just watched fear and loathing from gilliam with johnny depp for the first time in four plus years. have to say that I noticed a greater prevalence of sexist attitudes than I had in the past and hunter s. says quite a number of questionable racially motivated comments. Not really sure how much of that is piss take but a combination of those things made it more difficult for me to appreciate as I had before.
still, the visuals have kept up and the criterion dust off looks great especially on a nice large flat television. perfect for that wide angle lens gilliam seems to adore.
I feel like the movie was better paced when it started than by the time it was finished.
