Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (US, 1998)

Did Hollywood really produce this movie? Maybe they saw it as offering an anti-(hard)drug message; Gilliam’s visual style certainly offers a nauseous mise en scene. It captures the era, 1971, when the hippies were in the throes of the post-Altamont hangover and Tricky Dicky was still pursuing the Vietnam war. Hollywood occasionally lets slip anti-establishment movies if it thinks i can make money (DVD, 2nd viewing). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120669/
