Acting
    #1356619 - 03/07/03 07:37 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Ever since I started getting stoned, I've been noticing more and more about 'good' actors. Like, when a really good performer comes on, its not so much that they are changing themselves to fit that role, it's more like they are just pulling back layers of they're own psyche. Exposing bits and pieces to us during performances of their inner soul. Their inner child if you will. So acting isn't really trying to 'act', its really just being more real. Any thoughts, guys?

Interesting. When im stoned and i watch movies, they seem extraordinarily fake. My awareness picks up on little things and the movie seems shallow and silly. Sometimes its the actors and other times just the way the scenes go back and forth between speakers in a dialogue. I have yet to see a good movie whilst stoned. I become a super-critic.

Peace

You should check out punch drunk love. That had some 'interesting' acting that you really only pick up on while stoned.

I love watching movies when I am stoned. I just love watching the plot unfold and how the characters are reavealed to us. What I like about movies is that each movie is its own world. Pure and simple. The good scriptwriters realize this and come up with some AMAZING movies. Basically, they come up these different personalities. They come up with the setting where it all happens, and they put the personalities in it. They come up with an initial conflict or spark that starts everything off. From there, the movie writes itself, because the characters naturally move the story along, according to who they are, their previous life experiences, and their reaction to life and the events in the movie.
I think writing scripts for movies is the ultimate career oppurtunity for us shroomers, because we understand the way the world works, and the way people work. I know I could come up with 20 basic story ideas in 10 minutes that I could see being a hit movie if it came out today. The job title should be "Creator". I think all of us on here could fufill the title "Creator".
Well, I'll leave with those thoughts.
Peace.

P.S. Some good movies I think to watch while stoned would be Goldmember, Men In Black II, The Mothman Prophecies (especially this one), and Shallow Hal. Watch for what I was talking about.

So you're saying film-makers get to play God?

If so, nice premise :smile:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Cannabis has this effect with me aswell. Isn't that interesting? I find that I am a much better judge of acting skills when I am stoned. This goes for real life too... I feel like I can tell when people are being genuine and when they are "faking" happiness/laughter/aggression etc.

It's this quality of being stoned that led me to give away my TV. 90% of the actors on TV are TERRIBLE. It just looks like a bunch of people in a studio pretending to interact.

To me a good actor becomes the character he is playing. He feels the emotions that he is trying to portray.

I've always wondered what it is about weed that allows you to perceive acting more accurately. I wonder what mechanism in the brain that cannabis interacts with that produces this effect.

Within the world of the movie, they are God. They created everything. Everything is to their design. That's what I love so much about movies. hehe
Peace.

i think ...lol weed will make you realize what your doing wrong sometimes but when you get un stoned you forget it and because you smoked weed... when your sober you cant recall what you learned, and attempts to rectify your actions are somewhat inhibited. not to say thats always how it is! but mostly for me... thats how it is. like i had realized why some things had been fucked up in my life, and why i was being dilliusional about some things.... but "i already done and forgot"

I just watched some comedy while high the other day and I haven't laughed so hard in a while! Everything is so much funnier while high. :smile:

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
