Does it count as mind bending if you watched it with a bent mind?

A good recent one is The Father starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman. Not sci-fi, but it definitely leaves you disoriented. To me, it was the best movie that came out in 2021.

Donnie Darko (theatrical release); not the director's cut that spoon feeds you nuance

Watching that Christmas 2008 was vastly different to every other year up to that point. George Bailey was one of the villains!

I loved Men. Not sure if the bad reviews are just nazis being nazis.

The question is mind bending, not prolapse inducing.

Also finally got through Dredd. The slo-mo drug scenes were pretty intense
