I read the book altered states years ago. I loved it. Then I was at the video store one day and saw the movie on the shelf. I was so excited to know they made a movie out of it. However after watching the movie it seemed a bit cheesy and very low budget. You can definetly tell the author got alot of his ideas from reading Carlos Casteneda's Teaching of Don Jaun

The movie was fucking horrible.

Sure, it attempted to bring legitimate psychedelic research to the mainstream; but failed even more than I thought was possible.

The director even disassociated himself from the film.

It was horrable.

The guy gets physically transformed when tripping? WTF??? That is so gay. It doesn't happen in real life, and yet this was supposed to be a scientific movie?

Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

carlos' don juan ?
paddy chayavsky started writing "altered states" after getting ahold of a pre-publication manuscript of john lilly's _the center of the cyclone_ (which covers much of the time he was writing the NIMH monograph _programming and metaprogramming in the human biocomputer_ )

That is true! Can anyone name another other movie that was "loosely" based on the work of John C. Lilly?

Simon Posford used a sample from that movie in his track Shamanix, where the guy goes "The way *I* feel, I don't expect to sleep for a YEAR; I'm on FUCKING FIRE!"
