I've done acid plently of times, I'm willing to bet more than you have. Tried DMT once and didn't care for the experience.

But what does that have to do with Enter the Void? If anything my experiences with psychedelics made me dislike the movie. It was trying to hard with everything it did from the first person to the death shit. I hate this word but if any movie is overly pretentious it's Enter the Void.

Now Koyaanisqatsi are Baraka were some powerful and visually amazing experiences while tripping. Enter the Void is like teenager bullshit

where can i read more about the concepts discussed in waking life? which philosophers in particular deal with these issues? free will, lucid dreaming & the idea that we exist within someone else's consciousness were particularly intriguing to me

It's a nice little film and especially the art is impressive but don't pretend it has any depth.
>>
>>64673379
as a film it's pretty shallow but don't pretend the schizophrenic messages of the film are not deep.

It's been awhile, please remind me of it. That he's actually dead? The solipsism in the dialogue with the theatre girl? What do you mean?
>>
>>64673379
>>64673343
Well it has depth in that they talk about philosophical stuff, that could potentially be consciousness expanding

Just google the shit you´re interested in, a lot of people have had smart thoughts about it
>>
>>64673343
Look into "Kashmir Shaivism", Indian Tantric philosophy. But be careful... once you enter the rabbit hole, there's no turning back. It's very hard to get into at first but if you're determined you'll find your answers. Reality is weirder than you think.

Yeah but on a super super superficial level to the point where it's almost pretentious with no content. I regard it as a kind of Sophie's world for adults, but it's really easy to watch it and think it has some kind of deep philosophical point when it's just a bunch of modern theories and text strung together for 90 minutes.

Jodorowsky was pretty much just throwing random shit at a bible-themed wall, he even admits it in some of his interviews. He was just making a weird thing for people to look at, sort of like Eraserhead. What the Holy Mountain comes out to is basically an unfunny random-humor sortof strange monty python movie. It very much has the python feel too it, which isn't a good thing for a movie that's ostensibly something influential and meaningful.

It's not entirely a terrible movie(it has some pretty great scenes actually) but when it comes to the criteria of this thread it's garbage.
