Gonzo: the Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

For those of you not in the know, Hunter Thompson coined the term 'Gonzo Journalism'. We've all see the Fear and Loathing side of the man, now get an in depth view at the life of the madman.

For me as a fan, this trailer looks great! The fact that they got Jimmy Carter, Pat Buchanan, George McGovern, many of the people HST spoke against, says a lot about the impression the man left on the world.

The documentary is scheduled for a July 4th release. If you're new to HST, this looks like it'll be a great jumping on point. If you're a long time fan, it looks to be a nice look back.

Always been curious and unsure where to start? Check these out, along with the movie:

Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream

The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time

Better Than Sex: The Gozo Papers Vol. 4

That's a good primer for you to start you on the long and twisted tale that is Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. Just be prepared, cause the guy's fucking nuts. Had a lot of important stuff to say as well.
