Movies to Shroom-n-see
    #626640 - 05/11/02 10:33 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I want to get your suggestions for this. I took notes on most of the ones that got erased. Wave Twister ... Fantasia ... American Beauty ... Half-Baked ... Yellow Submarine .. Spiderman ... I know I'm forgetting some. I'm in the middle of Lawrence of Arabia right now --I know it's lame to watch a movie in parts but this is a long one. It's pretty good. Too bad I'm watching it on my girlfriend's postage-stamp sized T.V..
It's really beautiful.

Lawrence of Arabia is highly recommended --not necessarily to do drugs and watch but definitely for an experience of higher consciousness. It is very timely (with the Mideast conflicts) and very spiritual. I couldn't help but think of John Walker Lynne. It is gorgeously photographed (evident on a postage stamp-sized screen) and wonderfully acted. Peter O'Toole, Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn and others deliver some high quality
performances. Check it out! By the way, I'm aware that Afghanistan is not in the Middle-East (it's in Asia). Still, there are many parallels.

Lawrence of Arabia is sweet. The walks across the desert with the sun in the background are dreamy.

Seven Samurai - Gorgeous black & white cinematography, world-class filmmaking.

Sawdust and Tinsel - Just be high for the opening shots, as the caravan moves through the rain, creaking and dripping. Then they put up the tent in an ecstacy of billowing canvas. There are some incredibly intense moments in this movie, notably the long sequence, shot silent-movie style, when the clown's wife bathes in front of the soldiers. This is great filmmaking!!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Inspired, intensely cinematic moviemaking. Just about everything in this movie is right on -- the cinematography, the music...

Los Olividados - Could be Luis Bunuel's finest film. Not-so-nice ragamuffins on the streets of Mexico City. Mostly naturalistic, but it trips off into hardcore surrealist moments periodically, to powerful effect. Trust me -- this is really a good movie.

V.G. But Not Necessarily Shroomy:

The Maltese Falcon - Exquisite chamber music by a gifted ensemble in the hands of an inspired director. I've seen this movie I don't know how many times, and I never get tired of it.

I've seen Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Los Olividados, and the Maltese Falcon. They are all excellent. I prefer Asphalt Jungle as a John Huston noir picture. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is great. Havn't seen it in a long time. Los Olividados is interesting (as all Bunuel Films are). I will check it out again. I remember it being very realistic with a few strange surrealistic sequences. Basically it seemed to be a realistic drama about the streets. Very brutal. Thanks for the other recommendations.

A newer addition would have to be The Lord of the Rings. God, I can't wait till all 3 of those films get released on DVD, then I can spend an entire trip lost in another world

Thanks for the Smack Report. I'll review your comments when I have time to sit down and ponder them.
I don't like Cruise or Speilberg but I DO like Philip K. Dick.

This is on a way different type of ........

Pee Wee's Big Adventure~ It's hilarious and me and my friends run around acting like peeWee for awhile after.....

Another is "nice Dreams" where PeeWee plays a flipped out schitzo coke head.....classic:)

Other favorites are "book of shadows" "blackmale" "very bad things" "requiem for a dream" "hellraiser-inferno" "natural born killers" "fallen" and "lost highway"

I was surprised at his ability to play a serious role in "blow"...also a very good film.

I missed "mystery men" on purpose though

waking life is a goodmovie. the way the animation is done and the things they talk about makes it really tripy.

Recently I had an idea. Have any of you heard of those educational programs that the BBC made like Walking With Dinosaurs, Walking With Beasts and something on Space with Sam Neill as the narrator? They all have amazing computer graphics, and I saw that my local video store has them on DVD. I just might try one of these on a trip. Great, because there's no plot, just amazing graphics to go WOW at.

Yep. I loved it. Cool stuff. I especially liked the last scene. It's like an overview of human consciousness.

Interesting. I'll keep it in mind. Never even heard of it (surprise, surprise) but it sounds really cool.
