Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
Directed by: Terry Gilliam
Stars: Johnny Depp, Benecio Del Toro, Gary Busey, Christina Ricci
Synopsis: Journalist Raoul Duke and his lawyer Dr Gonzo drive from LA to Las Vegas on a drugs binge. They nominally cover news stories, including a convention on drug abuse, but also sink deeper into a frightening psychedelic otherworld. As Vietnam, Altamont and the Tate killings impinge from the world of TV news, Duke and Gonzo see casinos, reptiles and the American dream.
