Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas


Saw this movie named "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" yest...

It is one helluva movie about drugs and contraband. In fact, it can be read as a savage elegy on the utopian expectations of the 1960s drug culture.This film is so bizarre you might just want to put down the bong and get high from this movie (after all, the movie contains every single known drug known to man since 1544).
Quote Unquote:

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. But the only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing more irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we would be getting into that rotten stuff sooner or later.

This film is the ultimate encyclopedia about various types of drugs like Cocaine, Ether, Mescaline, Grass, Acid and the list goes on and on!!

Basically a film about two guys.. Johnny Depp [Raoul Duke],an oddball journalist and his Samoan Attorney Benecio Del Toro[Dr Gonzo]. The movie also has special app's by Tobey Maguire[A HitchHiker] and Cameron Diaz[A Blond T.V. Reporter].

As they travel to las vegas on a series of psychedelic escapades, they keep doing all kinds of drugs, they hallucinate and imagine things and situations one cant even think of visualising in his worst nightmares or the best dreams!!
Well it's one of those movie's that you should watch if and only if:
1. You like serious Cult movies
2. You are a Johnny Depp addict
3. You prefer movies having subtle dark underlying humor.[Absolutely in contrast to Jim Carrey genre of humor]

But all in all I believe this is one strange, vicious, funny, dramatic masterpiece.
One parting quote from this Roller-Coaster:


Gonzo: [After cocaine blows away in the wind] Did you see what GOD just did to us man!
Duke: God didn't do that, you did! You're a fucking narcotics agent, I knew it. That was our cocaine you fucking pig, scum [swats at him with fly swatter] Pig, swine, whore!
Gonzo: [Pointing gun at Duke] Careful. There are plenty of buzzards out here, they'll pick your bones dry in no time.
Duke: You whore...
Gonzo: (holding up some acid) He he heeee, here's your half of the Sunshine Acid, EAT IT!
Duke: Yeah, all right sure. How long do I have?
Gonzo: As your attorney I advise you to drive at top speed and it'll be a Goddamn miracle if we get there before you turn into some kind of wild animal. Are you ready for that? Checking into a Las Vegas hotel under a phoney name with the intent to commit capital fraud on a head full of acid? I certainly hope so...


Cheerio!!

[Ps: Doing Drugs is absolutely illegal.. and I in no way support the consumption of drugs. Once u see this movie, you'll realize the far-reaching ill-effects of doing any kind of illegal drug]

I raise a toast to De-Tox ing our society :)
