we do love the lighthearted, simple flicks for when we’re just looking for a
release from reality, we also like movies that require our full attention—or
even mess with our heads a little. Here’s a list of four films that make ya
think—during and after those end credits role.
Inception – While this movie takes plenty of concentration and brainpower
to get through it, it’s certainly a no-brainer for this list! Cob takes you
through layers and layers of dreams, so far into the mind that it’s quite
possible to get lost forever, all in order to plant an idea in a man’s head.
The movie (which requires multiple watching to understand) leaves viewers with
the question: Is this reality or a dream?
Avatar – This movie takes you into a whole other world: the moon
Pandora. It follows Jake Sully as he goes back and forth between his
wheelchair-ridden body back at the science department and his fully
functioning, blue-skinned avatar (a human-Na’vi hybrid) in the forests of
Truman Show – Truman is a normal businessman living an ordinary life
with his wife, kids and friends. But what he doesn’t know is that his life is
completely fake. He’s actually the star of a reality TV show called “The Truman
Show” and everyone he thought he knew is just another paid actor. When Truman
makes this discovery, his paranoia kicks in as he realizes his entire world has
been confined to a large movie set.
Prestige – Throughout three different narratives, we learn the
stories of two rivaling magicians and their quest to outdo one another. The
petty competition turns rather dangerous, and one magic trick teaches the
audience that it’s better that a magician doesn’t
reveal his deadly secrets.
