I remember going with my brother to see The Temple of Doom after we dropped some acid.....this was in 1984.
In the early 70s i dropped some acid by myself and the people I was with wanted to go see Catch 22 we got to the theater late and had to sit in the front row. Talk about electric kool aid acid tests particularly since I had just recently spent a year flying in helicopters in Vietnam. That'll clean the psychic tubes out

Side note saw Joseph Heller give a talk at Melbourne Uni in 1981 he explained how he worked out Catch 22 and advised aspiring writers to steer clear of the English department.

The adaption of a couple years back of Catch 22 is well worth watching.

I'd read the book prior to the first movie and saw both. The enhanced viewing taught me a serious lesson about picking and choosing my environment when I was going to be in a psychedelic state.

Can I just throw into the tenet conversation (which I haven't seen) that Nolan has absolutely no idea how to use sound in a film? I don't loathe him fundamentally, but his command (or lack thereof) makes his films almost completely unwatchable to me. Am I the only one here?

Eraserhead on acid. Big mistake.

First I went to see Eraserhead I was so stoned I couldn’t work out if it was in B&W or colour...had to leave.

you aren’t the only one, most of my comments about tenet include some version of my opinion that the score is overwhelming and a large amount of dialogue is inaudible. Several movies have this problem but tenet is the worst offender for sure.
