* MindScrew: Not just the GainaxEnding, but a few brief, but glaringly noticeable shots such as [[spoiler: the underwater house shot signifying Jack's birth]] and [[spoiler: one very random scene in which the mother is floating and dancing in the front yard. Why? Because TrueArtIsIncomprehensible]]

* [[IWantToBeARealMan I Want My Sons To Be Real Men]]: Played with. At first, Mr. O'Brian plays this straight, such as trying to teach his kids how to fight. As the movie progresses, he starts to accept that he's doing it more for himself, and promises to be a better father.

A 2011 Creator/TerrenceMalick film, [[SpeculativeFiction equal parts a period piece, a family drama, and an existentialist meditation.]] It stars Creator/BradPitt as a strict, disciplinarian father in [[TheFifties Fifties]] Texas, with Creator/JessicaChastain as a kind, nurturing mother, newcomer child-actor Hunter [=McCracken=] as their son Jack, and Creator/SeanPenn as Jack in his adult years. Directed by reclusive director TerrenceMalick, the man behind ''Badlands'', ''Film/DaysOfHeaven'', ''Film/TheThinRedLine'', and ''The New World'', it is his fifth feature in a career spanning decades.
