Not a psychedelic film, but the movie that affected me most, in an optical bending, hallucinatory way was Michael Snow's "Le Region Centrale" (Central Region). It is a THREE hour movie with constant motion of a landscape in Canada's Central Region no people, just landscape, sky, etc...Snow built an apparatus to mechanically move the camera on a grid pattern in a fluid motion...I made it through two hours before I left and I was absolutely buzzing for at least a half hour...couldn't focus too well on stuff!
info on the film:
Snow's Wavelength also has this affect, to lesser degree...I recommend Wavelength, which is only 45 minutes!, to anyone into film...
