Hey /tv/, /mu/tant here. I know very little about film, as I have been, until now, only peripherally interested. However, I am looking to get into film, and am initially interesting in how the psychedelic aesthetic manifested in film. Can anyone recommend some "psychedelic" films?

Watch this.

this compilation probably is essential.

Otherwise, Maya Deren's shorts, Luis Buñuel, Man Ray especially, they're really known.
The whole avant-garde scene from this era is great.
For more recent movies, Toshio Matsumoto's Dogura Magura can interest you.
and Lynch's Rabbits

There are some really cool animated movies by René Laloux that are really weird but cool. Fantastic planets + the shorts he did with Topor are must see. Maybe Gwen, the book of sand, Fehérlófia, Belladonna of Sadness. Tekkon Kinkreet is really psych/oniric in the second part.
Also, Satoshi Kon's movies (especially Paprika I guess) too.

But yeah, The Holy Moutain is an awesome starting point.

Everyone up in here conflating surrealist and psychedelic
>>
Thank you to everyone who contributed! I now have an elementary list of films that should lead me deeper into film as an art.
>>
>>51089909
Surrealist = Unconscious-fueled art, related to psychoanalysis

Psychedelism = Drug-fueled art

It's kinda related, both are a form of representation of the Unconscious, drugs can allow it to express itself, etc.
A lot of surrealist writers or painters took drugs to try to enhance their perception. All they wanted was to discover the unexplored.

>>51089417
Eh, I'd leave Fando Y Lis off the list, it's just an incoherent mess compared to the rest of Jodowrosky's films.
>>
I can't believe nobody said Eraserhead yet

pic very related

>>51088834
>I know very little about film

you'll fit right in here
>>
>>51090313
Eraserhead is post-ironic neo-psychadelism, not surrealism.
>>
>>51090313
Lynch is pop-surrealism.
>>
Forgot to mention Dreams that Money Can Buy, there's a classic of the genre
>>
Sweet movie is kind of trippy

Salo, or the 120 days of sodom is pretty psychedelic and so it A Serbian Film

>>51088834
Only "Enter the Void" fits this I think. Nothing else even remotely comes close.
