Director Alex Gibney (“Taxi to the Dark Side,” “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”) takes a documentary look at the wild-ass life of gonzo journalist/counter-culture icon Thompson. Johnny Depp, who starred in the film version of Thompson's “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” narrates and a host of notables pop up. Gibney makes great films and “Gonzo” is a good one — spotty, a bit windy in the middle, but well worth a look. 121 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes additional material, a commentary track by director Gibney, deleted scenes, home movies, audio recordings and photo galleries.
