movies that you can watch on mute
« on: February 24, 2021, 03:17:10 AM »
what are some movies that have interesting visuals that can be enjoyed on mute? kind of like background visuals while chilling and listening to music?
i personally think 2001 a space odyssey by kubrick is a great one, but everyone knows that one. rare cool movies appreciated!

Wong Kar Wai's films Fallen Angels and Chungking Express are perfect examples of ones I'll put on as background while working on something. They're also a couple of the coolest movies ever made.

These are great suggestions.

To the OP, maybe start looking into 'slow cinema' too. It's more focused on mood, cinematography and atmosphere as opposed to dialogue.

You might like stuff like Koyaanisqatsi or even something more psychedelic and symbolic like Holy Mountain, or Enter The Void.

I'm big on Asian cinema as i'm part Asian. I'd throw a Jia Zhangke film on or something.

If you're into that, Heavy Metal has some pretty cool drawings and some pretty terrible dialogue, so that could work

Heavy metal and holy mountain for sure.

Maybe even high tension, the first Im saw it there was no sound. Probably not the best to vibe out to though.

one of my favorite movies and I've definitely had plenty of times just had it playing in the background while working from the kitchen table and can see the TV. it's fucked up but I love it.

Baraka, or Samsara

I've never done it, but those short trailers made me feel like I was on Ayahuasca.
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

I saw Samsara stoned as hell on the big screen when it came out. It was amazing. Definitely top three on my list of movies I've seen on the big screen while kind of fucked up. Number 1 is Cave of Forgotten Dreams in 3D. Only Herzog could pill off a movie in 3D about ancient cave paintings.

I used to do that in the Napster days.  Seinfeld eps would never have picture (or I didnt have the software to display it) and Id just listen to it going to sleep

I remember seeing Samsara in theatres as well, my girlfriend at the time looks at me 15min into the movie and says "so is there seriously not going to be any dialogue?"

she wasn't the one

Quadrophenia.
Superb shots of old London, great fashions and Brighton riots.
Even on mute it rules.

Oh man, if she was over it after 15 minutes, I bet she really hated this part.

Enter The Void internal sex scene on mute with Diners Drive Ins and Dines audio in the background

I was going to say "Enter the Void" as well. The first time I saw footage from that was a YouTube clip set to Sigur Ros. Pretty amazing visuals.
