Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
The film opens with a montage of protests regarding the Civil Rights Movement and Vietnam War, before cutting to Raoul Duke (Depp) and Dr. Gonzo (Del Toro) speeding down the desert of Nevada. Duke, under the influence of mescaline, complains of hallucinating a swarm of giant bats, before going through the pair’s inventory of psychoactive drugs. Shortly afterward, the duo stop to pick up a young hitchhiker (Tobey Maguire), and explain what they are doing. Duke has been assigned by an unnamed magazine to travel to Las Vegas and cover the Mint 400 motorcycle race. However, they have also decided to take advantage of this trip by purchasing countless drugs, and rent a brand new Chevy Impala convertible. The young man soon becomes terrified of the drug-filled antics of the duo, and flees on foot. Trying to reach Vegas before the hitchhiker can go to the police, Gonzo gives Duke a tab of “Sunshine Acid”, then informs him that there is little chance of making it before the drug kicks in. By the time they reach the strip, Duke is in full throes of his trip, and barely makes it through the check-in; all the while hallucinating that the hotel clerk is a moray eel, and that his fellow bar patrons are hideous lizards in the depths of an orgy.

Raoul Duke, journaliste, et son avocat, Maitre Gonzo, partent en virée à Las Vegas pour y couvrir un évènement majeur : une course de motos aux allures de kermesse populaire. En cette année 1971, l’Amérique perd ses grands rêves amenés par les années 1960, et se trouve plongée dans un cynisme outrancier… Cependant, ce voyage n’est qu’un prétexte. Les deux protagonistes, en effet, profitent de la virée à Las Vegas pour s’essayer à tout ce que le milieu de la drogue fait de mieux en ces années bénies. Mescaline, LSD, coke, extrait d’hypophyse et marijuana deviennent leur menu quotidien. Perdus dans des visions déformées de la réalité tangible, à coup de sniff d’éther, ils vivront des aventures mentales entre psychopathologie et cauchemar éveillé. Toujours en quête de la dose en plus, ils sombreront dans des délires qui seront toujours à la limite de leur amener de gros ennuis… Le film est adapté d’un livre de Hunter S. Thompson, publié en 1971 sous le même nom. Hunter S. Thompson est reconnu comme l’inventeur d’un style de journalisme ultra-subjectif qu’est le journalisme gonzo.
