Our take

Writer. Rebel. Firebrand. The frenzied dispatches of Hunter S. Thompson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) defined an era and remain counterculture touchstones to this day. After his suicide in 2005, Oscar® winner Alex Gibney put together this soaring, life-affirming doc on a true American legend.
