A well made documentary on the life of one of Journalisms most famous contributors. A great watch for fans of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and people who are just curious. If you are one of those who watched "Fear and Loathing" and wondered what the fuck it was about, watch this and read the book!
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1965 to 1975, the film includes clips of never-before-seen (nor heard) home movies, audiotapes, and passages from unpublished manuscripts.

IMDB rating: 7.7/10
