Hunter S. Thompson was a complex man, he’s been described as many things but apart from the words “writer” and “rogue” it’s mostly just hearsay and drivel. This documentary is a look behind the curtain at who HST really was, it’s the most honest look at the man I’ve ever seen and as a result I’m recommending it here today.

Thompson was a motorcyclist and was known for his penchant for excessive speed and his love of using the bike as a tool to clear his head. If you’ve got some time on your hands, grab yourself a coffee or a beer (or some LSD if you feel that that’d be more appropriate) and hit play.
