I’ll never forget the feeling I got when I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for the first time. In essence, it was a romance, but the angle from which the story was told made it so much more – it was a movie on memory, time, and personal growth.
Donnie Darko, Life of Pi, and Requiem for a Dream to name a few are also great examples of how a thought-provoking movie can come in all shapes and forms. Romance, science fiction, drama or even genre-less creations such as Being John Malkovich; the less expectations we have from a movie the more it makes us think.
But, as the lords of Netflix have it, not all these movies are available to stream. Plus, who hasn’t seen Donnie Darko? (if you’re that person, stop reading this list and go watch it).
