Top 25 Movie Mindjob Countdown – Infinity Chamber

As I explained – in this much too long post – I have decided to mine the depths of this site’s intellectual movie capital of crazy awesome movies and craft a top 25 movies list. Now, this movies list will be unlike any other movie list you’ve ever seen. Why? Because Quality and Unknownness will be equally weighted. And lucky for you, I built an algorithm to find and surface the crazy mindjobs that no one has heard of so that I can bring them to you in this top twenty five countdown. Right? So yes, the top 25 movie mindjob countdown – Infinity Chamber. Our list so far:

Have loved watching this list grow and grow as we find more and more movies that are below your radar… And here is the total list of every movie published so far.

Number 8 – Infinity Chamber

There is no movie better in the world than an open-ended movie that makes you ponder what just happened. A movie with room to breath and consider for yourself what might have been happening all along, and allows you to take into account the new information thrown at you by the end of the movie. Infinity Chamber does just that. It’s a brilliant screenplay, written by a brilliant director, and it’s also a movie that really makes you wonder what might have just happened right in front of you. I even had a great chat with the writer and director of this film, and Pandorum.

The basic setup is that in the near future a coup, or an uprising of the people, is being suppressed by the state. And various leaders of the opposition are being locked away in chamber’s “manned” by AI units to keep the prisoners alive. It may also be that these chambers are designed to extract information out of the political prisoners…but it’s really not clear. Heck, none of it might be happening at all.

The movie basically stars one amazing actor (Christopher Soren Kelly – whom I have been chatting with about promoting his new upcoming film entitled The Tangle) and an AI character, and a woman – Gabby, who is mainly featured in flashbacks and dreams…I think? hahaha. And throughout the entirety of the movie it really requires you to consider carefully what it is that you think might be happening. Is it all a dream? Is he being tortured? Is this death? It’s an extraordinarily open-ended movie, in spite of being based in really only one main location. A futuristic holding cell.

Check it out, and then come join the conversation about the movie over here.
