This is kind of branching off my last discussion, which was upon the subject of death. Last night I saw a movie that I haven't been able to quite stop thinking of. It's lingers, kinda like the first time you see, Requiem for a Dream, for those of you who have seen it. The emotional toll it takes. Well, I saw a movie like this again last night, it's Gaspar (sp?) Noe's, Enter the Void.
It's a movie about a drug dealer in Japan, who is shot. After, his spirit stays around the city to watch over his sister. The whole movie is about this bond that the main character and his sister have. The movie is all through the perspective of this character, we essentially are his "mind," his "consciousness."
The movie is over 2 hours I believe...and though it is not for everyone (seeing as some scenes drag on for well over a minute), I think it's worth watching once. It's not your typical western movie, designed to keep us entertain, with cuts made every two seconds. It's a sit down and hold still and keep your eyes open. The movie is filled with sex, drugs, and visuals. I can't get it out of my head.
It's based on DMT and the Tibetan book of the Dead. It's about death, rebirth, ghosts, and bonds.
check it out on netflix instant watch if you have it.
This is pretty off topic, but it is about DMT. I was at a festival recently and I was hanging out in this cool dome, a lot like the kind of things you climb on in a jungle gym, only cooler. There were a bunch of random people in there, and one of them smoke DMT for the first time. I don't think he knew anything about it. The experience actually really freaked me out. He was complaining about how he wasn't tripping at all, and some girl offered him some DMT. She warned him that it was intense, but he smoke it anyway. When he did, the vibe got really dark and unwelcoming. I doubt he remembers anything that happened, but I won't be surprised if he never wants to do it again. It was just really weird, and I know that if I ever do something like that, I will make sure it is under the right circumstances and for the right reasons.
