We were somewhere around Barstow when the drugs began to take hold. It is 1971, and journalist Raoul Duke barrels towards Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, accompanied by a trunkful of contraband and his slightly unhinged Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo. But what is ostensibly a cut-and-dried journalistic endeavor quickly descends into a feverish psychedelic odyssey and an excoriating dissection of the American way of life. Director Terry Gilliam and an all-star cast (headlined by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro) show no mercy in bringing Dr. Hunter S, Thompson's legendary Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to the screen, creating a film both hilarious and savage.

There's no middle ground with this one, you're either of the group that love it or hate it. A very faithful adaptation of the book, which I would suggest reading either before or after watching this. Depp's portrayal of Raoul Duke is great and you can't imagine a better actor to play the part. Look out for a number of cameos from other well know actors throughout. For fans and completists, this Criteon special edition is the one to get. 4.5 stars!
