Description: This documentary is a probing look into the uncanny life of national treasure and gonzo journalism inventor Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. Fast moving, wildly entertaining and with an iconic soundtrack, the film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson's life--his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell's Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign, and much more. Johnny Depp narrates.
