7 good movies you can only watch once

The 1999 spooky film starring Bruce Willis as a child psychotherapist trying to heal a ghost-haunted boy (Haley Joel Osment) established M. Night Shyamalan's reputation for twist endings.

The Sixth Sense

Due to its superb yet harrowing Holocaust depiction, even film critics have avoided this seven-time 1993 Oscar winner from Steven Spielberg.

Schindler’s List

It's hard to see someone come apart, especially a movie character. Christian Bale reportedly shed over 27 kg for this 2004 film about an industrial worker seeking sleep and sanity. 

The Machinist

Precious is an “achingly authentic drama” that is as difficult to watch as it is to forget. The 2009 drama stars Gabourey Sidibe as the title character, an abused, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child and enrols in an alternative school 


The first viewing of this 1995 murder thriller starring Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Spacey, Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Pollak, and Stephen Baldwin has a “wow ending” that ruins any second viewing.

The Usual Suspects

David Lynch makes movies that people love or loathe. In this 1977 surreal horror film, Jack Nance plays Henry Spencer, a guy who falls in love and fathers a deformed child while having terrifying and vivid hallucinations.


Writer-director Lars von Trier makes films that are painful to watch and hard to film. Björk labeled Von Trier a sexist and fled the set of this 2000 drama about a lady who escapes gloomy reality through musical daydreams
