For No Good Reason a film about Ralph Steadman. Johnny Depp guides the visually stunning journey, smashing narrative conventions, moving seamlessly from interview to animation and in the finest Gonzo tradition questions of witness and authenticity are challenged. Steadman's art is for the first time animated, including illustrations from Hunter S Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vagas. Featuring Richard E Grant, Terry Gilliam, Bruce Robinson and with music from Slash, The All American Rejects, Jason Mraz, Crystal Castles, Ed Hardcourt and Beth Orton. A touching and at times funny film about honesty, friendship and the ambition driving an artist. This is a true record of the demise of the 20th Century counterculture and hipster dream with Ralph Steadman the last of the Gonzo visionaries.
Johnny Depp pays a visit to his friend, artist Ralph Steadman, exploring the career and activism of the renown artist and the last of the original Gonzo visionaries. Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant and others also discuss Steadman's art and influence. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

I once compared Gervais to Woody Allen and Leslie Nielsen but with this outing, I find myself comparing him to Kevin Hart. A cringe worthy outing not in the same way as the Office was. Farmiga and Ferrera are the best of bad bunch however....

Ethan Hawke gives a good performance through out along with Zoe Kravits and January Jones. It wasn't a bad watch but it wasn't really keeping my interest. It still wasn't bad, just wasn't too into it.

Dougal S (it) wrote: If ever a film belies it's director's artistic roots it's this one. Russell Mulchay's history as the goto MTV music video director of the early 80s is writ large over this one. Everything is artistically shot and framed, with long moody tracking shots mixed with angled jump cuts and backlighting... plenty of backlighting.What you get for your money is basically an Aussie rip off of Jaws where the main animal protagonist is a giant wild boar intent on snacking on any poor unfortunate that gets in it's path. When an American journalist is killed by the beast her husband turns up in the small outback town to try and discover what happened. Just like Jaws the townsfolk don't believe the animal exists and it remains for the him to team up with a grizzled old boar hunter who has been chasing the critter since it killed his grandson years previously.Throw into the mix a couple of psychotic rednecks who are covering up the animals existence in order to prevent their own nefarious being discovered and you've pretty much got the plot.Portraying and desperately grim version of the outback (all abandoned machinery and waste) it builds to a stylised climax in a dog food factory as the razorback finally attacks with all the main protagonists stranded.The gore is minimal and thankfully Mulchay hides the beast in the shadows for the most part as it does seem a very un-realistic animatronic but that aside it's a punchy and stylised bit of 80s cinema for the MTV generation.
