If you have never done LSD, You will likely not understand this movie
I't about Hunter S. Thompson's trip to Vegas on drugs with his insane lawyer.
I usta sell blotter acid in the mid-80's at a biker bar called Melville's that was out near Fish Lake-waaay out in the boonies.
So I understood this film. I usta get high and drunk for weeks.
Acid will f**k you up.  And if you pour whiskey on top of it-forget about it .
Last time I did acid was last year with Jimbo-just to see if I could handle it anymore. I coudln't.

This is one of the more unique and weird movies I own. It has exceptional effects throughout it showing the audience how strange the world looks to the various characters when they are high.

Me and Lance Ludwig were in high school, history class. And Lance and me had dropped some Purple Barrel acid.
Anyway, we turned in our book reports- I did mine on Geronimo, he did his on George Custer. Lance got a D. He asked the teacher Mr. Devore, why. Devore said- "Because it's bad". (Lance didn't like Gen. Custard, so wrote something bad about him).
Lance punched DeVore right between the eyes-real farmboy hard. DevOre-to his credit-came back at him and they were beating the s**t out of each other on the floor. I was at a back desk tripping my ass off watching this s**t. I would have helped Lance, but I didn't need to-he was beating that teacher's ass.

I think you can understand it without doing drugs, though you might no empathise with some of Thmopson's freakouits. Ironically, the director (Gilliam) is not a fan of drugs.

It's actually an allegory for the hippies' disillusionment when their 60s optimism came up against reality.  A really well-constructed and written novel and an excellent adaptation.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
