I like The Shooting so much I actually have it on bluray in a double-feature set with Ride in the Whirlwind.

It's not as trippy as the ones you mentioned so much as overbearingly bleak and dreamlike. not sure how to describe the story without spoiling it so I'll just post the Criterion description: In this eerie, existential western a bounty hunter and his sidekick are talked by a mysterious woman into leading her into the desert on a murkily motivated revenge mission.

Deadlock is another good one that's not talked about enough, and more on the trippy side. Worth watching for the Can soundtrack alone.

so being a big fan of Dead Man and having never seen any of these other movies I decided to check em out

watched Zachariah last night

The music was pretty fucking amazing but I'm kind of a dirty hippie and most of the festivals I go to are filled with bluegrass and psychedelic jams so that fit perfectly into my tastes

the movie itself, it had parts where I felt like it was getting really good, but always seemed to throw away the what could have been cool plot to show off the butthole lovins between Zachariah and Matthew

especially at the end, I thought it would have been way better if Matthew used the silver bullet he made Zachariah then stole off of his neck in the tussle to shoot himself when he was crying in the horse pen instead of just crying it out, getting on a horse, chasing Zachariah down, and start making out on horseback together boom roll credits

it was a really fun watch but besides the music I don't think I got the point

the crackers were cool though, I'd chill with them

Not a western but I think related, is the film The Long Goodbye (1973). It's a Phillip Marlowe story set in the 70s and has a lot in common with acid westerns. Most obviously it's set directly after the collapse of the hippy lifestyle and deals with a lot of the existential directionlessness and nihilism as acid westerns. It also subverts most of the detective film tropes. I'd say it's worth a watch if you enjoy acid westerns. Though really most period noir films have been a bit subversive and dark, so hey whatever.

Also it has a killer score.

I've only ever seen El Topo (good movie) and Dead Man (great movie) from this list. Will have to check out some of the others :)

One of my favorite Westerns, but in no way "acid".

That music? That environment? The emphasis on how weird and intense it was to be colonizing, and how vastly different and contradictory it all was, compared to UK culture and ideology, and how vastly different that is in itself along class divides.
Theres' a lot of spooky synchronicity and rumination stuff going on in the picture as a whole

That movie was a bit much for me. Couldn't stick with it after the first church scene. Looked it up on wikipedia and saw the whole rape thing too, and that just made me want to switch it off.
