Omnibus: Hunter S. Thompson
From Psycho Killer to Painter
BBC program Omnibus features Nigel Finch’s 50-minute 1978 documentary of Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Steadman, with cameos by John Dean, Brian Doyle & Bill Murray, Ray Romano, & probably other known entities I missed.
Factual gaff HST was a member of the Hell’s Angels cited early on does not detract from the charms of this time capsule, titled “Fear And Loathing In Gonzovision” at the beginning and “Fear And Loathing On The Road To Hollywood With Dr. Hunter S. Thompson And Ralph Steadman” at the end.
Sorry, Deutschland, you can’t watch it, I guess. Due to the song at the end. Even after I replaced Dylan (worldwide blocking) with Shatner. Blame the corporate moguls and their swarms of lawyers.
