Topic: Favorite Drug-related movie?

I am not necessarily talking about your typical stoner comedies.  I am talking about drug and drug use movies.  More dramas than comedies.  I can think of 2 off the top of my head:

The Salton Sea
Requiem for a Dream

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

Well i didn't write down any comedies dealing with drug related movies b/c JMH was looking for drama than comedies.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

You can post comedies, but I was hoping by narrowing it to primarily dramas that I could find a good new movie that I had never seen before.  Thats what happened with The Salton Sea.  Never heard of it, had a friend recommend it because she knew I enjoyed movies like that and loved it.   I guess I was hoping to find another new gem by asking this.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

Oh ok. well then i will post my other list which will be comedy.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

I forgot about:

Less than Zero
Falcon & the Snowman

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

BDD, I dont know if I would consider Empire Records a drug related movie.  Other than the fact the one kid acts like a melt, there really isnt anything in the way of drugs. 

Falcon and the Snowman is a good one!

I cant believe it hasnt been mentioned yet: The Big Lebowski.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

Empire Records is b/c Mark was always baked from his buddy and would also be tripping out on the Gwar video. Mark was always baked in that movie. But i see what you're talking about. Just looking for the stoner comedies. I'll fix my list.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

I completely forgot you were looking for just the stoner comedies. My bad.

Re: Favorite Drug-related movie?

Falcon and the Snowman is a good one.  And of course The Big Lebowski.

I still dont quite agree with the Mark part.  We never see him get stoned.  And the brownies are what causes the Gwar video thing.....his friend said there were his special recipe, which he said meant LOTS of sugar.  So I think it was a sugar induced hallucination.  The only real drugs in this film are Coreys uppers/diet pills/speed.
