Come celebrate the life of an American original, Hunter S. Thompson (b. July 18, 1937, d. February 20, 2005). We'll be showing Terry Gilliam's wildly imaginative film adaptation of Thompson's classic pop culture novel. Writer Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp), and Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) embark on a savagely funny journey down a road that runs a not-so-straight-and-narrow path into the heart of the American Dream. Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro, Christina Ricci, James Woods. Universal Pictures; Directed by Terry Gilliam.; 128 minutes; 1998; Rated R by the MPAA.
