Too weird to win over the masses, too rare to sink without trace, Gilliam's Fear And Loathing... is a healthily bizarre curio. Devotees of writer Hunter S Thompson's account of his drug-fuelled voyage around Vegas with his Samoan attorney will love this, even though it can't quite capture the laugh-out-loud quality of the book. But if you don't like Thompson and like films to have a plot, this will impress you about as much as the drunk who tries to engage you in conversation when you're walking home. All that said, we wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Director: Terry Gilliam Cast: Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro
