What do you mean by "make you think"? There are plenty of movies out there that do that, what particular type of thinking do you want to do Some titles that come to mind:

Momento
Gattaca
12 Monkeys
Ninth Configuration
Donnie Darko
Jacob's Ladder
The Game

Ignore the DVD's cover; the cover makes no sense.

Memento and Identity were great, I enjoyed Frequency also but it may not be the kind you are looking for, only a little bit of thinking is involved
