Monday Movie Meme – Confusion

Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
This week’s movie topic is all about Confusing Plots…all about confusing movie plots. Now, I don’t mind a plot that makes you pay
attention and think. But what I do mind are plots that leave you more confused at the end than when you started.  Share on your blog movies that make you go hmmmmmmm, and link back The Bumbles Blog
Well, I tend to forget  confusing movies fairly quickly.  Jason and I discuss it after we’ve watched it and if we can’t reach some sort of conclusion I usually just write it off as a bad movie 🙂  But here are a few I remember being confused by.
1. Donnie Darko (2001) was a movie that just made me feel stupid.  At least until after I’d watched it and then looked online for some answers and realized that the writers were confused themselves.  If you enjoyed it, great, but don’t think that you ‘got it’.  I actually liked the movie, but I do not pretend to completely understand it.
2. 2001:A Space Odyssey (1968) I wanted to like it, but ended up being confused as to how such a strange film in considered a classic.  Maybe it was all of the ‘special effects’ that did it in for me.  Or the last scenes.  Well, okay, maybe all of it.
3. The Matrix Revolutions (2003).  I really liked the first one.  Thought the second one was okay.  But this wrap up of the trilogy lost me.  Jason tried to explain it to me but it hurt my head.
4. Muholland Drive (2001) I remember I really liked this one, except by the end I had no idea what had just happened.  Frustrating, but the movie experience was still good.  Now that I’ve read some theories on the movie I want to go back and watch!
5. Planet of the Apes (2001).  It had been years since I saw the original, so maybe it’s not surprising that I felt confused by then end of this one.  And then cheated.  Jason rewatched it on tv, but I really didn’t want to waste any more of my time. 
Looks like 2001 was a confusing year for me.  Is there a movie that has always confused you?  Am I alone in my choices?
