Movie Preview: Gonzo: The Life & Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

This new documentary from the Oscar-winning director of Taxi to the Dark Side takes a look at the life and times of Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny Depp, who portrayed Thompson in the 1998 film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas narrates the story which aims to show how Thompson's unconventional lifestyle and worldview led to the invention of gonzo journalism.

The trailer looks insanely fascinating and paints a bigger picture of Thompson's life than the drug-addled boozer he's generally portrayed to be.

From the movie's web site:

The film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson's life — his intense and ill-fated relationship with the Hell's Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, and much more.

The movie will open July 4. To watch the preview for yourself,
