This slightly old, lo-fi looking documentary follows Hunter S. Thompson and his illustrator Ralf Steadman as they go on a journey to Hollywood to meet with a scriptwriter. It took place before the famous film adaptation of Thompson's seminal work Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was released. It shows Hunter S.Thompson in a true and honest way. It's difficult to tell how mad he is in the documentary. People make references to him having completely lost his mind, and yet he seems perfectly able bodied and minded in the documentary. Aside from the scenes in his vegas hotel room, where he answers the door in makeup. An interesting documentary though.
