Terry Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – The trippy hotel scene

9 Jun

It is hard to believe but the amazing hotel scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, one of the classic psychedelic works of literature and film, has not been featured on the DPV as yet. Today is a good day to set things right. The trippy hotel scene, featuring Johnny Depp is a great example for the very distinct type of psychedelic humor where the joke lies in the gap between what the protagonist conceives through his hallucinations, and the actual ‘objective’ reality as it is seen by the camera/others. The hotel scene is ¬†one of the best renditions of a psychedelic experience on film, and one of the most hilarious at that.
