Few journalists have become veritable legends like Hunter S. Thompson. With his outrageous "gonzo" journalism, his unrelenting search for truth, and a universe of drugs, Thompson has blazed a very bright trail through American culture. This documentary explores the life of a man whose daring voice challenged the establishment, while often repelling some of the people closest to him. Johnny Depp (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS), an actor forging his own unusual legacy, reads some of Thompson's work aloud with a sense of understanding and irony so deep, one wonders if Thompson's spirit will ever really die.
