Not the whole Hunter S Thompson story but certain parts of his life. Bill Murray is excellent as Thompson as is Peter Boyle as the attorney. If you have more than a passing interest in HST then this is worth a look. Like Rum Diaries and HST’s life I suppose, this is messy in places and it lurches from one scene to the next with no story to speak of as such but this reflects the ‘gonzo’ journalism that HST championed. Not as good as Fear and Loathing but that was perfect. This is better viewed as a companion piece to fear and loathing.
