Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - a perfect review > and epitath for Hunter S Thompson

I love this movie, the Johnny Depp one.  The film is perfect.  I think it captures Hunter and that era of his life perfectly.  Johnny Depp goes so deep into Hunter’s persona it’s a wonder he ever made it out.  626 more words
