‘Fear and Loathing on the Road to Hollywood’ aka ‘Fear and Loathing in Gonzovision’ is a BBC documentary from 1978 that has Hunter S.Thompson and the wonderful illustrator Ralph Steadman taking a road trip to Hollywood via Death Valley and Barstow from Las Vegas.
The film includes an interesting scene of John Dean chatting with Hunter about his Watergate testimony, the birth of the ‘Re-Elect Nixon Campaign’ (with a cameo appearance by Bill Murray) and a really strange moment in which HST and Steadman plan the good doctors final monument and his ashes being shot into the air. Something that actiually transpired many years later.
I can never get enough of Hunter S. Thompson and hope you feel the same way. Enjoy it.
