Friday Night Freak Show – Fear And Loathing in L.V.
We can’t stop here. This is bat country. On Friday April 20th, WMSE 91.7FM and Times Cinema are teaming up to bring you the insanity that is FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS. All tickets are $5. Doors & DJ spin at 8PM. Film at 9PM.
When a writing assignment lands journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and sidekick Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) in Las Vegas, they decide to make it the ultimate business trip. But before long, business is forgotten and ‘trip’ has become the key word. Fueled by a suitcase full of mind-bending pharmaceuticals, Duke and Gonzo set off on a fast and furious ride through nonstop neon, surreal surroundings, and a crew of the craziest characters ever (including cameo appearances by Cameron Diaz, Christina Ricci, Gary Busey and many others). But no matter where misadventure leads them, Duke and Gonzo discover that sometimes going too far is the only way to go.
Capturing the insane madness of Hunter S. Thompson’s literary classic was the challenge that director Terry Gilliam (12 MONKEYS) openly embraced. Critics hailed it as: “Mindblowing. Bizarre. Outrageous. Wild.” Buy the ticket – take the ride!
