Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

“Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Proof positive of the decline of American culture will be on display in this oh-so-special screening of the cult classic Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas . Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro shine as lead characters Duke and his whacked-out lawyer, Dr. Gonzo, in Terry Gilliam’s film adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s novel (which was very loosely based on a true story). The duo pursues the American Dream through the vastness of the desert­—and the constant consumption of LSD, coke, weed, mescaline, uppers, downers, screamers and laughers—leading to bizarre hallucinations, visions of human-like animals and absolute destruction.
