Probably the closest any of us who admired the man from afar will ever get to the confines of Woody Creek and the maddening genius who ruled over it.

Audience Reviews for Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride: Hunter S. Thompson on Film

A quite good documentary about the the later life and death of Hunter S Thompson. The movie has many interviews with actor, politician and family members. The interviews with the actors basically points to don't let them talk off screen. William H Buckley talks ad nausium giving left handed compliments.

The second half deals allot with his plans for death, suicide and his memorial not as enjoyable as the beginning. There are several scenes from Where the Buffalo Roam and Fear and loathing but know great incites.

It really left me wanting for more, but there isn't.
