  1. Tibulle85's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    @Mubi: Bonne année 2017! Sinon, concernant ce docu: 2.5/5 - plus qu'en lui-même, le personnage est surtout intéressant pour ce qu'il révèle de son époque; mais malheureusement, j'ai trouvé la réalisation extrêmement foutraque et très fatigante au visionnage...Mais bon, après ça, Mubi, vous êtes obligés de nous mettre Las Vegas Parano dans la programmation! (sinon, on attend tjs L'Emprise avec Ludovic! Pour 2017? lol)

  2. Guillaume's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    J'ai un peu de mal avec le côté documentaire qui balance pleins d'images qu'on ne pourrait replacer dans un contexte historique déjà flou si on ne l'a pas forcément vécu ou déjà appréhendé. Cela m'a permis néanmoins de faire quelques recherches sur ce Hunter qui m'était inconnu. Que dis-je... ce monsieur Thompson !

  3. SPQRNH's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Dommage que le film soit bien moins drôle et dingue que son sujet. On est bien loin de la folie gonzo, là.

  4. Ludovic72's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Terry Gilliam en a fait un portrait halluciné dans "Las Vegas Parano"... et on voit ici que le véritable Hunter S. Thompson était déjà bien barré ! L'inventeur du "journalisme gonzo" avait une personnalité plus qu'instable, une passion pour les armes à feu, un goût immodéré pour l'alcool et les drogues... mais aussi un certain génie. D'une facture classique, ce documentaire donne un paquet d'infos sur le "loustic".

  6. Olly Perrett's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Nothing really stands out about this documentary. Very ordinary film about an extraordinary man. Worth a watch though.

  7. Steven Nuttall's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    What it lacks in fresh illumination it makes up for in its reverent praise of the kind of extraordinary life that makes you feel like you've been dragging your heels through yours.

  8. stair_well's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Uncanny viewing just before Paris shootings. Bush jr. as a turning point. More interesting than just drugs.

  9. KatriAV's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Hunter S. Thompson's life is essentially an interesting one. The way this documentary is structured, it leaves you wanting more as it sidetracks to the outside forces that had an effect on him, but reveals much of his life in conversations about people's judgement on Thompson.

  10. dodgygeezer's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    I never much cared for Thompson's work but I'm always happy to learn more about cult and counter cultural figures. This documentary is perfectly executed, perfectly balanced, and it doesn't get bogged down in dull biographical details, spending more time on the "work". Thompson comes across as a unique writer who wrote himself into a corner; an interesting character you wouldn't want as a neighbour.

  11. raggiodisole's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    not the man you might think he is, and in a way thats only clear at the very end. Absorbing biog.

  12. Elena Giusti's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

  13. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    As a documentary about an iconic man with a hell of a life story, it's disjointed and unmoving. Due to feeling both scatterbrained and unfocused it just meanders along and doesn't really catch a good stride, nor hits emotional buttons. While the anecdotes and stories of Hunter's life make it known his life's fire surely did and will burn bright for many years, it doesn't do it in an engaging manner. A cold portrait.

  14. Ilayda Gunes's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Not the documentary but the story is worth 5 stars.

  15. mjgildea's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I remember not being too thrilled with Gonzo when I originally saw it, but I've come around some since then. The archival footage was nice even if I've already seen a great deal of it before. Nothing really new was revealed (although the funeral footage was cool) and it felt like the last 25 years of Thompson's life was kind of glossed over. Felt like more of a celebration than a documentary.

  16. Vincente Oristivar's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Brilliant mind .. well made .. well worth a few watches .

  17. Claire Hirtas's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    I love hunter, but this movie feels somewhat disorganised.

  18. Jake Andrew Comeau's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

  19. Sadhaka's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    "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."

  20. de-la-espicha's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    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!

  21. drmishello's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Mda, ovaj je film bezveze, ali je Hunter jebeni bog.

  22. flobota's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    a very average documentary about an outstanding man

  23. FailedImitator's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Good, not great. I agree with what Jake said.

  24. Jake Cole's rating of the film Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Offered very little insight about Hunter that wasn't already evident in his writing. The best part was his first wife openly stating that he was nowhere near his best when he died and he should have gotten his act together instead of quitting.
