Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is pure crack (quite literally) and that's why it's so brilliant! It's hard to predict what's going to happen but you can bet that it's most likely going to be something very strange and that, I think, is the beauty of the movie.

After seeing some interviews about the man he's portraying, I think Depp was simply fantastic. Hunter S. Thompson sure is an... read more

Two hours have rarely felt like two or three times that length as consistently as they do during Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It’s hard to completely write off the film as a total loss, but only just barely so. Terry Gilliam can craft a visually arresting sequence with tremendous ease, but he doesn’t always attach a reason for that visual’s existence. And Fear & Loathing is nothing but th... read more

Great Nihilistic Movies (69 movies items)

"Hunter Thompson, godfather of Gonzo journalism, joined forces with director Terry Gilliam with amazing results. This film is a psychedelic trip to Las Vegas, which ends up an abyss of drugs and delirium. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas perfectly illustrates the failure of an entire generation, or better yet, an entire revolution: the hippie revolution of the 1960s. Hunter Thompson, documenting with his delirious writing style, decides to ingest all the possible (and impossible) drugs of this ea"

A good movie

“To be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. In fact, I even saw it in the theater when it came out and, ever since then, it has gained a huge cult following but I'm not sure if it really deserved all these praises (apparently, I'm not the only one and, according to Roger Ebert, the whole thing was just an horrible mess).  I mean, sure, it was visually pretty impressive, the performances by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro were pretty cool and it definitely had some wacky moments. And, yet, even though the material was pretty awesome, somehow, I still had a hard time to really connect with the damned thing. Basically, I couldn't help thinking that the whole thing was rather pointless and it was certainly really random. I guess this one needs a re-watch to make up my mi” read more
