I just saw "Lucky Number Slevin", excellent twists (more than the typical twist count, as well).

Two of my favourite films that are full of twisty goodness and deliciously unsettling in that 'subtle yet unrelenting' kind of way. "Donnie Darko" and an Aussie film "Alexandra's Project" highly recomended.

Not mentioned yet..."The 6th day" and "Collateral Damage" . It's an Arnold Swarzenegger movie, I know, but has a surprising twist to it. In Collateral Damage, don't remember him firing a gun, that's another surprise.

"One Hour Photo" - Robin Williams

"What lies beneath" - Harrison Ford & Michelle Pfeiffer

"Hide and Seek" - Robert Deniro

Most recent, I expect "The DaVinci Code". Skipped this one when it was showing because I've read the book. I'll probably rent the DVD after 2 years.

'House of Games' is an exceptional movie - with one twist after another, right up to the very final scene.

It's a David Mamet movie from 1987 - which should give you a good idea of what kind of movie it is.

Incidentally, Mamet also made 'Glengarry Glen Ross', which is another truly excellent movie - also with quite a few great twists.

They're both slightly more leftfield than the movies that have generally been mentioned in this thread so far, so I thought it's possible you may not be familiar with them.

Enjoy

No Way Out (1987)

The movie ends with an extremely surprising plot twist.

Re: Twisty movies

Just saw "Where the Truth Lies". Any Atom Agoyan film would qualify as twisty, though. He's unusually adept at pulling the rug out from under you. Everything will make perfect sense, then "whoops", then it makes even more sense and "whoops". But he never cheats, and it's all tied up in the end, albeit sometimes in ways we wish it weren't.

Re: Twisty movies

Running Scared is one of my favorite movies it has several metaphors to fairytale stories, mainly Pinocchio, and has a twisting plot

Re: Twisty movies

"The Perfect Host" totally caught me off guard. I was expecting a black comedy or maybe even a horror movie but it ended up being the twistiest movie I've seen in years! I can't even describe why I liked it as it might ruin one of the gazillion twists.
