Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas: The Untold Story

Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas: The Untold Story

by Laila Nabulsi, Gene Gregorits




In the summer of 2001, cult novelist and rogue journalist Gene Gregorits sat down with Laila Nabulsi, producer of Terry Gilliam's controversial 1998 film "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas". Their conversation lasted six hours, covering the entire history of that film's troubled production, which took nearly a decade to fully be realized, eventually with Terry Gilliam and Johnny Depp attached. From Benicio Del Toro's self-inflicted cigarette burns and Alex Cox's anti-social incompetence to midget porn pranks and touching personal anecdotes about the legendary "king of fun" himself, "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas: The Untold Story" is the first time that this raunchy, rowdy, and in-depth long-form interview has been published in its entirety, and it includes an introduction by its creator, Gene Gregorits.
