Movies you had the most trouble understanding?

This thread is inspired by the movie "Mulholland Drive". Mostly because of how this movie came with an actual list of tips in order to try to help you to better understand what the f*ck was going on lol.

So on that note, what movies did you have trouble understanding? It can be a movie you have never truly understood, or it can be one that you only understood after repeated viewings.

Not surprisingly I will mention Mulholland Drive, to which despite it coming with helpful hints to try to make it easier..I still really have no clue wtf was truly going on.

I was confused by that, was he killing people or was it in his mind? I haven't seen the movie in a while

I mean, I think that is the final plot point when he talks to his lawyer at the climax of the movie.

Sherlock Holmes. I watched it without subtitles and I had no clue what anyone was saying through the quick-talking accents.


Very confusing.

In the movie it's left to the viewer's interpretation, although only one option makes sense tbh.

The author of the book and the director of the movie said that he WAS killing people, but people in the American Psycho universe are all so shallow and self absorbed that they didn't notice/care what Bateman was doing.

No I had the same problem, was he a killer? Was he not? I don't know.

Vanilla Sky is another weird f*cking movie.

I first watched Memento when I was about 14 and that was a bit of a mind boggler at the time.

I'd have to say Primer is still the film that pickles my brain even after several viewings. Physics was never my best subject and it's very heavily loaded in that dept.

That is why the Transformers, Twilight, Fifty Shades, and Rogue 1 made money.

I agree with a lot of the ones mentioned so far...

American Psycho
Vanilla Sky

I did not understand either of those films. I'll also add Mission Impossible. It's been a long time since I've seen it, though.

I did understand Mulholland Drive, though. It's been many years since I've seen it, but what I remember thinking is that it's conceptual in that you are living this depressed girl's hopes and dreams moving to Hollywood to make it big, but then get jolted to reality and she has killed herself. It's a pretty epically depressing movie... feel good film of the year.

It wasn't so much as not understanding but I totally missed that minor scene where the husband is randomly killed. It was shown as a news footage of dead bodies in a hotel room & you're apparently supposed to recognise the husband by the boots he was wearing...such a minor detail considering the other dead men were wearing boots too.

Anyway I totally expected the husband to finally turn up at the end of the movie to save his wife & when he didn't, I had to rewind the film to figure out he was actually randomly killed (for no apparent reason to the plot) halfway through.

You're not getting mine, but it was admittedly a pretty weak attempt on my part thumb up
