An excellent film! 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.

Excellent film! At this price you'll have more money for the mescaline, acid, coke, uppers, downers, ether, tequila & rum to accompany it.

Just stay off the adrenochrome.

Fantastic film! But, "we can't stop here...this is bat country!"

Just to let you know, I saw this for £3.99 in store over the weekend in case anybody can't wait and needs it now. Also, for about £17 you could pick up the triple pack of El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico (which also start Mr Depp as a very funny CIA agent). Might be cheaper to buy them seperately but always nice to haev a set.

He is a great actor - Blow is fantastic as well and I've seen that knocking around fairly cheap recently - watch it if you haven't already!
