Set for DVD and Blu-ray release on 13th April 09, Gonzo is the definitive film biography of a mythic American figure.

Hunter S Thompson was renowned for his idealistic political convictions and savage pursuit of the American Way and the signature of the film is its particular focus on his most provocative and productive period from 1965 to 1975. This includes Hunter's encounters with the Hell's Angels, the Fear And Loathing on The Campaign Trail '72 era when Hunter focused on the Democratic Party's primaries (as incumbent Nixon did little campaigning) and his work for Rolling Stone magazine.

As well as Depp's narration, the film features hilarious, illuminating, and poignant contributions from both those that loved Hunter and those that sparred with him, including the legendary Ralph Steadman, Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner, Hell's Angel Sonny Barger, George McGovern, Pat Buchanan, Jimmy Buffet and Jimmy Carter. According to Kris Kristofferson, Thompson was a "walking contradiction, partly truth, mostly fiction." A die-hard member of the NRA, he was also a coke-snorting, whiskey-swilling, acid-eating fiend.
