- General info
Gonzo is the definitive film biography of a mythic American figure, a man that Tom Wolfe called our greatest comic writer, whose suicide, by gunshot, led Rolling Stone Magazine, where Thompson began his career, to devote an entire issue (its bestselling ever) to the man that launched a thousand sips of bourbon, endless snorts of cocaine and a brash, irreverent, fearless style of journalism - named Gonzo after an anarchic blues riff by James Booker.

- Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson review by CP Customer
This a marvellous documentary about the hot-headed and unique Hunter S. Thompson. A thorough job has been done to include many who knew the man or were involved in significant events during his life. Thankfully it doesn't try to paint a pretty picture or avoid many of his shortcomings as a person. Unlike Tyson these are laid out for all to see. The experience is fittingly unique and outrageous, just like the man himself. Up there with Man on Wire and the English Surgeon as one of the best documentaries I've seen recently.
