Im still missing one of my personal best ones: Mr. Nobody. http://trakt.tv/movie/mr-nobody-2009

loading replies

Lucky Number Slevin is a good movie. And it has cool unexpected twist at the end, but to say that it is a mind fuck is a little too far.

Thanks for adding the movies I suggested. I just watched another movie which I think belong here :

http://trakt.tv/movie/predestination-2014

It is one hell of a mindfuck, if I may.

loading replies

Birdman should be on this list.

loading replies

Awesome list man!Can't wait to get through these. Should add http://trakt.tv/movie/tekkonkinkreet-2006

loading replies

I suggest adding "Interstate 60".

BTW, awesome idea, awesome list.

loading replies

I'm surprised to see this one not on the list: http://trakt.tv/movie/children-of-men-2006
There is so much to analyze in the story, film making, philosophical concepts, and allegorical criticism of our present day.

THANK YOU for all the kind compliments & the contribution!!!

This list is made by you & made for you!

Just adding in here that I loved the list. Had 90% of the movies, but went ahead and started scouting a few from it. Thanks for taking the time to put the list together!

Oculus has a mindfuck feeling to it http://trakt.tv/movie/oculus-2014

loading replies

Looks like I need to get into a few more of these. Nice list.

loading replies

Awesome list, thanks for sharing, @BenFranklin.

http://trakt.tv/movie/the-usual-suspects-1995 is my alltime favorite!

loading replies

@BenFranklin, I have a couple more nominations, though I'm not a hundred percent sure they qualify as mind-fucks (someone help me here): Exam (http://trakt.tv/movie/exam-2009); and The Tall Man (http://trakt.tv/movie/the-tall-man-2012)

loading replies

a lot of Tom Cruise here :)))

loading replies

Nice list @BenFranklin. Well done sir.

loading replies

I love mindfuck movies and tv shows, they are my favorite.

My favorite tv show is lost, and my favorite move is the prestige.

loading replies

Hi @BenFranklin, think "Primal Fear", should be in the list...
http://trakt.tv/movie/primal-fear-1996

loading replies

I approve of this list =)

loading replies

Great tks to the awesome list! make me view movies i have losted... (sorry for the english)

loading replies

Hey man, I'm going through this whole list chronologically, and I don't understand why "Breakdown" is in this list. There's no mindfuck in it.

loading replies

I recommend The Awakening. (new and am still learning how to link...) It wasn't the greatest movie in the world, but I certainly didn't figure it out until it became obvious.

loading replies

+1 to Midnight in Paris and Oblivion

loading replies

Ok, Ben... seen "Changeling" and cant understand why is it on this list :p

loading replies

Thanks for adding. I thought about it for a while now. And I remembered watching http://trakt.tv/movie/irreversible-2002 in 2002 and thinking afterward what a surreal twist of emotions I witnessed.

loading replies

oooh what a great list. Will definitely watch those I haven't watched so far.
One of the greatest mindfucks for me will always be (and which isn't on the list):
http://trakt.tv/movie/stay-2005

loading replies

Maybe I can suggest (maybe they qualify)

  • Man on the Moon (1999)
  • Stranger Than Fiction (2006)
  • The Science of Sleep (2006)
  • Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001)
  • Midnight in Paris (2011)
  • Oblivion (2013)

Great list, Reminded me of som great movies a nd introduced to the ones I have never heard of. Like the category. :)

loading replies

"Minority Report" & "Deja vù" = added.
"The Prestige" is on the list since day 1 ;D

loading replies

Hi there, great list! I'd surely add The Prestige :)

http://trakt.tv/movie/the-prestige-2006

loading replies

Solid list. Like Paprika, Perfect Blue is a Satoshi Kon movie and fully belongs in this list.
http://trakt.tv/movie/perfect-blue-1997

loading replies

It's a great list, I think you can add thoses two more :

http://trakt.tv/movie/minority-report-2002

http://trakt.tv/movie/deja-vu-2006

                                      Very good work by the way

I was disappointed to not see Brazil on here, since it's nothing short of mind-blowing. So I'll just go ahead and second @rocko_2006 's vote for it. It's a little bit "1984" with a smattering of Monty Python humour and whole lot of what the hell just happened.

loading replies

Added.
Again, haven't seen it (^_^)

loading replies

@vishal8492 funny i came down here to comment that it should be in the list @BenFranklin check it out, it was the reason I watched The Illusionist. http://trakt.tv/movie/primer-2004

loading replies

Where is Primer ?
It's definitely deserves spot.

loading replies

Oops, just saw that you had Memento already in there. My bad.

loading replies

What about Memento?

