GONZO: THE LIFE AND WORK OF DR. HUNTER S. THOMPSON
DIR Alex Gibney NARRATED BY Johnny Depp FEATURING Jimmy Carter, Jimmy Buffet, George McGovern, Jann Wenner, Pat Buchanan, Ralph Steadman, Sonny Barger, Tom Wolfe
Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE, ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM), GONZO is the definitive film biography of a mythic American figure, a man that Tom Wolfe called our "greatest comic writer," whose suicide, by gunshot, led Rolling Stone Magazine, to devote an entire issue to the man who launched a thousand sips of bourbon, endless snorts of cocaine and a brash, irreverent, fearless style of journalism, named "gonzo" after an anarchic blues riff by James Booker.
Today, in a time, when spin has replaced the search for deeper meaning, Thompson remains an iconic crusader for truth, justice and a fiercely idealistic American way. Like Jack Kerouac's On the Road, his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (and the movie made from it) remains a wanderlust myth for generation after generation of American youth. While Gibney shaped the screen story, every narrated word in the film springs from the typewriters of Thompson himself.
Q&A with Academy Awarding-winning producer Eva Orner (TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE), one of the film's producers, will immediately follow the screening.

I'll be updating the photography section on my website soon.

I had a great time up there and everybody I was working with were a great group of people. It was surprisingly sunny all of the days in Kirkland with some clouds mixed in, but the real Washington weather showed up once we went into Seattle.
I guess it's back to living at the beach here in Santa Monica....
