      Movies that deal with psychological aspects of the characters have brought us some of the best films in recent memory. Here's just my paltry list to add, hope it helps.

      Fight Club
      Being There (older movie with Peter Sellers, I believe, but still a real treat)

      I'll post more if I think of them, but for some reason right now my brain is running dry. Happy hunting!

      That may contain psychological themes, but it confuses and combines two very serious mental illnesses, perpetuating misconceptions of both.

        it's also a big ole piece of crap!

        Almost all of the movies in my 100 Incredible Moves Series are psychological.

        Check out Dead Again and Jacob's Ladder and Pi and Das Experiment and Altered States and Memento and Straw Dogs

        and my new fav Sleuth w/ Jude Law & Michael Caine.

    Near all movies that are based on characters are a study
    of psychology. Alfred Hitchcock or try the 'The Shining' (1980) Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall.

    Why not "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"? it is a romance too, so you have both romance and psychological. Starring Jim Carrey. you have been warned!

    "well, what about silence of the
    lambs?????????????????" What about it. Personally I didn't learn much about the psychology of this sort of person, although I would recomend the movie for other reasons.

    well yes, i agree with you.thnkx for ur reference. i found another one. STAY(2005). good movie. i have got its DVD.why not check it out????

               sometimes i feel that the person who deals with psychological movies must be a mentally disordered or neatly ordered person.what u think??? u know, what they can think, they can put it in screen. i mean, get the stars to do the job.

    Momento, Vanila sky, Arlington road, sixth sense, i could go on but the list would be endless, like knolyourself said, any film about a character is psychological based. Leon is a good one, the mind of a hitman and a 13 yr old girl who wants to be a hitman (or should that be Hit-person??) and their developing friendship (and in the French Directors cut, almost romance) Very good film, one of, if not the first film with Natalie Portman in it.

    Suppose you might narrow things by psychological subjects. For instance the psychology of salesmanship like 'Tin Men' or 'Glengarry Glen Ross'. A great psychology of psychology is the brittish miniseries
    'the singing detective'. Think it is 6 hours. The more the better in this case.

    According to me, Basic Instinct 1 & 2 are really good psychological thriller movies.

    These movies show what happens when the darker side of human nature is uncovered.

    "Lamhe" a Bollywood movie of eighties starring Anil Kapoor has a lot of psychological input.

    "Proof" is a fantastic stage play, and a pretty darned good movie.  (Especially if you liked "A Beautiful Mind!)
