Portraits from a Las Vegas Elevator
“Who are these people? These faces!
Where do they come from? They look like caricatures of used car dealers from Dallas. And, sweet Jesus, there are a hell of a lot of them at four-thirty on a Monday morning. Still humping the American dream, that vision of the big winner somehow emerging from the last minute predawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino”
Excerpt from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas written by Hunter S. Thompson and adapted for film by Terry Gilliam and Tony Grisoni.
