Top Ten Mind-Benders

by Scottie Ferguson

A chronologically-ordered list of the ten most mind-bending movies I’ve ever seen. These are the puzzle box movies, the ones ripe for interpretation, the ones that never fail to leave me scratching my head afterwards. Also, I’m only counting feature-length films; no shorts, so movies like Un Chien Andalou, Meshes of the Afternoon, and La Jetee aren’t eligible.
