Jacob's Ladder was a movie with movie enhancement requirements as well.

Also, the song and dance number in Gamer, to speak of a more recent movie, was very inspired to say the least.

I have to second KungPow.  Pink Floyd's The Wall is a totally different matter.  An friend of mine is a recovering drug addict, and one of the many tales of his misspent youth was of the year he and his running buddies had The Wall playing on their VCR non-stop.  The player was set to auto-play, so it would automatically rewind the tape and replay it when the tape ran out.  This continued until the tape finally wore out and snapped.

Apocalypse Now has far too much real world style violence for a proper trip movie. It's loaded with total buzz-kills.  The Wall should take it's rightful place at the top.

Blue Velvet anyone? Another drug filled Dennis Hopper!

I don't think this article was well thought out.

karas1, weren't the majority of Sid & Marty Kroft productions indicative of drug trips?  Wonderbug, Sigmund and the Sea Monster.  Hell, HR Puff-n-Stuff had freakin' "Puff-n-Stuff" in the name!

Yeah, and The Bugaloos.  But Lidsville was the trippiest.

Kung Pow and Wyldstaar have it right with The Wall.

I actually did watch Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas while under the affects of plain old alcohol.  It wasn't planned that way, just happened. 

Back when I was in the military and based out of the Gulfport/Biloxi MS area, there was a theater that served beer.  Instead of stadium seating it was flat with tables and chairs and they would bring you pitchers of beer and food.  I really only remember getting bombed there once.  The movie in question was the Mario van Peebles Highlander, think it was 3.  While I doubt the alcohol enhanced the movie, I'm sure it acted as numbing agent to what was assuredly a crappy crappy movie.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across The 8th Dimension is one that NEEDS "enhancements" for the general population to understand what te hell is going on. But for me, it is a GREAT movie to watch while bombed out of your mind! Hell, the title alone is enough to cause seizures in most "normal" people! LOL!!

I agree the Wall needs to be on this list as should Heavy Metal and and Donny Darko

I'm really suprised the original, (I think) drug-tripping movie isn't on the list: 2001: A Space Odyssey. It was notorious for acid dropping hippies to literally go into orbit in the theaters. The original movie posters for it said "The Ultimate Trip."

Monkeyfoot, you beat me to it.  I actually had a college film professor a couple years back show 2001 in class.  After the film, he said "Now if you really want to understand what was going on in the last 15 minutes, go rent it, go home and watch it...not...straight (as in you need to drop some LSD, smoke some pot, etc.)"  He's still one of my favorite professors.
