- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas review by CP Customer
Thought by many to be impossible to film, Terry Gilliam manages to deliver an excellent adaptation of Thompson's book. Whilst a real fan of Gilliam's previous work, this film was the first for me to highlight what Depp could do as an actor, he's also well supported here in an early role from Del Toro.
The distinctive images of the book and the imagination of the director are well matched. There are plenty of standout and memorable moments. Throw in some laughable moments and you have the ideal Las Vegas experience.
