind-numbing and quasi-discomposing stories from some great filmmakers. While you relished the previous list, I felt we should explore different aspects that make up a mind blowing moment. From, the 'what did I just watch' to the 'why did I just watch this', here's a renewed thought-blender list I compiled for you yet again. also i would recommend to check the previous list if you haven't.
Caution may contain spoilers.
1. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Eyes Wide Shut is an erotic thriller adapted from Arthur Schnitzler's 1926 novel ,Traumnovelle. The film exhibits Kubrick's amazing blend of direction and cinematography set in the midst of a fantastic reality of bizarre people and their equally bizarre rituals. It's safe to say that this film falls under the 'weird' category or mind blowing.
2. The Machinist (2004)
The Machinist is most recognizable for Christian Bale's unforgettable performance as an insomniac having trouble gauging his sanity. This film deserves your attention for its dark performances and amazing direction.
