Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson


I need to write about the Movie Gonzo, Alex Gibney’s new doc about Hunter S. Thompson. As a way to pay homage to the man, I decided to call my friend, a lawyer, and make sure we had some of the necessary supplies before embarking upon a mission of such great importance. But the ludes were hard to find. Poppers are extinct. Ganja is played. LSD doesn’t lead to any worthwhile epiphanies. Ether can only be found in laboratories, mescaline is all synthetic and worthless, and human pineal gland is way too expensive. So I settled on a few tallboys of Tecate and some wasabi peas. Man, times have changed, and watching this movie is a great way to be reminded of just that.
