Synopsis

Alex Gibney (director of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and Taxi to the Dark Side) turns his attention from corporate scandal to Gonzo journalism with this tribute to the libido-driven, Wild Turkey-swilling writer who never knew the meaning of the word "excess." Comprised largely of never-before-seen archival materials, Gibney's film focuses on the years between 1965 and 1975, when Hunter S. Thompson was truly firing on all cylinders. Rare home movies, audiotapes, and excerpts from unpublished manuscripts combine to paint an affectionate portrait to the wild-eyed father of Gonzo journalism.Keywords: Gonzo journalism hunter s. thompson fear and loathing in las vegas biography american journalist author
