Flicks: Canon of film psychedelia

The Taste of Cinema blog describes 25 psychedelic films “worth your time”, with classics like Zabriskie Point, Altered States and Easy Rider, and more obscure or unexpected films like the Czech New Wave movie Daisies, feature length trippy porn Behind the Green Door and genre-defying British film The Wicker Man.

Whether the film is depicting drug-induced madness or creating an atmosphere of existential confusion, these films somehow experiment with the audience’s sensory perceptions in order to uproot the viewer from reality. These films welcome (or in some cases, force) the audience to interact with a plethora of psychedelic imagery, sounds, and/or narration.
