Summary

Summary

Actor Nick Nolte narrates this detailed look at the life and career of Hunter S. Thompson - the late, great Gonzo journalist whose outrageous exploits inspired such films as Where the Buffalo Roam, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and The Rum Diaries. A true American original, Thompson was a writer whose depraved exploits were only exceeded by his extraordinary prose. In this documentary, the recollections of Thompson's friends, family, colleagues, and various partners in crime paint a memorable portrait of the man behind the legend. Archival footage of Thompson himself makes this a must-have film for fans and journalism students alike. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
