The Tropic’s Monday Night Classics series on “Altered States” takes on one of the all-time milestones in substance-aided cinema: Terry Gilliam’s film of Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

Journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his lawyer, Dr. Gonzo (Benicio del Toro) hit the road from L.A. to Las Vegas, officially to cover the news but mostly to experiment with heroic quantities and unlikely combinations of drugs. As the binge starts to turn sour, they sink into a psychedelic nightmare—but it might also have something to do with the American dream.
