The Best Movies To Watch While Stoned Out Of Your Mind!

12.5.2014 | By |

With Danish director Lars Von Trier revealing that he made almost all his films under the influence and the New York Times having endorsed the legalization of marijuana in 2014, it’s only time before “weed” becomes legal in all 50 US states. When a major newspaper like the Denver Post creates a website called The Cannabist to report all things on “pot,” you know there are some major changes coming to our country. We imagine soon an FM morning radio show dedicated to the art of “blazing grass” – wait and see.

Because of the proliferation and relaxation on “ganja” laws, we thought it was time to create a new article dedicated to the union of film and marijuana. “Hash” enhances the appreciation of arts and culture to levels usually never experienced. Movies, in particular, seem to be the preference of choice when “stoned”. As most of you who already smoke “weed” understand, one of the favorite pastimes of stoners is to watch movies, but it seems that there is a difficulty in choosing the right film to see at the peak moment of being “baked”. The process of filtering or sifting through an immeasurable volume of movies can result eternal, but here at ShowBizCafe.com, we’ve chosen to highlight an assortment of them into three categories – LMMFAO, MINDCRUSHERS and PSYCHEDELIC CARTOONS. Why? When one is usually “zooted,” one either wants to laugh hysterically, watch something so beautiful and so profound, you’ll think it changed your life and for some bizarre reason, seeing dark, mature-themed cartoons elicits the nostalgia of childhood combined with the brooding consciousness within all of us.

We hope you enjoy the list and before you begin reading our curated selections, a disclaimer – we don’t pretend to know all of “The Best Movies To Watch While Stoned Out Of Your Mind,” so we’ll be leaning on you, our readers, to point out the “masterpieces of the high” that we might have missed.

MINDCRUSHERS

Waking Life
Synopsis: Linklater is the shit. This is our all-time favorite film and one of the most cerebral movies you will ever see. It’s full in insane amounts of mindfuck insights, I mean, just the plot alone says it all – A man shuffles through a dream meeting various people and discussing the meanings and purposes of the universe.

The Holy Mountain

A surrealistic film with input from Salvador Dalí, director Luis Buñuel presents stark, surrealistic images that shock the viewers including the slitting open of a woman’s eye and a dead horse being pulled along on top of a piano. Obviously open to interpretation – from deep meanings to it all meaning absolutely nothing – it is certain that this short (17 minutes) film presented something new in the cinema of its day.

When he is informed that some American named “Prisney” (or something) has already done it, he decides to do his own version, using an orchestra comprising mostly old ladies and an animator he’s kept locked in a dungeon.

9

It is about a secret military project which endangers a Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath that only two kids and a group of psionics can stop.

Rango
Synopsis: A chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it.
