A documentary about Hunter S. Thompson.  I remember reading his Hell’s Angels book when it first came out in paperback and thinking how cool it was for a writer to embed himself in the subject matter and the story itself.  But it’s disturbing to watch him lose his center as years roll by and see him become the story.  I never got a feel for the man from this film.  Maybe there was nothing there to find.  He was caricaturized in “Doonsbury” as the Duke character and he comes across just about as flat in “Gonzo.”
