Miami Beach Cinematheque. September 19th, 2008. The Miami Beach Cinematheque, in collaboration with Emerging Pictures, presents Gonzo, The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson on September 19th, 2008 at 8:30 p.m. This film is directed by Alex Gibney and features Hunter S. Thompson, Johnny Depp, Jimmy Carter and Pat Buchanan.
Gonzo is the definitive film biography of Hunter Thompson, a mythic American figure, a man that Tom Wolfe called our "greatest comic writer," the man that launched a thousand sips of bourbon, endless snorts of cocaine and a brash, irreverent, fearless style of journalism – named "gonzo" after an anarchic blues riff by James Booker. Alex Gibney is also the director of films such as Enron: the Smartest Guys in the Room and the Academy Award winning Taxi to the Dark Side. While Gibney shaped the screen story, every narrated word in the film springs from the typewriters of Thompson himself.
