"We were somewhere around Barstow when the drugs began to take hold."

"Excruciatingly funny.  J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"...the film has the look and feel of a picture that's destined for cult status.  James Berardinelli's ReelViews

Editor's Note
FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS is a whirlwind of a movie, a wacky, drug-laden story backed by a fist-pumping rock & roll soundtrack featuring everything from Wayne Newton and Tom Jones to Combustible Edison and Dead Kennedys. Journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) heads to Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, bringing along his Samoan lawyer, Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro), in this furious adaptation of the book by Hunter S. Thompson. It is 1971, and Duke and Gonzo are on their way to Sin City with a frightened hitchhiker (a nearly unrecognizable Tobey Maguire) and a trunkful of drugs, which they ingest nonstop. Depp is terrific as Duke, Thompson's alter ego, and Del Toro is a riot as the crazy lawyer. To perfect his Thompsonian performance, Depp spent a lot of time with the good doctor, and it paid off in a film that captures the frenetic pace of the counterculture novel. Director Terry Gilliam, a master of complex, bizarre visual imagery, has a field day interpreting the drug-hazed world in which Duke and Gonzo reside. An all-star cast chimes in with wonderfully offbeat bit parts, including Harry Dean Stanton, Gilliam regular Katherine Helmond, Flea, Cameron Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Christina Ricci, Gary Busey, Lyle Lovett, and others.

Rolling Stone
"...Fiendish intensity..." 06/25/1998 p.99

Sight and Sound
"...FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS throws you straight into a demented cinematic 'acid test'..." 11/01/1998 p.48-9

Entertainment Weekly
"...A lucid hallucination. Depp again proves himself our most inventive actor....This movie isn't about drugs, it is drugs..." -- Rating: B 11/13/1998 p.82

New York Times
"...A fidelity to the author's hallucinatory imagery that until now seemed impossible to capture in a film. But here it is in all its splendiferous funhouse terror: the closest sensory approximation of an acid trip ever achieved by a mainstream movie..." 05/22/1998 p.E14

Total Film
"[A] shocking, funny and sad tale of idealism's demise en route." 07/01/2006 p.128
