Double-bill of adaptations from the seminal 'Gonzo' writings of journalist and novelist Hunter S. Thompson. In 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' (1998), journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his companion Dr Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) arrive in Las Vegas, ostensibly so Raoul can cover the Mint 400 off-track race. The duo embark on a massive drugs binge, checking into the Mint hotel before visiting the Bazzoka Circus casino while high on ether. The hedonistic weekend continues the following day, with Raoul and Gonzo meeting various way-out characters along the way. In 'Where the Buffalo Roam' (1980), Bill Murray stars as the renegade, drug-crazed, drunken journalist 'Dr' Hunter Thompson, who decides to cover the Super Bowl and the 1972 Presidential Election, accompanied by his reprobate lawyer Carl Lazlo (Peter Boyle), in his own inimitable style.