Not sure if you need both Total Recall movies as well as Open Your Eyes and Vanilla Sky in the list. Both original movies are the superior choices.

loading replies

I haven't seen them, but I added them all for you ;)
Thanks guys!

loading replies

@dineth, yeah I agree, 'Trance' is a good one: http://trakt.tv/movie/trance-2013

loading replies

You have Along Came a Spider on the list, why not add the two other Alex Cross movies as well: Kiss the Girls (http://trakt.tv/movie/kiss-the-girls-1997) and Alex Cross (http://trakt.tv/movie/alex-cross-2012)?

loading replies

I think you missed out Trance.

loading replies

Great list!
A couple more to add:
http://trakt.tv/movie/high-tension-2003

Quite heavy, not for the faint of hearth:
http://trakt.tv/movie/martyrs-2008

loading replies

Bone Collector.....Bone Collector..... hmmmm?
Yeah, I think it deserves to be on this list (maybe even more then some others ;] )
Thanks, pal!

loading replies

Great list! I'm missing The Bone Collector, don't you agree?

http://trakt.tv/movie/the-bone-collector-1999

loading replies

Great list!

Triangle, mentioned by sp1ti, really deserves a place on this list, IMHO
http://trakt.tv/movie/triangle-2009

loading replies

Great list mate.

loading replies

To be honest... I am not so sure about "Changeling" let me know what you think after you've watched it.

Enter the void: added

"Litmitless" Hmmm... Are you sure???

loading replies

Changeling is a mindfuck? 0.o .. really have to see it then...

loading replies

One more that would qualify:
http://trakt.tv/movie/limitless-2011

loading replies
loading replies

Nevermind, I just watched it.
It's worthy!

List is growing & growing :)
Next one on the list will probably be "Resolution" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1977895/ (not on trakt yet).
The new (1:48) trailer looks pretty promising.
http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer/resolution/trailer

loading replies

I'm thinking about putting "Mindhunters" http://trakt.tv/movie/mindhunters-2004 on the list.
I know there is a good twist, but it's been too long I've seen it.
Can anyone tell?

loading replies

THANKS guys for all the kind comments!!!
I don't know (all) the movies you've recommended, but I'll add them for you ;)

loading replies

Also you want to look

"In the Mouth of Madness"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113409/

another very enjoyable movie..at the verge of horror but not in the modern sense..more of a mystery thriller.

loading replies

You may want to look at David Lynch's "Lost Highway"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116922/

This was seriously mind fucking in an awesome way.

loading replies

Very good list.

I miss
- Prometheus
- 2001 A space Oddisey
- Eyes wide shut

loading replies

Seriously.. I can sink hours going through lists like these. Awesome stuff!

loading replies

very nice list Ben / Guys!

Love this feature - TRAKT IS AWESOME :D

loading replies

Thanks guys!
@rocko_2006 thx - I will check it out. Hope your guarantee is solid ;)

@drumstyk1 "Lucky Number Slevin" yeah... hmm.... I can't tell ´, it's been a long time I've seen it, can't remember.
What does the community say?

loading replies

I'm wondering if Lucky Number Slevin would qualify... I vote yes but I could see an argument both ways.

loading replies

OK, I'm sorry, but I can't stop thinking about movies for this list:

The City of Lost childrens (French title: La Cite des Enfants Perdus)
http://trakt.tv/movie/the-city-of-the-lost-children-1995

The hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy
http://trakt.tv/movie/the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy-2005

loading replies

If I can make a recommendation, start with Moebius (a short and compelling film, but a little "slow") and then with Dreams (the most beautiful film I've seen in my life).

And I can guarantee that you will not be sorry to see any of these movies.

PS: Another one that should be on this list: Brazil (http://trakt.tv/movie/brazil-1985) A cyberpunk film, with a mindfuck twist; and one of my personal Top 10.

loading replies

Yes, "The Adjustment Bureau" thanks, I totally forgot about this one.
I don't know about the other ones (haven't seen them yet)... but I'll have a look.

PLEASE NOTE:
Series like "Matrix" or "Saw" I only add once, because they have the same story/concept and I want to keep a good overview.

loading replies

Great list!!! there are a lot of movies that I must see.

Here are some more:

The Adjustment Bureau
http://trakt.tv/movie/the-adjustment-bureau-2011

loading replies

THANKS GUYS!!!
I'll have a look into that.

TRAKT ROCKS!!!

loading replies

A very nice list. I agree with most of the movies that are on this list that they qualify as a mindfuck.

I know a few more that would also qualify, mostly anime's:

Paprika (2006)
http://trakt.tv/movie/paprika-2006

Memories (1995)
http://trakt.tv/movie/memories-1995

The Animatrix (2003)
http://trakt.tv/movie/the-animatrix-2003

Mind Game (2004)
http://trakt.tv/movie/mind-game-2004
(You should definitely see this one, i consider it one of the best anime movies that fuck your mind :))

The Man from Earth (2007)
http://trakt.tv/movie/the-man-from-earth-2007

Being John Malkovich (1999)
http://trakt.tv/movie/being-john-malkovich-1999
(to be honest i am a little surprised you didn't add this one. This is one of the best and most well known mindfuck movies ever made)
