Some movies are better when you're under the influence


Like the characters in the film, it seems like you should be under the influence to really enjoy the movie.

Other movies that I would put into this category:

Pink Floyd's The Wall
Natural Born Killers
Altered States

Does anyone have any other movies to add?

reply

The Holy Mountain. Though you can still enjoy it while NOT under the influence, there are many times it seems like the movie was made specifically to be watched in an altered state.

Some movies are also better with a brain and an imagination.

What a great idea! Next time I dust off my bottle of absinthe, I'll sip it while watching Gothic. I could probably crank out some beautiful poetry with that combination. I'm actually looking forward to that.

actually the drug of choice for the Romantic poets was opium, not the drink absinthe

and for the record, the scene with Mary running around the house in a nightmarish state is pretty accurate to what taking opium is like :)

that being said, the feeling of absinthe would work nicely too :)

I discovered this movie in a dollar bin at a drug store about 5 or 6 years ago... it is one of my absolute all time favorite movies. I recently watched it high for the first time and it was mind blowing.
