“He’s cool. I was just a kid, and I wanted to hang around with him and be accepted by him—he played a lot of good-natured jokes on me. He’s a great actor, and I was really proud to be working alongside him.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio What’s Eating Gilbert Grape co-star, quoted in Depp, by Christopher Heard
“I’ve been very lucky to have achieved a lot of the things that I dreamt of achieving as a young man. But, at the end of the day - and I truly believe this - it is not about achieving great wealth or success. Because they don’t bring happiness, ultimately.“
“The brain controls pain. It controls fear. Sleep. Empathy. Hunger. Everything we associate with the heart or the soul or the nervous system is actually controlled by the brain. Everything. What if you could control it?”
Have you ever watched a movie and then you wondered what the hell actually happened there? You needed some times to think and conclude the ideas of the story. Well, this shit hits me few times. I don’t know whether my brain which needs an extra time to dissolve it or it is the movie which actually stupid. Thus, I’ve found some movies that were not stupid and It was actually my brain which needed an extra time to dissolve them. Here, I’ve listed 8 movies that made me wonder while I was watching them. You can try them if you haven’t :D
1. Silence of The Lambs (1991)
A treasure for crime genre lovers and also a treasure for any movie-genre lovers. Silence of The Lambs is absolutely stunning. I do really love the suspense created from the beginning to the end of the story. The story is about a young FBI cadet who is given duty to interview a cannibal serial killer in order to gain information about a now-wanted serial killer who skins his victims. I rate this movie 8.5/10.
2. Se7en (1995)
Another treasure for crime genre lovers or maybe it can turn people into crime genre lovers. Se7en is an interesting movie which gives ‘fresh idea’ for the crime motive. It is about two detectives who are hunting for a serial killer. The serial killer commits murder based on The Deadly Seven Sins. I rate this movie 8.4/10.
3. The Butterfly Effect (2004)
This time is not about crime. It plays with psychological and supernatural thing. It mixes science and something that can not be easily accepted by our brain. The Butterfly Effect tells us a story about a man who is suffering from his trauma. But somehow, he can travel to his past several times and change his life. Different action that he takes at the beginning causes different life that he lives. I rate this movie 7.7/10.
4. Shutter Island (2010)
THIS is the one that made me keep guessing and guessing about the ending. There were so many questions that I’d like to ask while watching it. Shutter Island tells about a U.S Marshal officer who goes to a hospital for criminal insane in a remote island called Shutter Island. He tries to uncover the ‘strange’ things happen there. Shockingly, he uncovers something worst about the hospital that turns back his mind. I rate this movie 8.3/10.
5. Gone Girl (2014)
A FAB surprising plot. I was feeling like being turned upside down by it. Another awesome thinking poured into a story. Gone Girl is about a man who is trying to find his missing wife. He is being confused by things that indicate him murder his wife while his wife is actually still alive. I rate this movie 8.3/10.
6. Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Nocturnal Animals is a brilliant movie. It is different. I love how the story develops through its hidden messages. It feels like trying to understand a literature work. I was so mesmerized with the concept of the story. Nocturnal Animals tells a story about a rich gallery owner who receives a thrilling novel written by her ex husband, Through the novel, there is actually a revenge that her ex husband tries to reveal. I rate this movie 8.4/10.
7. The Girl on The Train (2016)
A well-done plot twist. The Girl on The Train is definitely a good movie to watch. It will make you always questioning about what the hell is actually wrong with the protagonist. The Girl on The Train tells about a woman who has problem with her drinking (alcohol) and her previous marriage life. Those two really affect her life in the present days. She is often being played by her mind until one day, she witnesses something that change her life forever. I rate this movie 7.9/10
8. Get Out (2017)
2017 also has its own mind-thrilling movie. This movie is pretty unique because it involves race issue, crime, and science into one. The twist will entrance you; how humans can create such a thinking. What thinking? If I tell you it’s gonna be a spoiler, you had better go watch it to find out. Get Out is about a black man, Chris, who is invited by his white girlfriend’s family. They seem so nice and friendly and also strange at the same time. It is not too late for Chris to realize what actually is going on, what secret is actually hidden there. I rate this movie 8.0/10.
