Journalist Hunter S. Thompson enjoyed life in the fast lane, indulging in alcohol and drugs as a creative spark for his febrile imagination to churn out seminal articles on the Hell's Angels and the political establishment for Rolling Stone magazine. This documentary employs a patchwork of home movies, archive TV footage, audio recordings, still photographs and other material to delve into the mind of this iconic yet tragic figure, interspersed with narration from Johnny Depp, who also reads excerpts from Thompson's work.
