Did you read the book? He saved the universe brah.
A Scanner Darkly?
Man, I fucking loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Loved it.
Is there any other viable choice besides Memento? Basically anything that Christopher Nolan writes and/or directs, there's a mindfuck involved in varying degrees. Also, Donnie Darko and Vanilla Sky, maybe. I've gotta watch Primer though. I've been hearing some good things about it since 2004.
And fuck it, I'm throwing in the Assassin's Creed games. Increasing, it is, in its mindfuckery as the games progress. They play out like movies.
thanks for the responses yall.
i kinda got turned off from assassin's creed once they started doing non-numbered sequels to milk part 2's engine, im tired of rome.
which they are doing yet again with another ezio game. they could have made the series progress throughout different time eras. they could have EASILY done a feudal japan/ninja assassin's creed with the open world engine that would have SHIT on every ninja game ever made.
on the topic, silent hill 2 was probably my favorite mind fuck as a video game. the symbolism of pyramid head, what happened to the dude's wife, the dude's punishment, etc.
primer starts off a bit slow BUT
you'll get pulled into a "WTF are these guys trying to build" feeling just to keep going
after you watch primer, i highly suggest going back and youtubing the explanations of what happened the times they went back
the only unfortunate thing about primer, is that all the actions of what happens during the second half of the movie don't make full sense unless you watch the movie a couple times OR just read/watch the explanations.
and i completely didnt realize what the last scene was until i read the explanation heh.
primer is definitely a mindfuck.
also imo, twist ending is not necessarily a mindfuck, although many twist endings to involve mindfucks.
If we're talking games, Bioshock comes to mind straight away.
Fuck you, my memories r 4 realz.
not sure if it has been mentioned but 'the game' michael douglas is fuckin insane
is a good one
It's not going to be in Rome this time around. I think they're going to Constantinople and Ezio will be visiting his ancestor Altair's old home from the first game. So the locale is changing at least. I think this game wraps up either Ezio's part in the story, or the series altogether.
Feudal Japan. Don't toy with my emotions using epic ideas.
that movie where theres a bunch of bunnies sitting around in a room
fuck i cant remember the name
and about 30 films that were named already...not Fight Club though, garbage movie
most have been mentioned already, if i remember correctly The Others also can be considered a mindfuck.
how are hardy candy and dogtooth (which IS an amazing movie btw) "mind fuck" movies?
For starters, Check out the film Ex Drummer
Also another GREAT one is called Anti-Christ staring William Defoe, you won't be dissapointed
Also, I've been a big fan of Crispin Glover for a while (Yeah, that guy from Back to the Future). On his own work, he has put out a trilogy of films entitled "What is It?", "It Is Fine, Everything Is Fine!" and the final one not yet made titled "It Is Mine!"
Anyways the first movie is consisted of mainly of actors with down syndrome. Last I remember, Glover would screen the first and second at invite only events and neither are released on dvd. I was able to snatch a copy of the first on demonoid a while ago (have no idea how it got up there). If you want to see a real mind fuck, with down syndrome, physically deformed people, a scene with a mentally retarted man getting head from a pornstar wearing a bunny mask then check it out (if you can find it, haven't checked in a while)
cant find a trailer for the first but
Here's the trailer for the second one i haven't seen yet:
also, op, i enjoyed primer
