What’s a mindfuck? A movie that plays with your mind, confuses you, and leads you on. It’s not just a movie with a twist ending. Mindfucks are borderline-incoherent, dreamlike, and surreal.

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them, into the impossible.”
       ― Arthur C. Clarke

A collection of science fiction movies and television shows that attempt some degree of scientific accuracy, with technologies or scenarios that may be nonexistent in today's world but are at least realistic (if only theoretical). That is to say, they don't rely on magic or fantasy (or anything that departs significantly from mainstream theory) to propel their plot.

This is not to say that some of the line-up here don't take a few speculative leaps, but they at least begin from a place grounded in credible research and theory, from where they then develop their more extravagant premises.

Yes, listing time travel films here is a cheat, but I've only included a few, and only those that make some attempt to explain their paradoxes and/or take their temporal consequences seriously.

“Now you're looking for the secret. But you won't find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.”
       ― John Cutter, 'The Prestige' (2006)

Great films with poignant, memorable, Shyamalanesque, or downright traumatic endings.

“I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.”
       ― Umberto Eco, Foucault's Pendulum (2007)

What makes our lives worth living? Does free will exist? Is morality just a convenient charade? What is the nature of the human condition? Is God dead, as Friedrich Nietzsche said, or is He just really good at playing Hide & Seek?

The following films ask the "big questions", or are generally concerned with how to live one's life, believing that philosophical and psychological inquiry can help.
