Watch Where the Buffalo Roam - Alternative Versions.
Fist of all, as far as the comparison to Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas
(1998) goes, these films are completely different beasts. Fear &
Loathing is a adaptation of a fictional work based on real events.
Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro are playing Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo,
not Hunter S. Thompson and Oscar Zeta Acosta. They are playing
caricatures of real people, indirect representations funneled through
HST's imagination and exaggeration. Where The Buffalo Roam is more
based in reality. Bill Murray is directly playing Hunter S. Thompson as
he writes his writings, Johnny Depp played a character from his
writings, there is a massive difference. And as such, in my opinion,
both films succeed brilliantly. Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas is a
visually dazzling, imaginative, cinematic adaptation of HST's novel and
Where The Buffalo Roam is a quirky, splendidly fun quasi-biographical
journey and pure snapshot of life.
Bill Murray is fantastic in this film. His portrayal of HST is taken
from life, more realistic, more from the man rather than from his text
or the legend of HST. The whole film itself, mainly because of Murray's
characterization and the realistic structured style of the abrupt
interconnected randomness of everyday life, is infused with a undying
sense of fun and love for words, imagination, writing, and the whole
creative process, which seems to me to get more to the core of HST as a
man than the various vignettes of Fear & Loathing.
Where The Buffalo Roam is wildly entertaining, frenziedly hilarious,
and immeasurably fun. But when the general viewing audience, who
presumably do not have a true passion for HST and his works, views both
films and are given the choice between the legend and the man, they
more often choose the legend, which is usually the trend in history.
Whereas Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas has a romance for the stories and
the myth, Where The Buffalo has a romance for the man and the process,
and both have it for his personal style, politics and priorities.
