      Dan Zukovic’s “DARK ARC” a truly bizarre noir-ish genre-bending,
      brain-bender…

      Oh man…That Man from Earth really didn’t do anything for me. The acting was horrific and put me off instantaneously. I can’t say I was thrilled with Mullholand Drive either…Lynch is too weird for my taste. I would add Groundhog Day to this list, even though it’s not necessarily as thought provoking as some of these, I still learned a lot from it :D Oh, Donnie Darko too. And Shutter Island. The Prestige is for me the best one on this list.

    Was going through this list and I was like, "huh?" I never saw any of these movies. Interesting. Then I saw the Matrix and said, "ok'. The list was a well comprised "thought provoking list", but of course it's subjective so everyone may respond differently. Nice effort regardless.

    I have seen 7 of the 10 movies listed here and agree they had me thinking about them the next day. Always a good sign that the movie was one I enjoyed. All except 2001. I have tried more than once to watch this film and both times gave up. Maybe the third time is the charm.

    Regardless, the Matrix is my favorite movie from this list, by far. I have seen it so many times, it borders on embarrassing. The prestige gave me the biggest "OMG" factor when I figured out what was going on, so the twist was the real mind blower.

    Evan did a wonderful job with this list and when we discussed him writing it we decided to stay away from movies where the twist WAS the movie, so M. Night movies were basically excluded. Although, Sixth Sense could easily be added to this list as I walked out in a daze trying to figure out how I could have missed the big twist.

    You people are some Kubrick haters! He directed Clockwork Orange and 2001 (amongst many other classics…now that his is dead we can call them classic).

    His work is simply amazing and it's truly a shame we can no longer enjoy new works from him. His last piece in work was Artificial Intelligence (though he worked on the project under a different title). After his death Spielberg took over the project.

    Thanks for including The Man From Earth. That's one of my favorite films. It has been adapted into a play and I would love to see it on stage one day.

    I noticed these are all English language films. There are some amazing, mind-blowing foreign films. Here are some I can think of.

    Oldboy, Spoorloos, Akira, Cache

    And what about Tideland, The Cell, Cube, Event Horizon, Fargo, The Machinist

    Reply
    1. Evan at |

      I definitely agree with you on Cache and Cube. Both of those could easily be on the list. Spoorloos seems like a bit of a stretch, but it is a great movie. The ending of that one will certainly stay with you for a few days.

        Perhaps he/she was a little bit rude with the comment, but one has the right to like whatever we want. If you think one person’s a fool just because they don’t like a “well-known artistic movie”… Certainly you’re mistaking by judging a priori. Does it feel good being on the safe side defending a film most of big-headed people worship? Where on Earth did that idea “No Clockwork Orange: Yes Transformers” come from? Your comment is disrespectful and the way you label things is annoying, just as Jawathehutt’s is.

    Good job on this list. I've seen almost all of these films, but there's a couple I'll have to check out ("Seconds" looks interesting).

    I'd probably have gone with Eraserhead instead of Mulholland Drive for David Lynch, but like you said, pretty much any of his movies could have made this list. You could write a whole list just about him!

    "What follows is a lengthy explosion of color and sound that can only be described as a psychedelic."

    Is this a typo or an admission of ignorance about psychedelia in general?

    "it gained a reputation with the youth culture as a popular movie to see while high on acid."

    High on acid? Are you serious? Nobody who has ever taken LSD would describe the experience as a "high"

    You, sir, need to stop speculating on that which you do not, and can not, understand.

    Reply
    1. Evan at |

      I'm not really sure what you're complaining about here. I just looked up the word "psychedelic" and got this definition: "having the vivid colours and complex patterns popularly associated with the visual effects of psychedelic states." That seems to be exactly the way in which I used it. As for using the word "high" in relation to LSD, I know that 's not the kind of effect it has, but come on, at this point that's pretty much a blanket term for being under the influence of any drug.

      1. Katelin at |

        Firstly, since WHEN is it cool to nit-pick what someone else’s experience on acid was like. It IS a huge HIGHHH when you are TRIPPIN. So,Lord of Numa, maybe you should sit back, get a nice little vile of acid, drop some into a sugar cube(or your eye!) and chill. Like Evan said, HIGH is a blanket term.. and thus is should be treated so. I teach 5th graders and I have them meditate every morning before we start any work..then we eat a snack , listen to classic rock and get our minds going.Maybe you should try that Numa if you aren’t into psychedelics:) I don’t need a reply with you TRYING to sound intelligent about something that doesn’t require a lot of thought..use your knowledge for something that will benefit others, not hurt them.

