The Life of the Mind

A very rough list of eccentric cerebral films - films that are consisted of many wonderful imaginative ideas and creations, that came directly from the vision of the psyche. Sometimes they don't make a lick of sense but they are powerful enough to suck you into their hypnotic and chaotic world(s). This list will be updated constantly.
