Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson (2008)
« on: January 18, 2012, 07:33:47 PM »

Fueled by a raging libido, Wild Turkey, and superhuman doses of drugs, Thompson was a true "free lance", goring sacred cows
with impunity, hilarity, and a steel-eyed conviction for writing wrongs.
Focusing on the good doctor's heyday, 1965 to 1975, the film includes clips of never-before-seen (nor heard) home movies,
audiotapes, and passages from unpublished manuscripts.

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 Thompsons 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.

Narrated by Johnny Depp.
