Hey there!

Got any great movies/documentaries to recommend watching while tripping?
Thinking of taking 1 or 2 tabs today and combining that with some good MJ at home.

To me, Totoro is the quintessential magical realism movie. Totoro is one of my top Miyazaki.

If anyone seeing this thread is interested in watching something while on lsd, i highly recommend elfen lied. Typically you'd watch that anime and be put off by how cheesy it seems, but it's actually genious. Every line is amazing.

The show is described as a psychological thriller or something, but the truth is that it's a comedy, a comedy about two main characters from a hentai universe being placed in a psychological drama anime universe. It's really interesting, you're sitting there watching it, listening to the cringe lines and then you realize that's being done on purpose. It's weird that everywhere you look it says that it's a psychological drama or thriller, that's just because of the gore, but it's a comedy and it's so masterfully done, this hidden comedy. There's no other anime out there like it either, nothing else like it exists, it's just this hidden gem that gets dismissed. If you've already seen it, it's worth a second viewing.

Just look at the intro, this anime was meant to be watched while on lsd.

Fear and Loathing is perfect for lsd. Same with the Holy Mountain, though that can get a little intense.

Heard really good things about Baraka. Personally recommending Microcosmos.

I thought LSD would be shit for movies... Idk about mushrooms/4-AcO-DMT. DXM is amazing for movies on the 2nd plat, I haven't found anything better. I watched a movie on DXM and a 50ug LSD the other night and the LSD distorted it way too much. Idk if DPH would add anything to the experience. I never add DPH to my music and darkness trips but maybe it would make a movie a bit darker and the sound a bit deeper.

4-aco and shrooms are sedating unlike just about every other psych out there, so if you're stuck at home tripping due to snow or w/e, they work great for movies. That being said, your ability to follow a plot will undoubtedly be severely diminished, so choose your media wisely

This. Not a good time to watch Momento.

Check out spirited away if you havent seen it even if you are not an anime fan.

I feel like LSD lasting so long makes it a bit better for movies in the sense that you wouldn't be dedicating half your trip to a movie if you choose to watch one. But maybe that's my perpetual indecisiveness talking.

Also I haven't tested it tripping but I have to imagine Redline would be a fun time. Certainly great sober and with weed.

Samsara, Waking Life, Fear and Loathing, Lego Movie. Check out This is Not Happening series from comedy central, it's on Youtube. A lot of the stories are about tripping and they are hilarious. Watch the Dark Side of the Rainbow. It's The Wizard of Oz synced the Dark Side of the Moon.

It's also fun to watch planet earth or high definition nature documentaries with the sound muted while playing your favorite album. You can watch slugs fucking to Shpongle.

2001 space odysey
waking life
the fountain
akira
the matrix
nausicaa
XRA if you don't mind dark but lighthearted humor
Koe No Katachi
Uncut.Gems.2019
fightclub
first disney movie

All of these are interesting, but I'd say these are most for tripping:

waking life
the fountain
the matrix
nausicaa
Akira (dark, but if you've been far, it may have been much darker so instead of being dark this just seems like a beautiful artistic tale about something much darker which in turn makes it very beautiful and good). Twelve Monkeys is trippy and IMO not gloomy, I like the actor I guess. Animatrix is a bit dark, but beautiful in the end, so if you can handle that you might enjoy it.

For documentaries which you can watch without sound:
planet earth
frozen planet

Poorer quality, but certainly food for thought and very trippy if you think about it is Prestige
Vanilla sky is trippy, but a bit gloomy. Apocalypse now is also gloomy but quite interesting.

If you want hollywood entertainment that is not as horribly bad as the new marvel movies:
Phantom Menace
Revenge of the Sith
First startrek movie
Edge of Tomorrow

Many decent movies made from 80s up to 2010, even very enjoyable, but dunno if worthy of psys unless low dose which is whatever. You have to take decent doses to get lost in a film.
If you don't mind very dark vibes you may enjoy A Scanner Darkly, which is one of the few movies that made the book justice I think. And on that note you can check out all PKD adoptions to cinema. Adjustment Bureau is a nice romantic film.



