Hunter S. Thompson forced journalism to take a sharp turn. He pushed it to the edge and fell off. He carved a new road and fell off again. Nobody could plot his writing in a straight line and predict his next adventure. He transformed his life travels and experiences into novels that shocked literature and demanded their own genre. Hunter Thompson, the mad scientist of words, created gonzo journalism.

His style is just as important and American as Jazz music. That's why it's appropriate the movie about Hunter's life will be released this coming July 4th. GONZO is the highly anticipated documentary film about the man and the legend - Hunter Thompson.
