A clever and intriguing movie plot that force you to look deeper and find those complexities,

A perfect blend of simplicity and complexity, this is a must watch for not just smart ones but anyone who is a free thinker or a philosopher.

Truman Show

Groundhog Day is a funny, witty, clever film that exists on multiple levels to deliver a valuable life lesson.

The movie is about human potential, brain capacity and humanity’s need to access it.

Watch it to know when you use 100% of your brain!

Vanilla Sky

IMDb: 6.9/10

David Aames, a 33-year-old tycoon inherits publishing empire after his parents were killed in a car crash. As the movie unfolds, David goes through an unexpected roller-coaster ride of romance, comedy, suspicion, love, sex and dreams in a mind-bending search for his soul.

The thriller is more than just about David’s life and loves, there are surprises on top of surprises. Tight directing and clever twists will give you a colourful, surreal experience.

Mr Nobody

IMDb: 7.8/10

A science-fiction drama film is about choice and nature of choice. Nemo Nobody, a 118-year-old man who is the last mortal on Earth and going down the memory lane, he found himself standing at the railway station. The train is about to leave and he has to make a tough decision whether to stay with his mother or father after their divorce.

An infinity of possibilities rise from this decision. As long as he doesn’t choose, anything is possible. Sure, no one wants to regret later “would I have been better if I had made any different choices”

It is easy to choose between right and wrong but really very daunting when you have to choose between two right paths.

Coherence

IMDb: 7.2/10

The American psychological science fiction thriller is about a group of eight friends reunite at a dinner party on an evening, but mysterious things begin to happen due to the hostile influence of a passing Miller’s Comet.

The movie directed by James Ward Byrkit is based on the Schrödinger’s cat theory devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. In life we all dream of becoming an alternative self irrespective of the path we choose in life.

Watch out to know if it is possible for multiple simultaneous realities to exist at the same time.
