10 Incredible Films to Watch When You’re Stoned
Cannabis and movies go hand in hand like tacos and tequila. Being high can help you immerse yourself in a story and get lost in the visuals. Although all movies are fun to watch while blazed, there are some movies that rise above the rest. We’ve compiled 10 of our favorite stoner films to share with you. We’ve chosen a range of genres and vibes, but all of them are sure to take you on an adventure.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The obscurity of the story can only be topped by the abstract direction of the filming. A couple undergoes a procedure to forget about each other, but they end up piecing things together and finding their way back to each other through memories. This one is a wild ride.
This is a 1970’s French psychedelic sci-fi stop-motion. If that isn’t enough to pull you in, the plot will catch you; it follows a boy on a planet full of aliens that keeps humans as pets. It’s a great option for those nights you’re ready to sink into the couch and get lost in a movie.
It may seem overhyped, but the lively adaption of the 1925 book makes for an excellent stoned movie. The excessive and elaborate costumes, characters and music will blow you away.
Wizard of Oz
Okay there’s a catch with this one. You may have heard the legend that The Wizard of Oz syncs up perfectly to the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon. We’re here to tell you it’s true and you need to give it a try. Set up the movie and the album, start the movie, then start the album after the MGM lion’s third roar. The synchronization (that the band swears is a coincidence) will blow you away.
Widely know as ‘the worst film ever made’, The Room is a hilarious experience that probably can only be enjoyed while intoxicated. The plot barely exists and the acting is unbelievably bad. If you’re looking to be befuddled and tremendously amused, give The Room a view.
If you like goblins, puppets, magic, or David Bowie, this is the movie for you. The main character Sara has 13 hours to solve a labyrinth to save her baby brother from the goblin king. It’s wacky and whimsical and easy to get lost in.
Wes Anderson and Roald Dahl come together in this stop motion feature about a fox who has to help his community survive the attacks of the local farmers. The dry humor, unique animation and mildly creepy imagery makes for an interesting watch.
Alice in Wonderland
This one may be obvious but it’s too good to skip. Everything about Alice in Wonderland is weird, from the talking flowers to smoking caterpillar, and it makes for the perfect high movie.
Across the Universe
Across the Universe is a Beatle’s musical based in the 1960’s, centered around a romance between Jude and Lucy. 34 original Beatle’s compositions are included in the film, and the vocals are out of this world. The story begins slowly but quickly picks up and turns into a drug fueled exploration of love, life, war, and art.
This 1940’s classic Disney film pairs classical Western music with cartoon interpretations. The animations range from abstract expression to traditional Disney cartoon story telling. It’s easy to get lost in the beautiful pairing of art and music.
