||Synopsis: It's the late 1960's. Just for a lark, graduate student Eddie Jessup, known for being unconventional, brilliant and slightly mad, conducts experiments with an isolation chamber, using himself as the subject. His experiences in the chamber cause him to hallucinate, much of the imagery being religious-based despite he not being a religious man. Seven years later, he is a respected full professor in the Harvard Medical School. Believing he has lost his edge and has fallen into an unwanted state of respectability, Eddie decides to resume his work with sensory deprivation, this time using hallucinogens, specifically untested ones used in mystical Mexican rituals, to enhance the experience of being in the isolation tank. After initial tests, he claims he entered an alternate physical and mental state.

It's been a quarter century since I first experienced Altered States,
Ken Russell's take on Paddy Chayevsky's novel of the search for a
common bond between all of us, the ability to love. I personally don't
care if Chayevsky disowned the movie or if Russell resented him for it
or how many angels you can set on the head of a pin, for that matter.
Altered States is a harshly beautiful and intellectual movie based on a
book with the same adjectives.
I'm not going to praise the fine performances, the dazzling special
effects, or the painful, emotional epiphany that the lead character,
Eddie Jessup (William Hurt) experiences as he fights his way past the
roadblock of pure intellect. I want to praise Altered States for its
emotional and intellectual message of the power of love to embrace us
all and heal our wounds.
Altered States is not for the weak of stomach or the easily offended.
The imagery is disturbing and, at times, repulsive. There are scenes of
blasphemy that I know have put off Evangelical friends of mine. But the
central idea of a commonality, a kinship that humans have with one
another and the danger of setting oneself apart to avoid the pain of
interacting and loving is, I believe, supremely satisfying at both an
intellectual and emotional level.
Altered States isn't one of the very best films I've seen, but it
surely has been a source of joy for me. And if it doesn't turn your
crank--or turns it the wrong way--then find your joy in another film or
other media . . . and remember to love.