    I like this list, a lot of great movies as well as some I haven't seen and will definitely try out. The only one I personally dislike is 2001. I understand why people like it. But I refuse to acknowledge 2001 as a movie. There's barely any plot, nearly no dialogue, and most of the film is preposterously boring. Don't get me wrong, I love Kubrick. He's a great director and some of my favorite movies are directed by him. But I really loathe 2001. It bored me to no end and I to this day refuse to watch it.

    The ending to 2001 is simple:

    Dave Bowman escaped from the god-like control that HAL had over him. He had become enlightened and was able to defeat HAL (camera angles help this thought). After that, when the trip sequence starts, he is having a dream sequence which is symbolic of him leaving. Leaving where? The movie itself. He has left the dimensions of the movie screen (this was before VHS), and has entered a realm of symbolic rebirth (renaissance decor = "rebirth" decor). He severs all ties to technology, and must then overcome his final God, Kubrick himself. He severs all ties to 2001 the movie, and when the monolith appears for the last time, Bowman realizes that he is 2 dimensional, and can reach the monolith in a 2D perspective although from a 3D perspective, he must get up first. He is then symbolically reborn as a "Star Child", which makes him free from the training wheels of technology.

    Duh!

      I think all the movies you listed are great, but not all of them are MIND-BLOWING, which this list is about…like Inglorious Basterds and Inception..

      I DO agree that Donnie Darko should be on the list.

      And for those mentioning Lord of the rings and the likes….great movies, but in no way mind-blowing (yeah you are amazed and possibly awestruck at the cinema, but it doesn’t make you think radically new thoughts or let you view life differently or in another perspective)

      By the way, a very good list – Im gonna see Man on earth and Seconds whenever i get the chance!

    As someone who saw ‘The Usual Suspects’ when it was only showing in the art house theaters, it was certainly a mind-blowing movie and I’m surprised it didn’t appear on the list. To have an entire theater give a collective gasp at the end, applaud and whistle over the credits, then congregate in the parking lot afterward to discuss it? I’d say there were some minds that were blown.

    Kubrick’s “Clockwork Orange” was a boring,idiotic movie– On the other side of the coin I agree that his “2001: A Space Odyssey” would be number 1.

      shame on you dennis – can’t you recognise a good piece of orwellian cinema when you see it?

      Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange tells the story of a dismal, near future society under the control of severe authoritarian rule. Survival of the fittest and mind control a-plenty.

      Watch it again, then go watch CNN for a couple of days. You won’t see the difference.

    Enter the Void is mindblowing, enlightening, disturbing. It messed me up and had my head spinning for weeks after I watched it. I had quite a paradigm shift. Its about a guy, we see in the movie that’s about to trip, i’m thinking he’s about to take dmt maybe. The entire movie you spend in first person, and while stoned this creates the effect that everything the protagonist is experiencing you experience a little too. A friend early on asks him if he’s read the book he gave him yet. The book is The Tibetan Book of the Dead, which is a book that leads a person through the stages of death onto rebirth then liberation. Early on the main character gets shot when he goes with a drug dealer friend to a place that gets raided. The camera or ‘you as the main character’ lingers and examines his own dead body. So he is now still conscious but not in his body as he visits, dreamlike, moments from his past, looking in on his sister, his friend etc. It is quite a trip, with psychedelic first person tunnels that his consciousness and yours travels through to the next “dream/life” sequence/level/state. It could be disturbing to some, if you have a problem with almost x rated scenes, or the fact that the main character was a little too close to his sister….but that’s all if you look at sex from only a physical point of view…and anyone with vertigo will not be able to take the trip scenes and possibly the first person wobbly camera effect, or anyone who just wants comedy/pot movies. If you are shallow or superficial, that’s what you will get out of the movie, but if you like to plumb the depths of consciousness, you will find treasures in this movie to contemplate for a long time! About a month after watching it, I am still very impacted by the movie and ran across this 16 page essay or chapter from Ken Wilber entitled Death Rebirth and Meditation that I think could almost be a companion piece for the movie, and adds even more mindblowing facets to aspects of the movie that you might have overlooked. If you don’t trust the link or it doesn’t post just Google for a pdf of the article. Good stuff! smoke up and go watch this movie! it’s streaming now on netflix if you have account.

    in my opinion the best top 10 list wich is according to my point of view is following:

    2- Batman begins (2005) & No country For Old Man (2007)
    3- Inception (2010)

    6- The Fellowship Of The Ring (2001) First part of lords of the ring series & Enemy At The gates (2001)
    7- Departed (2006)

    9- Public Enemies (2009), The King’s Speech (2010), Avatar (2009), The Core (2003), National treasure (2004)

    There are many mnay good movies from 2001 to 2010,, every reay has produced 10 or 12 very very good movies and in 2008 ithink atleast 20 very very good movies were released,,, and i have very very difficulty to pick the best movies.

