    Might be a bit wierd in some peoples eyes but:

    Ninth gate is a classic.

    2001: a space odyssey.

    The truman show.

    Total recall.

    Apocalypse now.

    Pans labyrinth.

    2001 and Apocalypse are easily in my top 25 favs all time. Truman Show is cool too.

    “How did you know it to be a pod bay door?”
    “By finding resistance then gaining access.”
    “How gained you access?”
    “By asking Hal to open the pod bay doors. Please.”

    Even HAL had an allusion -- add one letter: HAL = IBM.

    I love movies and TV shows with an esoteric or supernatural theme to them.

    Constantine (TV show and movie)
    Supernatural
    Grimm
    Dresden Files (books are way better)

    I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming adaptation of Good Omens. And has anyone mention The Man Who Would be King yet?

    If we're tossing TV shows into it, Sleepy Hallow was full of occult (esoteric might be a stretch) content, including a LOT of stuff about Masons.

    Dune, particularly the first book, has a lot of kabbalistic techniques some of which later appeared in Star Wars

    One of my favorite movies. Although, I have to set some time aside to "recover" after watching it.
