Re: Any good mind bending psychedelic type movies on Netflix?
What did ya think of the film, OP? It threw me for a loop the first time I watched it, the way it was filmed was really intense, I thought. Gave me an omniscient, yet creepy, type of feeling to watch.

A lot of titles I haven't seen yet were suggested on this thread, will definitely check some of them out, myself. happydance

Hey there. Sorry for the late response, I forgot about this thread.

Enter the Void was a damn classic, or I should say is.... Damn, I loved it and do recommend it to anyone who can tolerate graphic independent films.

I suggest to watch DMT: The Spirit Molecule documentary first to get an idea of what the main character of 'Enter the Void' goes through.

Anyway, thanks for asking and again, my apologies for the late response.

Did they explain in Enter the Void the idea of the pineal gland as the seat of the Soul, and that DMT has been detected there? If so, then I have to see that movie.

The friend of the main character who suggests DMT does dabble into that understanding as well as 'the Tibetan book of the dead'

But mind you, not a lot of that insight was focused on in the movie.

To answer your question though, yes, it is brought up.

It's a powerful flick, if you can have the patience to sit through a one of a kind type directed film. Definitely not for the modern day cgi theater type folk, lol.

No worries, and...my pleasure!

It was one of those films that definitely changed my perspective on things for at least a few hours after I watched it, OP. Yep, it does have some graphic parts, for sure, so anyone who would be uncomfortable might want to take that in to consideration before watching...but, it's a good film, IMHO. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, OP, I will check out the documentary you mentioned, as well.

Dontbeafraid: Good questions, it's been a few months since I saw the film, I can't remember if that topic was addressed, specifically; but, the film is full of nuance, and even if it doesn't give a clear answer to your questions, I think there's a lot, perspective-wise, to glean from it.

The only Aronofsky film on Netflix right now is 'This Film is Not Yet Rated'

Was an awesome documentary tho, for anyone who hasn't seen it.

I am surprised no one has brought attention to this one. FYI, Memento is AWESOME. I bought it after watching it. It is one of those movies you watch a second or third time to catch all the things you missed the first time because you didn't know what to look for.

Ah, great film! I knew of some of the places it was filmed in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. Very visceral film, but then again, a lot of his stuff, is!

Some of my favorites off the top of my head are:

The Fountain
Black Swan
Melancholia
Enter the Void
Donnie Darko
The Red Violin
The Great Happiness Space (documentary)
Dark Days (documentary)
Lost in Translation
Dark City
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Ink
Let the Right One In
Equilibrium
What Dreams May Come
The Mothman Prophecies
Vanilla Sky
Sunshine
Solaris

I still have a lot of films to see, though. www.paracinema.net has some good articles and suggestions, now and then, I check in sometimes when my list is getting low for new ideas. flower

Re: Any good mind bending psychedelic type movies on Netflix?
Problem we see with the online streaming portion of Netflix, is that movies tend to disappear just when I'm ready to view them. So, I basically juggle between netflix, amazon, itunes, and a few others. Found a nice app on the iphone called DiscovrMovies that helps show similar movies if you like one type. Not that this helps show what's available on netflix (or any particular service), but it does a better job than netflixs 'if you liked this, you'll like these' selection.

I'm guessing that Netflix is mostly Hollywood garbage. They don't let you look at their catalogue until you pay...

It mentions "Sandy Hook" in the dialogue near the start of the movie. Learned of it from a thread here on GLP earlier.

"Altered States"

 Quoting: ru1im2


Dark City is awesome. Donny Darko is interesting. However, Altered States is the best film I've seen recommended so far on this thread. I believe it's based on the true story of Dr. John Lilly. I'm shooting from the cuff here and going on memory here so don't hold me to this but I believe my recollection is accurate. Also not recommended so far is The Serpent & The Rainbow, which I know for a fact is based on a true story. I like some of the voodoo recommendations made here and plan to dig them up later tonight. An outstanding thread here! Everybody weigh in! 5* for you OP for getting it started.
