Movies that are open to interpretation?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I don't mean movies that just have equivocal meanings or messages, I mean movies with uncertain straight-out plots. Harvey; was there really a pooka or was Elwood nuts, as it would seem if taken at face value? Evil Dead 2; did Ash die at the end of Evil Dead? Donnie Darko; uhh? And so on and so forth. These movies I seem to enjoy the most - the ones that don't have a single, distinct 'answer.' You can talk about them, argue about them, and fill in the blanks yourself.

Anybody want to help me out with my list here?

Lost Highway. I can explain Nulholland Drive just fine, but Lost Highway has been and very likely always will be a mystery to me.

How about some Cronenberg?

Scanners Cameron or Revok?

Videodrome Woods the next step in evolution or efficient corporate tool?

I just watched Breaking the Waves for the first time this week, and not having seen very much by Von Trier, I can't figure out whether it was supposed to be an utterly sincere ode to personal religious values, or whether the whole thing was a cynical attack of all religion. Even with the final scene, I can see it both ways.

Memento: How aware was Leonard of his condition? Who told the truth? Who's a deliberately confusing liar person?
Rashomon: What really happened?
Reversal of Fortune: Did he or didn't he?
2001 and Eyes Wide Shut are pretty vague in parts.
