Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas 1998


From Amazon: The original cowriter and director of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was Alex Cox, whose earlier film Sid and Nancy suggests that Cox could have been a perfect match in filming Hunter S. Thompson's psychotropic masterpiece of "gonzo" journalism. Unfortunately Cox departed due to the usual "creative differences," and this ill-fated adaptation was thrust upon Terry Gilliam, whose formidable gifts as a visionary filmmaker were squandered on the seemingly unfilmable elements of Thompson's ether-fogged narrative.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/26/2007)

How do you make a Hunter S. Thompson book into a movie?

It is a challenge that I think few directors other than Terry Gilliam would even try to tackle, but he goes for it, head on.

Plot? Incomprehensibly wonderul and Thompson-esque.

From reading Thompson, this movie really does capture his wild spirit and Johnny Depp...

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Movie Review by River (7/15/2006)

This is far from your everyday movie, and only for those with a deep appreciation for the diversity of film-making, or fans of Hunter S. Thompson. This does not mean those mentioned will enjoy it, although definitely respect the attempt. I personally found it fascinating. To portray a permanently drug induced state to the...
