Movies that disturbed and confuse me!

I'll probably add more later but for now this will have to do cause I haven't seen a lot of disturbing or confusing movies. I know from other's opinions that there are some that I've never seen, so I will probably see them then mention them in this list.

I saw this movie when it first came out and I forgot what had happened in it until just recently. There is scenes in the movie that just creeped me out and really made me feel disturbed.

I know some people think it's not scary, it's not a good movie or that it's funny. Which I don't see what is so funny about it but every time I see it, it freaks me out...still. And I'm 26, I first saw this when I was 13. There are some scenes in the movie that I just can't really watch cause they are just too disturbing to watch.

I've never really watched the Rambo series, but I saw the beginning of this and I just couldn't watch the rest of it. Seeing children being blown up, no offense, doesn't make my mind ease. I'm sure it's a great movie, but that scene definitely disturbed me.
