FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS is a 1998 adaptation of Hunter S Thompson's 1971 book in which a drug-addicted journalist travels to Las Vegas with a friend to cover a racing event.

Drugs

Throughout the film the central character and his friend take a large number of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and LSD. Some of the potentially negative consequences are vividly illustrated, including disturbing hallucinations, vomiting, paranoia, and increasingly erratic and violent behaviour.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker') and also a range of milder bad language.

Sex

There are a number of strong verbal sex references, some of which are very crude and graphic, and some of which relate to sexual violence.

The film contains scenes of violence and threat, sight of the bloody aftermath of a road accident, and some breast nudity.
