What a surreal movie it is. When this movie ended I was so uneasy that I had to watch Mr. Bean’s movie to remove the aftermath. Jennifer Lawrence (Mother) has done a remarkable job in this film. It is always very tough to watch Aronofsky movies but the thrill he offers is unparalleled.

Every audience was perplexed confused and baffled by the story and nonlinear storytelling of Donnie Darko. So, the director released a director cut of this movie with scenes of the novel in the movie. It still makes no sense to me but before writing this, I get the movie. I think

I will write you one quote from the movie that is still in my head.

Nina Sayers is a ballerina, talented but unstable. She represents the white Swan, innocent and elegant. But Black Swan enters her life. Black Swan is sensual and bold making her stronger over White Swan. The story progresses as Nina Sayer (White Swan) gets in touch with her darker side.

 Best Movies Like Get Out

Director: Roman Polanski

Cast: Mia Farrow as Rosemary Woodhouse, John Cassavetes as Guy Woodhouse, Ruth Gordon as Minnie Castevet, Sidney Blackmer as Roman Castevet, Maurice Evans as Hutch, Ralph Bellamy as Dr. Sapirstein

Polanski excels in this kind of genre. He makes you believe this world is real and you are part of it. He makes you explore within the movie and after the movie ends, he compels you to explore inside of you. 


Rosemary Woodhouse, a young woman moves into a New York City apartment with her husband. Strange neighbors surround this apartment. She starts feeling terror and alienation after becoming pregnant. Disturbing thoughts and paranoia start hitting her hard.

What I loved most about this movie was Rosemary’s performance. Her performance alone added much-needed tension to the movie. Also, the pacing of this movie is perfect.

The second venture of Jorden Peele is as good as his first one. I would even say that the maturity in storytelling and handling complex storytelling in this movie is more powerful than the first one. If you liked Get Out then just go and play this movie and be engrossed by its subtle messages, storytelling, and characters and its digs on pop culture and overall culture.


Wilson’s family goes out to spend their vacation in California. One day their youngest son is almost lost while walking without consciousness. After this incident Mother Adelaide becomes protective.

I was scratching my head for the whole runtime of this movie. The unreliable narrative, the twists and turns, and the shocking revelations make you speechless and hooked till the end of the movie. Martin Scorsese challenges you to understand the movie, and what Shutter Island means. Let me give a fun fact. The movie’s name is an anagram of Truths/Denials or Truth/Lies

Stanley Kubrick adopting the work of the great writer Stephen King should only compel any movie to watch this movie. If this does not compel you then I would say that there are various easter eggs in this movie on the Get Out. First watch Get Out and explore the movie and then you will know the inspirations and various references.

Before you go and watch it let me tell you one thing. I could not watch this movie at first. I was so scared I had to sleep with the lights on.


Jack Torrance is a penniless writer. Along with his wife and little son, they become the caretaker of the ominous Overlook Hotel. Isolated by a snowfall, the family soon discovers that the hotel has secrets. Jack becomes mentally weaker. The hotel’s scary spirits taunt him.

Director: Marry Harron

Cast: Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, Willem Dafoe as Detective Donald Kimball, Jared Leto as Paul Allen, Reese Witherspoon as Evelyn Williams, Samantha Mathis as Courtney Rawlinson, Chloë Sevigny as Jean, Justin Theroux as Timothy Bryce

I would like to thank Christian Bale for doing this movie with such amazing acting. This is one of my favorite movies. It explores various underlying societal norms, competition consumerism, and cooperative life. But the imaginative storytelling with unreliable narrative will hook you and confuse you and let you explore the world of American Psycho for yourself.

To talk about this movie without calling it a masterpiece would be an insult. You should ask if Christian Bale should play the next Joker, after watching it.


Patrick Bateman, a rich investment banker in Manhattan. He is a psychopath who hides his tendencies from his co-workers. Christian Bale’s portrayal of Bateman is both scary and compelling. This dark comedy compels you to think about various aspects of society, life, and our success.
