    "The best mind-bending movies make you go what the fuck. They make you feel like you just took some drugs. You don't understand what's going on but then you kind of do. You second guess yourself multiple times and wonder if a movie like this can exist. I want to see mind bending movies like that and this is a great link to movies like those. "

    "Jim Carrey is good in this movie, but not his best work. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a good mind bending movie though. It really makes you think about if you did erase an old girlfriend and what it would do to you. I recommend it."

    "This is a film that asks for repeated viewings, and then rewards the effort. Told "backwards," this is, at its core, a touching film about a man looking for solace after the death of his wife. Even if one is already familiar with the story--indeed, even if one has seen it before--it is worth watching repeatedly as new details emerge."

    "This movie is as old as I am, but it still holds up as a great example of a movie that will mess with your mind. It's not for the easily offended but if you can handle it, there's actually a message behind the disturbance."

    "Mulholland Drive is a very intriguing movie filled with mystery. I am a fan of Lynch's work and still find that sometimes it is a challenge to wrap your mind around the story. This is very much a film that you learn more as you watch and pick up new things watching again and again."

    "This film has everything for movie fans. The cinematography is phenomenal, the acting is amazing, and the plot is so hard to wrap your head around. You'll definitely want to go back and watch it again, and you'll still feel like you don't quite understand everything."

    "Blade Runner is quite possibly one of my favorite science fiction movies. Set in a dystopian fututure Los Angeles, Deckard is a Blade Runner who sets out to track down replicants or androids that have escaped to Earth. The themes in this movie are timeless and this is a movie I can watch time and time again it never gets old."
