Meine zehn liebsten „Mindfuck“ – Filme

11. November 2014 at 1:53

So, liebe Leute. Anlässlich meines letzten Filmgenusses, der reichlich prägend war und an dieser Stelle auch noch entsprechend gewürdigt werden wird, hier mal eine kleine Liste meiner liebsten Vertreter des „Mindfuck“ – Genre. Filme also, die den Zuschauer bewusst und gekonnt durch verschiedenste Techniken in die Irre führen und, idealerweise erst am Schluss, etwas offenbaren, das nahezu vollkommen überrascht und nicht unbedingt vorhersehbar war. Oft zeichnen sich solche Filme dadurch aus, dass man sie auch dann noch öfter sehen kann, wenn die Auflösung bereits bekannt ist, sogar gerade dann, denn dadurch verlagert sich der Blickwinkel des Zuschauers und es werden Kleinigkeiten und Details entdeckt, die vorher nicht wahrgenommen wurden. Allerdings dient der Begriff „Mindfuck“ weniger als eigenes Genre, sondern eher als Effekt oder Stilmittel, und taucht auch in anderen Bereichen wie Literatur, Theater oder Bildende Kunst auf. Aus Ermangelung an Alternativen nutze ich aber diese Bezeichnung… außerdem mag ich das Wort irgendwie.

Diese Liste ist allerdings im Gegensatz zu meinen Lieblingsfilmen wertend, das heißt, ich beginne mit Platz 10 und arbeite mich dann zur Nummer 1 vor.
