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

Boring, Pointless and Random.

“Let me give you a little preview, this movie was directed by Terry Gilliam, the guy behind the overrated 'Life of Brian', the overrated 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' and the overrated '12 Monkeys', it seems like every movie this guy created have turned into "a cult classic", and while the movies i mentioned weren't terrible, in fact most of them are decent or below decent, but i'm pretty much okay with them, but 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' is where i draw the line, because it was pure randomness.

It tells the story of two stoners, played by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro, the character played by Johnny Depp is actually Hunter S. Thompson, the writer of this movie, as he works for 'Rolling Stone' and he goes to Las Vegas along with his attorney to cover A motorcycle ral” read more

Film Review of Fear and Loathing (1998)

“En route from Los Angeles, a cynical sports journalist and hedonist, Raoul Duke (aka Hunter S. Thompson), and his equally hedonistic yet insane lawyer, Dr. Gonzo, equipped with a wide and illegal assortment of hallucinogenic drugs, travel to the neon-drenched void of Sin City circa 1971 for the sole purpose of covering the annual Mint 400 motorcycle race. However, the stoned pair only end up leading themselves into a mad hunt for America, making their journey more meaningful than they'd once thought. This takes them down a long self-destructive path of insanity, nihilism, excess, debauchery, and numerous, large, destroyed Las Vegas hotel rooms.

The subject matter of this film is certainly not about drugs. Sure, heavy drug-use may be in its content, and the drug culture may even b” read more

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

“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 that – a string of visuals with no rhyme or reason for their existence with no development in story, character or interest in any of the mechanics of a successful narrative. So what we’re left with is a film that plods along repeating the basic conceit that we see in the very beginning – our characters get very high, hallucinate some weird shit, get into trouble, get out of trouble, move on to” read more

" One Sentence Review : There are so many great lines, and moments. To many to count. Johnny Depp should have received an Oscar for it. His performance is nothing short of genius.

"I get amused every time I see somebody saying that this is just two hours of events that make no sense or that using drugs and watching people on drugs isn't funny. These people are, excuse me, very wrong. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a documentary about gonzo journalism, ending of an era, freedom and american dream. Everything that happens in this movie is so interesting that it makes you watch it over and over again. The events are absurd and visualy completely mad so you simply can't ge"
