"This is the best acid-inspired movie since Roger Corman's The Trip - and it is a darn sight more accurate in its depiction [of] the highs and the lows, the terrible confusion alternating with lucidity, the excitement that gives way to paranoia."
Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Unlike Trainspotting, Fear and Loathing doesn't shock or fascinate. It simply disgusts and repels.."
Judith Egerton, Courier Journal
"Gilliam shows that there is something appealing about drug highs. It wouldn't be honest to say otherwise. And, yes, they'll destroy you. It's honest about that too"
Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
