Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Reviews

One of Terry Gilliam's worst films (almost unwatchable)

A peculiar and oddly haunting achievement.

It's certainly distinctive, looking at times like Richard Lester put through a postmodernist blender.

Bizarre, unpredictable yet strangely alluring.

The film is intensely pretentious, far too clever for its own good.

It's larger-than life, wild, dizzy, colourful and vulgar, and goes round in circles - for a very long time.

The fear is comical; the loathing almost nonexistent.

(Gilliam's) vision is too reflexively comic to evoke the shadows of dread in Thompson's writing.

IGN DVD

Certainly uneven at times, but Terry Gilliam's surreal mood piece paints a vivid, splashy picture of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

Movie Metropolis

A beautiful cinematic showcase for Thompson at the peak of his writing skills.

Eric Melin
Kansas City Star

It may start off as a lighthearted, excess-filled, party-road-trip movie, but Depp is reigned in a little towards the end as his character (a stand-in for Thompson) poetically bemoans the sad failure of the late-60s ideals and values.

Pic serves up a sensory overload without any compensatory reflection on the outlandish and irresponsible behavior on view.

This is the best acid-inspired movie since Roger Corman's The Trip - and it is a darn sight more accurate in its depiction [of] the highs and the lows, the terrible confusion alternating with lucidity, the excitement that gives way to paranoia.

...he first hour of the film is as successful as anything I've ever seen or read at conveying how the world looks to the drugged.

Years from now, it will be reappraised as a misunderstood masterpiece. Well, this is one American critic who's not waiting until years from now.

A film of brilliant moments, but sadly less coherent - and, on senses, rather less personal - than most of Gilliam's work.

There is not enough of the drug dementia and too much philosophizing by Gilliam.

Looking Closer

Gilliam shows that there is something appealing about drug highs. It wouldn't be honest to say otherwise. And, yes, they'll destroy you. It's honest about that too.

Unlike Trainspotting, Fear and Loathing doesn't shock or fascinate. It simply disgusts and repels.
