Baked Potatoes: A Pot Smoker's Guide to Film and Video
From the classic 1996 volume of the same name, by John Hulme and Michael Wexler.
1-29: the Goes-Without-Saying List.
30-121: Reliable Sources.
122-177: Unsung Heroes.
178-196: Risky Calls. May be unsafe for watching stoned.
197-213: WARNING! Bad Seeds. These are *bad* movies to watch high, or at all. (Bio-Dome might have gone here, if it had come out a little earlier.)
214-311: Appendix V: Red-Haired Moments. "Little moments of brilliance tucked neatly inside films that failed to meet the rigid criteria of inclusion in Baked Potatoes." Car chases, climactic moments, trippy scenes…the good parts.
311: The movie the authors were actually in.
Unfortunately, this book must have come out just before Face/Off and Twister, both of which I'm sure the authors would have adored. Even less fortunately, the promised sequel, Baked Potatoes II: (More Baked) Potatoes, never materialized. Perhaps someday…
