Who made Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?
Ralph Steadman or Hunter Thompson?
In Truth, they told the same story through different ink.
What Fear and Loathing summed up was the Depravity at the Heart of the American Dream. The ugliness behind the True Spirit of America.
What both artists portrayed was the fact that the American Dream could be summed up on the carousel bar in the Circus Circus Casino in Las Vegas (on which I have made a few rounds myself.)
The American Dream is Cheap Shit. It is an illusion of the Big Win. The promise of failure to come.
In Truth, the book is a magical collaboration of two men who chose to be honest about what they saw.
