Twisty movies

I like movies that play with your mind. Films where you don't really know what's going on until the ending (and maybe not even then). For example:

Memento
Jacob's Ladder
Sixth Sense (of course)

Anyone have any more? (careful not to give away the endings)

The Sting! One of my favorites.

Hmm... I bet you've seen Arlington Road already, too.

Oh, and one that was really slow, but the twist makes it almost worth the other two hours of it... Session 9. I think it may have been straight to video. It has the first guy from NYPD Blue in it, but I can't remember his name. The redheaded detective.

I rented Arlington Road, but turned it off and returned it halfway through. Maybe I should have stuck around for the ending

Haven't seen Session 9, I'll look for it (David Caruso?)

That's his name! Be warned, if you rent it, you have to commit to watching to the end. Even though, if you're anything like me, you'll want to turn it off and go to bed halfway through. I'd recommend waiting until it's one of the cheap old release rentals, though.

And Arlington Road is worth another watch. It's definitely got a good twist to it.

I highly recommend The Thirteenth Floor 1999. Be sure NOT to read the liner notes on the DVD or VHS. They give away WAY too much of the story.

I also highly recommend Body Heat 1981, if you're not bothered by the sex scenes. Your mind will be tied up in knots trying to figure out what's really going on. The movie is Kathleen Turner's film debut and Lawrence Kasdan's directorial debut. This film is on my top 10 favorites list!

Your mention of Body Heat reminded me of The Last Seduction, a very good twisty movie (again, if you don't mind the sex scenes). Both movies have great femme fatales.
