Movies you just can't seem to understand?

I watched "Curse of the Golden Flower" for the hundredth time today. And I love the movie, most parts I understand. But there's a lot I don't. Why poison the empress? Because of her affair? Why did his first wife get kicked to the curb? What happens after her son killed himself? Drives me nuts! Anyone else have any movies they just don't understand no matter how many times they watch it?

I'm convinced A Clockwork Orange has literally no meaning and was simply an excuse for gratuitous, frivolous violence. Gaggggg
