As promised from my previous post Lights, Camera, My Love for watching movies.
Here’s my list of my mind melting movies that you probably won’t give a fuck about. But don’t worry the list is still gonna be here. Regardless of what you think. So let’s begin. But first. What is a mind melting movie?
It is a brainfuck of thoughts and scenes carefully stitched together with elegance and beauty by the director for you to unravel and discover and as you pull away each layer like scene of that onion like film until you reach its core, the climax where it all boils down into something you never could have expected. Your mind is thinking at about 10-15 WTF’s per minute. As you start to think about one particular scene. And that scene shifts to something else more mind boggling than the previous one. The movie craves for your attention and wouldn’t let you go out of its grip. You have to watch what happens in the end or the world would end. That’s a mind melting movie.
And honestly, I love those kinds of movies. I want movies to be a fast-paced sarcastic thriller that stands apart from the normal shit we are used to watching. That gets you a high, a blissful release from this world. A good movie is so many but a movie that makes you think is one in thousands. It could be anything for you. Share your list too in the comments section. Here is mine and it’s a bit cliche. In no particular order.
- Christopher Nolan’s work
- Split by M. Night Shyamalan
- The Usual Suspects and
- The Fight Club
- Source Code
- Donnie Drako
- The Machinist
- Don’t Breathe
- Blade Runner
- Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese
- Cloverfield Series produced by J.J. Abrams
- Gone Girl
- Vanilla Sky
- The Departed
And seriously tons more… Thing is these movies lands quite close to thriller. Maybe I am just renaming the genre here. For what I like for it to sound. Share any movies you would like to be added. Till then, peace out, rabbit.
