Isn’t it fun that every once in a while a movie comes along that completely f**ks up your brain? The films that are more like riddles or puzzles, the answers to which is very difficult to get at. Yes, you may come out irritated — or, completely mesmerized, in my case — but slowly, you have the temptation to watch the film again and again. Otherwise, you may choose to go to google or wikipedia. And yet, you might not be able to fully understand the film. But worry no more, because we have to put together explanations of all the confusing movies at one single place.
Here’s the list of top most complex movies ever that we fully explained. Yes, these movies are like brain teasers for adults (and some kids) with answers. You can watch some of these best complex movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
‘Interstellar’ is not perfect, and neither is it trying to be.

You just need a little patience and multiple viewings to completely get the film.

A film that is discussed even today, around 15 years after its release and yet, not every question about the film has been answered. ‘Mulholland Dr.’, quite simply, offers the greatest cinematic mystery of all time.
