Thursday Movie Picks: Movies That Confused Me

It’s Thursday and I’m back with a new Thursday Movie Picks feature post. This series is hosted by Wandering through the Shelves and offers you a weekly prompt to post some movie recommendations/talking points according to the theme. Usually, you are supposed to post about 3-5 examples, which I find a very manageable amount.

Today’s theme was suggested by Brittani and is movies that confused you! Weirdly, I can’t think of a bunch of films right from the top of my mind, but I’m quite certain there had to be several. Some movies are just baffling and we will take a look at some of them now!

Doors

Doors is a horror anthology movie, about doors from outer space. What do they do? Make people crazy or disappear. What else? I don’t really know, because I never understood the purpose of the doors. Maybe possess people? It’s an option.

Arrival

I love this movie with my whole freaking heart! I think it is beautiful and touching and memorable like few alien movies I watched. However, the timey wimey bit was a tad confusing. Maybe time is happening all at once? I don’t know, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Annihilation

Confession time: I still haven’t watched Annihilation … BUT I have read the book. I actually held off from watching the movie, because I wanted to continue with the book series, but then something always got in the way. It was a baffling read for sure though, so I imagine the movie to leave you with quite the questions as well though.

O Beautiful Night

In the end, I just had to rep some German language cinema as well. I remember really enjoying this movie, but I never fully got it. It’s a really strange film about death and how to properly live. Maybe.


What are some movies that confused you? What did you think of my picks? Let’s talk about that!
