Hunter S Thompson: A documentary

Writer of the great Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. More troublesome in his day than Jon Stewart and to think Thompson never even had his own TV show.

He is credited as the creator of Gonzo journalism, a style of reporting where reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become the central figures of their stories. He is also known for his promotion and use of psychedelics and other mind-altering substances (and to a lesser extent, alcohol and firearms), his anarchist views and his iconoclastic contempt for authority.
