Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Oscar Wilde has always worked for me' Hunter S Thomson on Oscar Wilde
'Skinny Crack Whore' Oscar on Hunter
This is the 97 film by Michael Mann. it focuses on the busting out of two drug abusing scum bags and there fleeing to Las Vegas to evade the homosexual cop played by Gary Busey a reprising role for him which he first played in Point Break. The two criminals are played by the 45 year old Johnny Depp as Hunter S Thomson (Deppo), the hyperactive jolly drug taker, seemingly not past the age of a fifteen year old boy obsessed with dope. Benico (fatso) del Toro Plays the attorney based on Oscar Zeta Acosta. Little is known about him, other than his attempts to out act Deppo. The film employs the technique of having sparing if any plot, lots of psychedelic views of Las Vegas and that’s about it
