I posted something on fear and loathing over a year ago, about the film based on a book by the infamous Hunter S. Thompson, the original Gonzo Journalist. Johnny Depp played the Hunter Thompson character, whilst Benecio Del Toro played Doctor Gonzo, Thompson’s lawyer.

Then just yesterday, following a search engine referral, I chanced on this site, which sheds more light on the background to the film in the form of three clips shot of Johnny Depp reading correspondence between Thompson and himself during the production of the film. For those of you who are aware of the film, or of Thompson, or admire the acting ability of Johnny Depp, the clips will be most interesting, if not enlightening with regard to the characters of these two guys.

Check it out if you will.
