There's something about watching certain movies while high that just makes them better. Whether you're in the mood for a laugh-out-loud comedy, a thriller with tons of symbolism, or a trippy sexy flick that syncs up perfectly with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, there are plenty of stoner classics out there to satisfy any craving. And let's not forget that some videos are also made for stoners, with psychedelic visuals or mind-bending content that makes you question reality in the best way possible.
Here, we've rounded up some of the best movies and TV shows to watch while high, including everything from the cult-favorite Napoleon Dynamite to the sci-fi classic John Dies at the End. Plus, there's a whole new wave of "slow TV" making the rounds, so you can add a touch of tedium to your high-watching experience with a movie-length recording of Norwegians knitting or chopping wood.
If you're in the mood for a music video with a similar head-tripping effect, try TRST's "Iris" featuring textured visuals and an intimate, sexual vibe. Or, check out Donald Glover's mashup of his perspective on current times and a variety of animated features from the likes of Kanye West, Michael Jackson, Michelle Obama, and Will Smith for a stimulating look at the future.
And for a little more existential dread, you could always turn to the latest installment of the Netflix original anthology Black Mirror, which is sure to blow your brains with its dystopian themes and mind-bending sciencey content. Just be careful, this one might make it hard for you to sleep that night (and maybe even give you a little bit of an anxiety attack).
