I love thrillers and crime-related movies because it makes you think. The plots are often great, and it leaves you excited even without the thrilling sound effects. Care to share ones from the early 2000s?

Early 2000's? Old? For me it's way before then. Tons of film noir from the 40's and 50's. Men with square jaws wearing hats and dames worth killing for. Hitchcock of course was a master of the psychological thrillers. Like Psycho! North by Northwest, The Birds. Many more.
But if it's post 2000 you want. There's some way offbeat psyco-sci-fi films that may interest you. Beyond the Black Rainbow is pretty damn weird and hard to figure what, why and how. And Under the Skin, is very freaky. Slow moving, but bizarre. And a Spanish film called Time Crimes will keep you wondering till the end.

You must be a fan of the genre, Rusty. I'm taking notes of those movies because I like what isn't mainstream. What is that one guy's name? M Night Shamalan? Or something like that? His stuff is out there. I like it.

Here's one that just makes the cut for old movies. Made way back in 2000. Memento. The protagonist wakes up to realize he's got tattoo's all over him, that are messages to the mystery why he can't remember his past. From then on the movie moves backward from that point to the reason why he can't remember.

One more called The Witch. About a new world family in early America that gets banished from the safety of the colony where they stake claim to a parcel of land next to a forest that harbors unsavory spirts. The family descends slowly into madness and possession of the malevolent entity. The Director Robert Eggers like Shamalan has a penchant for psychological drama.

Those are plenty of movies that I haven't come across yet. Thanks, Rusty. My watchlist is suddenly filled now. I searched Beyond the Black Rainbow, and the trailer got me feeling high. Just from that, I understand you when you say it was weird.

When did those Liam Nissan movies come out? The plotline of saving his daughter? Movies like that and the Bourne thrillers are my favorite types.
