That's a good list bossing @Vinno B. Rocha. Some of those napanood ko pero matagal and nakalimutan ko na like City of Lost Children. I think that's the French one with the clown and children but I'm not sure. Boxing Helena I watched because of Sherilyn Fenn :D:D ..then it got weird with the surgical removal of all her limbs. It scarred me as a teen even though it was just in his head, it was a boner killer.

Emanon, napanood ko 'yan as in super tagal na. That's no name in reverse am I right? :) I'm surprised na meron ding nakapanood nito dito sa APS :)

Inland Empire I think is the most incomprehensible among David Lynch's films. Don't bother deciphering it and just enjoy the ride.

I think I can also categorize Stranger Than Fiction as a feel good movie. It's a more restrained Will Ferrell. Comedians can at times be great dramatic or character actors if given the chance. Little did he know...

Pi. Yeah. That drill scene though. I think David Lynch and Darren Aronofsky has an ongoing bet on who can make the batsh*t craziest film.

Tama po Sir @This_Is_The_End... si Ron Perlman yung bida jan sa City of Lost Children. It even had a PC game which later on was derived for playstation. Right again about Emanon... the kid thought of him as the one who has "No Name".

Yang Inland Empire twice ko pinanood para maintindihan ko.

Boxing Helena showcased Sherilyn Fenn as an actress. Better acting than what she did in Two Moon Junction. Loved her "insured" boobs noted for the most perfect cleavage. hehe :D

I'll go for David Lynch when it comes to creativity and the element of surprise... no offense to Mr. Aronofsky.

Darren's Requiem for a Dream in 2000 was a great one too... yun nga lang sablay dun sa Black Swan.  Is it he that was set to direct Gambit in 2018?

Doug Liman is directing Gambit. A few of his notable gig was Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow. Production hasn't started yet so who knows if he'll stick around. That project has been in development hell for quite sometime na.

Aronofsky was supposed to direct the second Wolverine movie but it eventually went to James Mangold, the dude who directed 3:10 to Yuma.

Kasama ba dito Ocean Series? gusto ko yung crime or anything na realistic pero mind fucked. 

Try the following con/heist movies - Confidence, The Spanish Prisoner, and The Brothers Bloom. Hopefully downloadable or streaming pa online kasi medyo luma na ng kaunti especially The Spanish Prisoner, mid 90s 'ata 'to kung tama pagkakaalala ko.

This can’t be the only movies right? Where’s Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem? That one is really f*cked up but when you research the meaning of the movie, it makes SO much sense.

Predestination though.. g*ddamn that was a mindf*cker. Haha

I’ve seen a majority of them. Although I wouldn’t classify Interstellar a mind f*ck movie but more of a theoretical science movie. Things were explained scientifically over different websites on how the plot came to be. Unlike Mother! which from watching it the first time was like, “huh? Why did that happen? Who the hell is this guy? How the hell did that happen?” kind of movie.

I’ll try to compile a list of some that I’ve seen (and wish to see).

I’m also surprised Identity, starring John Cusack isn’t in here. Now that one will make you think.

Good choices. Pero if sa 'mother!' pa lang ay mindfuck na, you should try Aronofsky's first film, 'Pi'. His JLaw film honestly pales in comparison to his debut.

I'll also recommend Luis Buñuel's 'The Exterminating Angel', David Cronenberg's 'Videodrome', Terry Gillam's 'Brazil', and David Lynch's 'Eraserhead'.

I think I’ve seen Pi. I’ll rewatch it and take a gander at the other films you suggested. Thanks bud!

*I googled some of them and I think I’ll start with Brazil. Post apocalyptic/dystopian movies are my thing. Something like The Lobster starring Colin Farrell

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch - After seeing all the possible and even hidden endings, just left me speechless.

A Perfect Getaway - also another film I can't seem to forget because of one of the biggest plot holes/twist in history.

Interstellar - I've always like Nolan's Sci-Fi films. This one in particular is no exception.

Nightcrawler - one of Jake Gyllenhaal's best performance because it's something different. The attitude, personality and that outlook he has in life to get ahead of everybody is really what made this film successful imho.

BURIED is not a mindf*cked movie but is a you're f*cked now bitch type of movie. If you put yourself into the shoes of the character, i'll bet you'll feel uneasy right away.

EXTINCTION on netflix is a mystery movie that has a good twist towards the end
