Ep. 78 — FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS (1998)
This week's episode celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of Terry Gilliam's adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's magnum opus FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS!
This drug-fueled trip through the American dream was a critical and commercial disappointment upon release, but the past two decades have seen its star rise (in a large part due to its inclusion in the Criterion Collection) and it's become one of Gilliam's most popular films.
Does that mean that its a good addition to the Psychotronic Hall of Fame? Could it be considered one of the greatest fringe films of all time?
