Aroview: Excellent portrait of the late Hunter S. Thompson, the revolutionary writer who pioneered 'Gonzo', a freewheeling style of subjective journalism.
Narrated by Thompson aficionado Johnny Depp (who played him in FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) and featuring interviews with those who both adored him and hated him, this is a cracking love letter to Thompson, put together in a similar anarchic spirit to the man's own work. The only gaps here are a result of dir. Gibney's reluctance to delve too deeply into Thompson's destructive private life, preferring to reflect on the man as a controversial genius rather than a depressive addict with a perchant for firearms. Perhaps this is to our benefit.
