Oscar winning director Alex Gibney presents a probing look into the uncanny life of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson inventor of gonzo journalism and author of the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Accompanied by an iconic soundtrack, this fast moving, wildly entertaining film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson’s life from his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell s Angels to his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern s 1972 presidential election. —Magnolia Home Entertainment
"America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable."
This had the potential to be a masterpiece about an incredible and iconic man.. but it was an average documentary with horrible 'flash back' scenes. I did not like it!
The stories behind both the novel and the film sound more engaging than the “passion-project homage” itself.
