Well of those Brakhage would certainly work, but what narrative films could enhance the mood?
some obvious classics:
DAZED AND CONFUSED
FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
MR. THANK YOU
THE THIN MAN (not too high though or it gets too hard to follow)
THRONE OF BLOOD
THE BIG CHILL
some modern goodies:
THE CRUISE <— underappreciated flick, v good when high
SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK
BEST IN SHOW
Enter the void
Dog Star Man
Last films by Lynch
Enter the Void.
The Holy Mountain.
Gah – Enter the Void is just awful!
And, no, I don’t care to elaborate! :P
Yolanda and the Thief
Scream and Scream Again
Las Year at Marienbad
Hercules Conques Atlantis
I Love Melvin
David’s choices are very good but watching most of those films stoned would drive me to some sort of cannabis psychosis.
I think any of these would make much more sense while under the influence:
The Manitou (1978)
The Visitor (1979)
You guys watch movies when you’re stoned?
The mark of a true cinephile.
It is there an Israeli film titled Losers! ?
Only hope it is as good as Lemon Popsicle 3.
Fellini – Juliet of the spirits. Any Fellini movie really.
Harold and Kumar, dumb and dumber, and stuff like that.
I trust you Brentos. I bet Jerry Lewis movies are good in that state as well.
My personal favorites:
Walkabout and The Man Who Fell to Earth
Or was it that I felt stoned after watching them…?
INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
I don´t know why it makes sense to go clubbing stoned, and doesn’t make sense watch a movie in your place stoned.
^one is a social thing and one is not.
I guess it’s how you feel when you’re stoned. :)
agree with Juliet Of The Spirits. that music is almost disturbing when baked :-0
2001 would be good at a theatre i guess, not at home.
When i used to smoke weed back in the day, i preferred to watch comedies with friends. e.g Cheech and Chong(Up In Smoke, Nice Dreams, Next Movie), Half Baked, How High, Dazed and Confused etc etc. just that kind of thing.
Pink Floyd’s The Wall
Crimes Of Passion
tried watching Oldboy stoned… that didnt work whatsoever… The Matrix i could watch all day baked
You should play a Blind Idiot God CD while watching this one.
Great movies I’m sure I enjoyed will stoned at least once…
2001, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (I was young, 16 and baked in my highschool film class when I first saw this film, stunned/stoned), L’age d’or, INLAND EMPIRE, Mulholloand Dr, Lost Highway, E.T, Annie Hall, The Party, Dr. Mabuse, Trouble in Paradise, The Band Wagon, Singin’ in the Rain, Fata Morgana, Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, The Royal Tenenbaums, Blue Velvet, Breathless, Being John Malkovich, Rosemary’s Baby, Touch of Evil, Videodrome, Targets, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Burn After Reading, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, My Winnipeg, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, A Matter of Life and Death, A Scanner Darkly, Spider, Exotica, Next Day Air, Shoot the Piano Player, Greenberg, Wavelength, Scream, The Thief of Bagdad, Angel Face, Menace 2 Society, Animal House, Swingers, JFK, Cloverfield, Spirited Away (most Miyazaki), Waking Life, Shadows, Last Night (Mckellar), Jackie Brown, Dazed and Confused, Katzelmacher,
Any Fellini also sounds right.
I don’t get stoned so I can’t offer specific advantages of one film over another. But, after watching it again last night, I feel like Judge Dredd would be a good pick.
