to forcibly expose a person to an idea or lesson that leaves he or she, dazed and awestruck, to go through a bout of depression that lasts a variable amount of time in which they question existence, religion, and what they themselves would do in hypothetical situations. Usually the said person will ponder these questions at all hours of the night because they can not sleep and will end up finding only a few answers/revelations. Once of which may include that "if" is the most evil word in the English language. Eventually he or she recovers & usually feels a mixture of a hate & love toward the mind-fucker. Hate for their mental/emotional anguish and love for the perspective they gained and the lesson they learned.

The movie Vanilla Sky was a total mind fuck. Now I don't even know if I'm actually living my own life. Man, my head hurts from thinking about it!

A cinematic technique that uses misdirection to lead to an ending that is at first glance completely unexpected or contradictory, but is coherent and reasonable given hindsight and careful observation of the clues presented.

Classic examples include “Memento”, “The Usual Suspects”, "Fight Club", and “The Sixth Sense”.
That movie was such a mindfuck!

A process of raping your intelligence; never accompanied by a pre-lubricant; doesn't leave you with an endorphine high and craving a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich or a cigarette. Rarely are dinner and drinks bought for you before or after the act; most often tried on an unsuspecting victim,penetration has less friction; the perpetrator will rarely call you the next day; A passive-agressive way to get their money shot, no happy ending for you.
