MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS and Spoke Art join forces to bring you a special 20th Anniversary 35mm widescreen screening of Terry Gilliam's mind-melting adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's psychedelic, anti-narrative FEAR AND LOATHiNG iN LAS VEGAS. Accompanied by a new screen print in Spoke Art’s ongoing Roxie poster series. Hosted by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks.

Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) drive a red convertible across the Mojave desert to Las Vegas with a suitcase full of drugs to cover a motorcycle race. As their consumption of drugs increases at an alarming rate, the stoned duo trash their hotel room and fear legal repercussions. Duke begins to drive back to L.A., but after an odd run-in with a cop (Gary Busey), he returns to Sin City and continues his wild drug binge.

“Heavy as it can be, FEAR AND LOATHING is also lighter than one might expect. The mise-en-scene is busy without seeming hysterical. Generous in its use of voice-over, the movie gets maximum mileage from Thompson’s prose. It not only has the guts to dramatize the writer’s two-page flash­back to San Francisco, 1965, but also includes his rumination on the moment’s drug-induced sense of gener­ational manifest destiny. Scored to Buffalo Spring­field’s mournful 'Expecting to Fly,' this evolutionary failure is even visualized: Depp wrapped in his microphone cord and sporting a Halloween lizard tail, immersed in the primeval ooze of what once was a hotel suite.” – J. Hoberman

Directed by Terry Gilliam. Based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson. Cast includes Johnny Depp, Benicio del Toro, Ellen Barkin, and Harry Dean Stanton. 1998. 119 minutes. In 35mm.
