“If you encountered characters like this on an elevator, you’d push a button and get off at the next floor.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“The strongest magnet in this psychedelic morass is Johnny Depp who, as the story’s antic, disgusting and seductive spirit guide, is impossible to look away from.” Washington Post

“The closest sensory approximation of an acid trip ever achieved by a mainstream movie and the latest example of Mr. Gilliam’s visual bravura.” New York Times

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.

Dir. Terry Gilliam. 118 min. 1998.

Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket at the bar for $2 off any drink.
