New Film on the Life and Death of Hunter Thompson

Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride, a new documentary about the life and death of Hunter Thompson, looks like a terrific film.

From Electric Artists:

Interviewees Include Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, Bill Murray, John Cusack, Benicio Del Toro,Tom Wolfe, George McGovern, Ed Bradley, William F. Buckley and Many Others. Narrated By Nick Nolte.

The best part may be that you don't have to go to a theater to see it. It will be airing on the Starz movie channel on December 12.

The original documentary is a personal, intimate look at Thompson with a special emphasis on his Hollywood relationships. It will capture the legacy and “gonzo” spirit of one of this century’s most notorious figures – a man whose life and work regularly intersected with some of the biggest names in the world of film, politics, journalism and sports.

    "If I'd written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism."
