Movies that Feature Confusing Worlds:
Have you ever watched a movie that depicts a world within the movie that is confusing and complex as hell and loved it regardless? Well, then this list will help you explore ten such worlds which have managed to baffle the fans with the help of engaging and intelligent concept.
#10: OtherLife (2017)
A lot of fans compared this movie with the TV series Black Mirror and they are correct, as OtherLife feels like an extended version of that show. The movie is about a piece of software that can transport you into a dream-like world, and even though the budget of the movie is not very high, the makers have managed to create a very intriguing world.
#9: Ready Player One (2018)
Ready Player One displays an amazing and immersive virtual world where the majority of humanity spends its time. In the OASIS you can virtually do anything and it can be a bit overwhelming at times as there are a lot of moving parts. The world inside the movie is beautiful and a dream come true for anyone.
#8: The Dark Tower
If you have read the book then you know how awesome the world in this universe is. The books beat the movie, it’s not even a contest but if you disregard this fact then you’ll have a lot of fun. The Dark Tower is about Jake, a teenager who has to save the world from a Man in Black who hails from another post-apocalyptic world named Mid-World.
#7: Edge of Tomorrow
This movie will confuse you, but in a way in which you will love it. The world is at war with an alien species and the day restarts as soon as Tom Cruise’s character dies in this world. The movie is conceptually very strong and it is not as simple as it looks. What would you do if you get to relive the same day over and over again?
#6: Parallels (2015)
Parallels have one of the most appealing concepts in the given list as it features the concept of parallel Earths. Although the movie failed to execute the concept perfectly, the concept is still solid. The movie was originally conceived as a pilot for a television show and it’s a shame that it wasn’t picked up.
#5: Source Code (2011)
Jake Gyllenhaal is an amazing actor who never disappoints. There is no way you won’t be confused by this movie at first as the Universe in this movie is very complex. The story is about a soldier who wakes up in someone else’s body and now only has 8 minutes to stop a catastrophe. You cannot spoil this movie as even the smallest detail can ruin the movie for you.
#4: Coraline (2009)
Imagine a Non-Disney version of Alice in Wonderland and you will get Coraline. The story is about an eleven-year-old girl named Caroline who walks through a secret door and discovers a deeply unsettling parallel reality. The movie is an animated feature, but that does not mean the movie is particularly for kids. The world is deeply realistic and confusing.
#3: Predestination (2014)
You will not be able to understand this movie until the last minute. Predestination is one of the best sci-fi movies ever created and it is not for a normal viewer. It is highly likely that you won’t understand the time travel concept depicted in this world at once. This movie deserves more recognition. Predestination will definitely blow your mind.
#2: The Matrix (1999)
The impact of this movie was so profound that people still believe that they are living in the Matrix. The mechanism of the world depicted in the movie is very complex so it can be a little overwhelming. The movie is thought-provoking and it will keep you awake for years. Are you 100% sure you’re not in the Matrix?
#1: Inception (2010)
If you completely understood the movie in your first viewing then congratulations, as you are in the minority. The Dreamworld depicted in Inception is complex and super confusing, which makes it all the more realistic and fun and only a director of Nolan’s caliber could handle such an amazing concept.
