Fear and Loathing in Gonzovision: Hunter S. Thompson 1978 BBC Documentary

“Hunter S Thompson and long time artistic collaborator Ralph Steadman are filmed as they travel to Los Angeles for an early planning meeting about the movie Where The Buffalo Roam. Fascinating for any fan of Fear and Loathing is Las Vegas, as Johnny Depp studied the footage in order to better adopt Thompson’s mannerisms. There is also a detailed description of Thomspon’s elaborate funeral plans, realized in 2005, involving a fist-shaped obelisk.”

I love Hunter S.Thompson and his work. His death was unsurprisingly mysterious and tragic.
