If you like these type of films then this article is for you. There are lots of movies like that and these are interesting. Here are top 10 brain-twisting movies you should watch. Don’t miss out the fun.

Also called Mulholland Dr, is a neo-noir mystery thriller film. It is directed by David Lynch with great cast like Naomi Watts and Laura Harring.
This movie is about two women one is longing to be a star and the other is searching for herself. Both of their world will collide. Much more than being a simple “it was all a dream” twist, the film’s dual nature offers us insight into the relationship between fantasy and fiction.
