Review

Gonzo acts as a flickering, allusive evocation of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s life. It serves well as a reminder that Thompson was much more than his popular caricature. That in fact, Thompson was a writer, with the soul and drive and terrible, bottomless heartache that we associate with true artists. And even though his life, like much of his writing, was not always factual, it was nearly almost always true.   

Norman Mailer often quoted Andre Gide: “Please do not understand me too quickly.” I believe this aptly applies to the Dr.  Don’t dismiss Hunter S. Thompson too quickly. His mind was potent, and his observations rare.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.
