10. Taking Woodstock (2009)

When "Woodstock" crosses our minds, two words tumble along with it: music and drugs. This scene from Taking Woodstock, where we follow Elliot (Demetri Martin) as he takes his first LSD-induced trip with two strangers in a van, encapsulates the two.

We watch as Elliot's narcotic experience slowly unfolds, seeing fingers absentmindedly graze skin, images on a roof's static painting turn into crude animation, and a massive Woodstock crowd turn into a giant wave of undulating colors. Or, as his LSD partner-in crime says, "Tiny little people on stage with their waves of tiny electric voices." Far out, man!
