The final plot twist can propel a good enough movie into classic cinema status. Sometimes, the twist ending completely shocks you that you review the entire movie in your mind and you see everything in a different light. Here is a list of the greatest mind twisting movies of all time.
Tenet is an action-packed thriller that is scheduled to be released on the 3rd of September, 2020. This upcoming spine-chilling Warner Bros. Pictures movie is written and directed by Christopher Nolan. According to Nolan, Tenet is the most ambitious movie they have created. He also revealed that the film was shot in seven countries namely Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This espionage movie features some mind-bending twists, with John David Washington playing the lead role.
Black Swan, the ballet freak-out movie starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, had gotten a lot of attention not only in the Oscars (Portman won Best Actress) but also amongst psychologists. The movie portrays the frightening descent of a sweet and fragile ballerina named Nina into madness in her plight to achieve perfection. Her metamorphosis into the evil Swan Queen is so complete she literally sprouts feathers and wings and develops webbed feet. She even sees a doppelganger of herself, always clad in black, smiling menacingly. Dr. Steve Lamberti, professor of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center, says that the movie presents a reasonable portrait of psychosis.
Psychosis is a loss of contact with reality that usually includes false beliefs or delusions, and the mind gets twisted into seeing or hearing things that are not there. It can be caused by drugs like amphetamines, epilepsy, a brain tumor, dementia or psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia. In the movie, Nina and rival Lily take ecstasy, which triggers a psychotic episode. She imagines them having sex, which isn't true as evidenced by Nina being alone in her room the next morning. Nina also shows other signs of psychological disorders like anorexia, bulimia, cutting and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Nina is very organized when it comes to her belongings, always making sure they’re lined up, and she frequently throws up in the bathroom. Finally, during the premiere performance of Swan Lake, she completely loses grip of reality and kills herself, thinking she stabbed Lily when in fact it was her having a mental breakdown. Psychosis, particularly in schizophrenia, involves negative symptoms, as patients start slipping away from contact with reality. This makes Black Swan one of the most scarily accurate psychological studies in film format and a harrowing cautionary tale on the perils of striving for perfection.
