Let’s get down to brass tacks. We’re talking about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, for this episode of the Nighthawks Podcast.
This deceptively deep movie is from film auteur and former Python, Terry Gilliam, and stars Johnny Depp as the enigmatic Dr. Hunter S. Thompson- er… Raoul Duke.
Hunter S. Thompson’s book is said to have defined a generation, and within it beats the soul of a man who is looking for one last grasp at the sixties. What follows is a true-to-some-degree story about a drug addled journalist and his drug addled attorney taking on Sin City. Will Vegas be the paradise they seek, or just another money making shill?
The Nighthawks present this discussion as our humble tribute to an American folk hero.