    Hollywood Film Industry is the best film industry of the world and that is the reason why many people have too many point of opinions,, the top 2 or 3 movies of someone is not in the top 25 movies of another one.

    No.8 “A Clockwork Orange” should be in a list of its own. It is far and wide my favorite movie ever made and of course the genius/director Stanley Kubrick is the director (besides “Eyes Wide Shut” what movie of his is NOT a masterpiece). It was voted #46 in the AFI Top 100 movies ever made and the photography is needlepoint perfect. WARNING : Guys, I highly recommend that you do NOT take your woman or wife to see this movie due to the graphic scenes of rape and violence. However, it has one of the greatest story lines ever written. This movie is an exhilirating movie to watch and I have read only two books in my lifetime TWICE. “A Clockwork Orange” and Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas”

    Love A Clockwork Orange. How was that one supposed to blow my mind though? I know a lot of people had their minds blown by The Matrix, but there are a fair number of people, including me and a few of my friends, that had their Descartes moments in elementary school (for all of us that was before that movie came out). 2001, I assume you’re talking about the ending, I’m not sure about that. Fight Club was quite interesting.Not unlike The Machinist.

      Never seen 2, 4, 5, Enemy at the Gates, Public Enemies, Avatar, The Core, Aviator, The Hurt Locker or True Grit.. The second part of the lotr series is called the Two Towers, btw. Also I think when there are multiple listings tied for a number, they take the place of as many listings as there are. Basically if there are two tied for first, there’s no second place. Here’s mine:

      1: The Departed
      2: LOTR Return of the King
      3: Gangs of New York
      4: Inception
      5: The King’s Speech
      6: Crash
      7: Gladiator
      8: There Will Be Blood
      9: Mystic River
      10: Cinderella Man

      That said I have also not seen The Pianist, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, or City of God, all of which are supposed to be excellent.

    Awesome list …. I would only take out “Mulholland Dr” and “2001” since i didn’t get the purpose of those movies completely so i couldn’t be mind blown. I would replace them with “Shutter Island” and “The Usual Suspects” then the list would be perfect for me.

      I would find it highly advisable to anyone who sees the last third of “2001 : A Space Odyssey” that they are not under the throes of a hallucinigenic drug like LSD or “Magic” Mushrooms. The greatest experts and critics in movie and cinema history still can’t figure out what the last third of that movie is supposed to mean !!

    I like the list, but honestly the Matrix, and A Clockwork Orange weren’t exactly mind blowing to me personally. Not that I didn’t like them, but movies like Primer, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Man From Earth are more up my alley of mind blowing. Of course I agree with the other comments, its a personal taste. I didn’t care for 2001 either, but would of loved to have seen Memento on the list.

    There has never been a film that makes me think more than Fight Club. 13 years later and I still find myself thinking about it. 2001 was certainly a mind f*** but it was so confusing at the end I can’ begin to image what it was going for.

    dont agree with all of them.

    The Fight Club
    The Matrix
    2001 space odyssey
    The Prestige
    Eternal Sunshine

    I’ve seen most of the movies here. I always wanted to see A Clockwork Orange since I was about ten and saw the iconic Poster in a TV guide advertising it being released after being banned for 18yrs. I the saw the VHS in the store and the picture of Alex strapped in the straight jacket with his hair pulled back and eye lids pried open had me transfixed. I had to see this movie!! Finally at 18 I got to see it but was disappointed -it wasn’t anywhere near as trippy or twisted or shocking as I expected. Videodrome probably came closer to what I expected but even then not close enough. But still Clockwork Orange is still one of my favourite movies of all time. A brilliant film who Tarantino owes a lot of his tricks too.

    Great post and I love the follow-up. I think the films and the fans’ responses are proof that everyone has an opinion that is allowed to be expressed – UNLESS you are a few of the films we;re talking about!

    Fascinating – keep the comments coming AND DO include “Donnie Darko.” It will fit in any slot from #10 to #1.

    P.S. What – no love for “The Human Centipede?”

    I saw primer as an intriguing insight into the nature of time, determinism and wealth… It provoked discussion and debate, but about its themes, rather than the film itself. This is where I think it fails. It’s a film which tackles interesting topics, but the film itself isn’t very interesting or well made.

    Awesome list.
    I’d definitely swap ‘The Man From Earth’, in my view a very boring and unimaginative movie (especially given it’s promising concept), and instead put either ‘abre los ojos’ or ‘the usual supsects’ on the list.
    Donnie Darko deserves an honorable mention, but never made perfect sense to me. I strongly feel there were gaping plot holes. Also, I think Fight Club should be number 1.
