‘For No Good Reason’ is a visually stunning unique biographical study of Ralph Steadman, whose art rose to prominence during his collaborations with writer Hunter S Thompson. In the finest Gonzo tradition questions of witness and authenticity are constantly challenged, as the film smashes narrative conventions, moving seamlessly from interview to animation and soundscape.

Johnny Depp is a friend and thought‐provoking observer of Ralph’s art who inspires insight as the film unfolds. Unseen intimate footage of Hunter S Thompson, much of it filmed by Ralph himself, reveals their deep life‐long friendship and true working relationship. Additional contributions include; Terry Gilliam, Richard E Grant, Tim Robbins, Bruce Robinson, Jann Wenner and Hal Wilner.
We observe Steadman over fifteen years as he creates a wealth of art. For the first time his work is animated, including the drawings from ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’. There is an animated prequel to the feature, Cherrywood Cannon, which is read by Richard E Grant.
Music from Slash, The All American Rejects, Jason Mraz, Lynval Golding, James Blake, Crystal Castles, Thom Crawford and Ed Hardcourt, each who have recorded tracks to their chosen visual chapter.
‘For No Good Reason’ is a cohesive, touching and at times funny film about honesty, friendship and the ambition that drives an artist.
Never has a truer record been made on the demise of the 20th Century counterculture and hipster dream – Ralph Steadman is the last of the Gonzo visionaries.