Many of these may not be a good idea on psys, but some interesting films while sober or maybe even tripping. But I'd probably rather look at trees blowing in the wind and the sun shining and the clouds flowing rather than these things. But the Fountain and Nausicaa are very lovely movies, very archetypal (which immediately makes them trippy) and very lighthearted and just amazing pieces of art. I do psys so rarely now, that I'd rather listen to music and watch baraka or some nature documentary instead. Ashes and snow in the same vein. Indeed in all of cinema very few movies are actually worth your time on psys, very few movies are made from the heart and made REALLY REALLY fucking well. Making a good movie as as hard as making a good story which is extremely complex and insane but to add to that you have to also be in the money and have the industrial skills of henry ford or something to actually produce it. And there are many more dimensions to take care of than in a book which already has infinite dimensions to take care of and if you miss one you just blow the whole movie. Unlike music. There is quite a bit of music straight from the heart through the ears into your heart that is so epicly good that you may as well call it perfect in it's own right... I have so much good music it blows my fucking head off. In terms of quantity of quite high quality movies actually made from the heart with good acting you may find a lot of them around 2000 and after 2010 it's like barely one good movie made apart from some pretty cool but not that noteworthy animations. Well some disney stuff is pretty nice I guess...

Don't mind that this following list includes some rather meh movies, they are still better than most anything in the 2010s onwards.


Lawrence
Aviator
Prestige
American Beauty
Yesterday
before i fall
Big Lebowski
incredibles 2

Excuse me:*
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans may not be for tripping but the most beautiful performance from cage IMO. Many Kubricks movies are interesting, but I wouldn't watch Clockwork or the army one on psys. Eyes wide shut is a great movie tho. Nothing made me laugh and smile more than Waking life though on psychedelics, that was a bit gloomy, but in the right mood it made me so joyful to watch it actually. Great movie in many ways, but not for everyone and not in every case for sure.
Primer is interesting and I don't agree that you are bound to have trouble following the plot on psys. You may have to pause sometimes to digest everything, but you can actually follow it much more than sober or at least in much more detail. It may take effort, but if the movie is good the curiosity will take care of that.

BTW Koe No Katachi is a great story and the drawing is the most beautiful of probably any anime I've ever seen. It's emotional and real IMO.

BTW Am I the only one surprised at the amount of movies I've seen (almost all in the last 30 years that are noteworthy and high budget) and the amount of them that were actually good and even smaller portion of those that were actually lighthearted and cheerful instead of gloomy?

But to recap: The Fountain and Nausicaa are very worthy and quite universally great for any person in any mood. Except if you take psys purely for entertainment. The fountain is about death, but it's not dark at all IMO, very warm, very human.

Ya know man I've disagreed with you a great many times and I'm about to now, BUT those are all solid choices . And while we may have argued in the past this large showing of your taste tells me that we would have been friends, maybe even good friends, if we had ever met in person. All your suggestions are golden sir and if we disagreed on scientific points I guess it was differing points of unproven conjecture anyways. Many hugs to you for all of those and to anyone reading who hasn't seen anything listed, fucking WATCH them well. I will say if you're willing to explore sorrow and suffering in a broken system watch A Clockwork Orange, it is still VERY relevant today, and on psys you'll feel it in your soul in a way very few willunderstand.

Hey, thanks man, mutual respect. Certainly not all of them are really worthy of watching for everyone especially on psys, but there certainly are some interesting movies in that list. Talking of interesting movies I really loved The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Again maybe not for psys, but a great movie nevertheless I'd say.

legitimately it's really hard to explain what this does to you if you suspend disbelief and take it for face value while on acid, but I definitely feel it, about half my friends do and if you look through the comments every so often you'll find one saying how amazing it is to watch while tripping

it's unironically a postmodern masterpiece

Fair enough, I should have specified I meant better on its own merits without the context of tripping. Speaking of, I found reading good books to be pretty great on psychedelics such as the last episode of Ulysses and the mind-melting Molly Boom and the end of Point Counterpoint. How do you guys feel about it? Probably sort of like I do: a kind of equanimity; if it's something you enjoy normally, you'll enjoy it when tripping.

Gotta agree, that movie is at best for half glancing while baked with good friends. At worst it's archive material and not for actually watching. I understand there are many movies made these days that may seem far more shallow and unimaginative and that stuff too is solely archive material, but that mountain fluff is just whatever man. I'd probably find more significant patterns and ideas in random clouds than in that movie.

Find a good ant movie instead

Or something really nice and chill is dick proenneke Alone in the Wilderness (2004) and second part (2011)

If you want a fictional movie... the machinist is interesting, but not a happy movie per se.
