Movies that confuse people are generally thought of as poorly made, but not all baffling movie plots are bad ones. Some screenwriters and directors purposefully attempt to befuddle their audiences, ensuring people need to think through a storyline - or watch it multiple times - before they really “get” the movie. 

Some of the greatest films of all time are also the most confusing movies ever made. These can include surrealist classics, non-chronological tales, or adventures that bend the laws of time and space. If a film is well-made, it doesn’t necessarily have to be understood to be enjoyed - but that hasn't stopped people from trying to decode them.
