10 Confusing Movies That People Just Didn’t Understand

I can't be the only one who has watched Inception multiple times and still doesn't fully understand it. Have you ever watched a big movie that you don't understand? You're not alone.

Recently a Redditor asked, “What movie did you just not get?” Redditors responded to deliver this list of big-deal movies that didn't register with all audiences. 

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

pnugget69, admitted, “I didn't get it either until I fell in love with somebody that probably has BPD. Stacked cast, yes. But Jeniffer Lawrence's character is supposed to convey someone emotional due to losing a loved one.”

The Lighthouse (2019)

Redditor saintecroix5 said, “It's primarily the story of Prometheus. So once considered, most of the film's themes and imagery seem far less confusing.” Ashamed_Phrase_5262 added, “Agree- it was entertaining but took a weird turn rather quickly.”

American Psycho (2000)

Redditor inehale stated, “American Psycho. It's one of my favorite movies, so I'm not bad-mouthing it, but that ending drives me insane. I can't figure it out. It makes no sense to me. What was the point supposed to be??????” 

Cloud Atlas (2012)

LightExpo argued, “I love it. First, you think the stories have almost nothing to do with each other (except for the actors), but then you see more and more remote connections. Even after the third rewatch, you still find new Easter eggs.”

Mulholland Drive (2001)

Redditor bayo_sandwich confessed, “It's one of the few movies I simultaneously intensely disliked but also was weirdly enchanted by, and the cowboy scene? So bizarre but also – so perfect.”

Donnie Darko (2001)

Redditor amadeus2490 added, “When given the option, I've always gone with the Director's Cut. So when I watched Donnie Darko, I had no clue why everyone else couldn't seem to understand the movie.”
