  • Experience 15 years in the life of acclaimed illustrator Ralph Steadman, whose surreal, often confrontational artwork is frequently associated with Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson thanks to such books as FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and THE CURSE OF LONO. A look back at Steadman's remarkable career offers a glimpse into his vivid imagination as interviews with Johnny Depp, Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant, Tim Robbins and others offer insight into the man behind the legend. Meanwhile, Steadman watches as his drawings are brought to life through the magic of animation for the very first time.
  • Critic Reviews
    "Nine years after Thompsons death, it is nearly impossible to think of his prose without conjuring visions of Mr. Steadmans drawings -- nightmarishly funny compositions in which spidery lines intersect with clouds of spilled and sprayed ink."
    New York Times

    "[The] virtue of FOR NO GOOD REASON, a documentary about Steadman, is that it puts a lot of that work up on the big screen to galvanic effect."

    "[I]t incorporates archival footage, reams of photographs and seemingly limitless selections of the artists alternately lurid, provocative and hilarious work..."

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Lovingly detailed with animated and archival imagery, FOR NO GOOD REASON shares the fine-grain layered style of its subject."
    Chicago Sun-Times
