Film Review: Artist Ralph Steadman Profiled in ‘For No Good Reason’

For No Good Reason

CHICAGO – In the deluge of images that pierce our cerebral cortex on a daily basis, it’s refreshing to go back to the days when images had more influence, sought through publications or word of mouth.

Blu-Ray Review: Awesome Criterion Edition of ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

CHICAGO – I have a love-hate relationship with Terry Gilliam’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” but it’s a lot easier to fall on the former side of that dynamic with the simply amazing Criterion Collection release of the Johnny Depp & Benicio Del Toro drug epic, recently released on Blu-ray. With a stunning transfer enhanced by some of the best special features of the year to date, this is the kind of Blu-ray release that makes the actual movie better.
