This is a review based on the reviewers, basically. I never even knew about Thompson to begin with. Then I saw the documentary on him. The fact that this movie is based on a true story is amazing. This movie is not meant to be picked apart and reviewed. Osmosis, key word..

Amusing voice-overs and sporadic hilarity make this worth watching. Overall, this is just a monotone film in which we watch the protagonists do various drugs. Much like a lazy follow-up to Easy Rider in tone. Not quite a turd, but less than what one expects from a director like Gilliam.
