20TH ANNIVERSARY: FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS
DECEMBER 8 – DECEMBER 13
FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS: 20TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
In Terry Gilliam’s cult classic, journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his lawyer Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) drive from LA to Las Vegas on a hallucinatory odyssey. The duo 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 experience casinos, reptiles and the American dream.
Dir: Terry Gilliam / 1998 / US / 118 min
“Terry Gilliam’s surreal mood piece paints a vivid, splashy picture of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.” – R.L. Shaffer, IGN
“A bizarre masterpiece that invents a brilliantly skewed perspective and sustains it for a nearly impossible 117 minutes.” – Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
“A peculiar and oddly haunting achievement.” – Maitlin McDonagh, TV Guide
