average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Videodrome (Criterion Collection) (1982)
Not Rated
  Man can't tell fantasy from reality, as religious and political forces battle for control over his thoughts. About how the media effects they way people perceive reality. I think.
eXistenZ (1999)
  Deals with similar themes as Videodrome, but with virtual reality games
Naked Lunch (Criterion Collection) (1991)
  More about the writing process than the nature of reality, but most of the film is in the brain state of the writer while writing his book than in concrete reality. Another from the director of Videodrome.
Total Recall (1990)
  Based on a Philip K Dick short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale", about a man that is (probably) having a psychotic episode
The Matrix (1999)
  One of the absolute best of this topic. Avoid the sequals at all costs, but definitely check of the Animatrix and Matrix comics, since they are great
Lathe of Heaven (1980)
  Mans dreams warp reality in strange ways. Based on Ursula K. Le Guin's book. Avoid the new miniseries version.
Serial Experiments Lain Vol. 1: Navi (1998)
Not Rated
  One of the best of this genre, though its often overlooked because its animation
The Thirteenth Floor (1999)
  Kinda meh. Worth seeing once though.
Dark City (1998)
  Pretty damn good
Vanilla Sky (2001)
  American remake of Open your eyes.
Open Your Eyes (1997)
  Haven't seen this version yet.
Perfect Blue (1997)
Not Rated
  Pop idol loses grip on reality. Keep and eye out for this guys new film Paprika, which is being described as "hello kitty meets philip k dick."
Altered States (1980)
  Supposedly based on John C Lilly's work with LSD and sensory deprivation tanks. Drugs are bad, mmkay (see A Scanner Darkly for more info)
Waking Life (2001)
  Character walks around in a dream world and has philosophical conversations with strangers. Philip K Dick gets name dropped.
Animatrix (2003)
Not Rated
  Rent this instead of the real sequals (which suck)
Avalon (2001)
  A game thats more real than real life
The Truman Show (1998)
  Man is unknowingly part of a Tv show, and all his friends are actors...
A Scanner Darkly (2006)
  More PKD goodness.
