This month’s Staff Pick comes from our Marketing Director Andy Conner, who was quick to pick director Terry Gilliam’s pitch-perfect 1998 adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s landmark novel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!
Johnny Depp is at his best as journalist Raoul Duke (Thompson’s alter ego), with Benicio del Toro matching him measure by measure as his attorney Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro), a manic drunkard who joins Duke on a road trip from L.A. to Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race. With a suitcase full of drugs to keep them company, Duke and Gonzo’s embark on one of cinema’s most outrageous and increasingly hilarious journeys, as reality and drug-fueled hallucination blend to make everyday experiences like picking up hitchhikers, taking a bath, enjoying a trapeze show, and even simply checking into a hotel the stuff of kaleidoscopic nightmares – perfect fodder for bombastic visual storyteller Gilliam (Brazil, The ADventures of Baron Munchausen).
