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.

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