gordian - (GORE-dee-un; adj.) 1. Hopelessly complicated, convoluted, or confusing; 2. ALMOST Hopelessly complicated, convoluted, or confusing; 3. (loosely) Extremely difficult either to understand (if concepts) or to do (if actions).  
(From the Gordian knot of ancient Greek history: An insoluble knot used by a man named Midas [no, a different Midas] to tie his father's ox-cart to a post. His father's name was Gordias (and probably still is). Depending upon which story you've heard, only he who was destined to rule the world (or just Asia Minor) could untie it. Alexander the Great---as intense a combonologist as a strategist---simply cut the thing with his sword. See "Anagordian." .... Current scholarship, btw, suggests that Alexander was actually not attempting to fulfill any prophecies (indeed, the prophecies, says modern research, appear to have been invented and interpolated into the story some time long after the event, but was, instead, trying to discover the knot's structure (much more like the ardent student of Aristotle he was than the sly conqueror the popular stories make him out to be). Some histories suggest that Alexander didn't even cut the knot at all, but chopped away the cart and hitching post, sliding the knot off the wood to expose the ends of the bark-fiber cord with which the knot had been tied, so that he could unravel this marvel of knotted-ness.)

e.g., "So, whose flashbacks were the true ones? The bald terrorist? The chick with the Mohawk? The dead oil-well worker? or Captain Studly Sunglasses?" "Well, none of them is completely true, and none is completely false." "So this was a ten-dollar, two-and-a-half-hour lesson in points of view?!" "Yes. Yes, that's it exactly!" "Well, the lesson was lost on me: That film is more Gordian than the Congressional Record."
