Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

John: Directed by Terry Gillman, released 1998 Fear and Loathing is taken from the book by Hunter S. Thompson, it is a very good adaptation from the book and stay's very faithful towards it.

An ill journalist and a crazy lawyer travel out through the las vegas city to find the "American dream" through their journeys they find themselves tripping out, scarying kids and parking on city sidewalks.
I haven't seen many other than this film by Terry Gillman but he thinks like a genius, Johnny Depp is a very dominant character that play's his role expetionaly well. My favorite scene would be when the two are driving through the desert, the large Samoan lawyer show's him the acid and they take it, Johnny is then told he has about 10 minutes for he starts tripping. I love the conversation that Johnny has with the receptionist.

Great movie, love the adventure and the chaos.
10/10 *****
