Summary Narrated by Johnny Depp, this is a probing look into the life of gonzo journalism inventor Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. The film looks at the major touchstones in Thompson's life, including 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, and his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign.
