Drug-fuelled road trip through California & Nevada in the mid-70's by the Gonzo pioneer
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas tells the tale of journalist Hunter S Thompson and his ‘attorney’, the Samoan, driving to Las Vegas to find the dark side of the American dream.

Roaring down the desert highway from Los Angeles, they realise there’s only one way to go about such a perilous task: getting very, very twisted. Armed with a drug arsenal of stupendous proportions, the duo engage in a manic, surreal tour of the sleaze capital of the world.

Their perilous, chemically-enhance confrontations with casino operators, police officers and assorted Middle Americans have a hallucinatory humour and nightmare terror. Riotously funny, daringly original and dead serious at its core, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is a classic statement on the collapsed dream of the American Sixties.
