I bought this movie because I am a huge Johnny Depp fan and I have made it a mission of mine to own every movie he has made. This is the latest Johnny Depp film I have purchased. It was made in 1998 and baised off a book by Hunter S. Thompson. This film actually contains many well known actors. They all have very small parts in the film but it is fun when you notice one. Some of them are Mark Harmon, Toby Mcguire, Christina Ricci, Cameron Diaz, Flea and Lyle Lovett.
The film is about a character by the name of Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his "layer" Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) who are sent to the city of Las Vegas on a business trip. The two end up participated in the trip part more the the business part though. They have a suitcase full of pharmaceuticals that take the two of them on a wild ride around Vegas.
If you have never been on drugs this film will surely make you feel as though you are. It is a very bizarre film. kinda funny in some parts and kinda gross and weird in other parts. Over all it is a very artistic film. It would have to be with the drug trips taking place through out 95% of it. Not a family film by any means.
It is 1 hour and 59 minutes long. In color.
Some of the extras on the DVD include Deleted Scenes, spotlight on location, cast and filmmaker Bios, film highlights, theatrical trailers, and production notes.
