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

Cinematical has a clip and favourable review of Alex Gibney’s documentary Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

Thompson was larger than life, and then his life got so large it was no life at all, and then he took his own life. Gonzo quotes Thompson, bitterly appraising himself just before his 2005 suicide: “I’m an idiot, I’m a fool, I know … but I’ve been a good read, right?”

I love anything HST, and look forward to seeing this film.  Currently sitting with a massive 84% on Rotten Tomatoes

Gonzo is a fascinating history lesson and a bit of a cautionary tale about how fame can turn into the scourge of talent.
