This is hilarious.

A few months ago I was searching for a bunch of movies with the parameters "thought provoking movies", which inevitably led me to the INTJ Forum. I had my way with their suggestions. Thoroughly.

Once again, your information is met with tremendous gratitude. I cannot sit through a single flick that lacks depth. Suddenly, life looks good again.

As for some of my favourites...

Jacob's Ladder
La Vita Bella (Life Is Beautiful)
Perfume: Story Of A Murderer
Pirates Of Silicon Valley
Shutter Island
Thank You For Smoking*
The Dark Knight
The Devil's Advocate
The Machinist*
The Man From Earth*
The Prestige
The Shawshank Redemption

* an asterisk denotes some of the more mentally stimulating and/or innovative of the aforementioned, but does not indicate personal favorites over the others.

Inception, The Dark Knight, The Empire Strikes Back, Tron: Legacy, Napoleon Dynamite.

I see some of you put up The Social Network. I couldn’t get into it, though, because a) I can’t stand Mark Zuckerburg, b) it became very obvious to me early on that I am a dumber female version of Mark Zuckerburg in temperament, and c) I HATE Facebook.
