Yesterday, I published a list of the ten most confusing movies as ranked by the British DVD outlet, LoveFilm. It was kind of a bullshit list, one that included the fairly straightforward Vanilla Sky in the number one position, and a few other inexplicable entries like A Clockwork Orange, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Memento.

The choices were so inexplicable, in fact, that I felt compelled to compile a proper list of the Ten Most Confusing Movies of All Time, basely largely on the comments our own readers posted in that entry. This is the list you folks, more or less, came up with.

10. Synecdoche, NY

9. Akira

8. End of Evangelion

7. Videodrome

6. Mulholland Dr

5. Eraserhead

4. π

3. Lost Highway

2. Primer

1. Rachel Getting Married


****

There were a couple of explanations for Rachel Getting Married below (first suggested by Jean), but I'm not sure that anyone quite cracked it. If anyone else would like to take a stab at explaining what Rachel Getting Married was all about, please feel free to use the comments section below. It was a head scratcher.


"Rachel Getting Married" was about Jonathan Demme showing us his superior ability to appreciate ethnic music and how small-minded the rest of us are to not get the joy of dishwasher loading as a competitive sport. -- Paddydog

I thought the point of "Rachel Getting Married" was that this unfortunate chick was born into a pretentiously annoying family. So annoying in fact, that she almost had no choice but to hate them and be constantly smacked-out. Despite the terrible things she did, you end up feeling sorry for her because most of us would've ended up just like her. -- Darth Darko
