The Ambiguous Nature of Perception
List creator: AKrizman
Created on: November 10, 2002 - 9:53 AM PST
Description: Two people can stand side by side and witness the same event, and yet they each walk away with completely different memories of what happened. Somehow the empirical physical data gets translated differently by the individual's neurochemistry.

In the Mood for Love (Criterion Collection) (2000)

The Pledge (2001)
  Honestly, I didn't like this movie much. I can't go into details without revealing spoilers, but the ending subverts a potentially powerful point about how perception is distorted by obsession.
