For No Good Reason movie scene

The life of artist Ralph Steadman is examined in For No Good Reason.

The  documentary For No Good Reason explores the life of British cartoon-artist Ralph Steadman, who is best known for caricatures he created alongside the work of longtime friend, journalist Hunter S. Thompson of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas fame (or infamy).

For No Good Reason was mainly shot on Steadman’s country estate with the artist’s pal Johnny Depp (The Tourist) serving as tour guide and narrator. The film, which incorporates archival footage, personal photographs, selections of the artist’s provocative and entertaining work and animated “updates” of said work, also features contributions from Terry Gilliam (Monty Python), Richard E. Grant (The Iron Lady), Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption) and Jann Wenner (co-founder and publisher of Rolling Stone), and features music from Slash, All-American Rejects, Jason Mraz, James Blake, Ed Harcourt and Crystal Castles.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack comes loaded with special features, including commentary with the director and producer, Charlie Paul and Lucy Paul, as they discuss their 15-year journey to complete the project.  The Combo Pack also includes the all-new animated short called “Cherrywood Cannon,”   deleted scenes, extended interviews, and a Toronto International Film Festival Q&A with Steadman and Charlie Paul.
