dueserpenti One of the things I regard as a mark of my nascent adulthood is the realization that Hunter Thompson is just a guy who wrote some good stuff in the sixties and seventies.
abeli$con if you can get up the courage to take down that bob marley poster and throw away your old copy of nevermind you will like totally be on the road to adulthood or something.
Justin Dohrmann I didn't dig this movie like I thought I would. It's more of a "let's hurry up and suck this guy off before the body gets cold" kind of picture than a genuine documentary. There are better Thompson movies.
StanleyPain What's a better documentary? The only other one about Thompson I'm aware of is "Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride" which isn't that great. Gonzo is a lot better. I know there was the Breakfast with Hunter thing, but that was made in the 1970s. Is there something more recent?
Aelric I liked all of the above, but that could easily be fanboyism. I enjoyed this one and I'm sure at least more, less flattering one will come out focusing on his relationship with his family.
Breakfast with Hunter was made in the 90s I think. There is that script reading argument in it in it's entirely. In fact, a large part of it was following the pre-production of Fear and Loathing. Unless I'm getting mixed up with Buy the Ticket, which is possible.
StanleyPain As huge Thompson aficionado, I thought Gonzo was great. Buy The Ticket seemed like the rushed together, cock-sucking one. And the dumb gravely narration by Nick Nolte didn't help.
kingarthur This movie is pretty much crap. But three for Hunter.
Caminante Nocturno This movie also isn't about the animation studio that produced Strike Witches.
