about the life of writer Hunter S. Thompson
, starring Bill Murray
(of all people) as HST. More of a comedy than Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
, and not nearly as memorable. I saw this. Not bad, but when I noticed several scenes (some rather crudely adapted) from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
it occurred to me that this was not any individual story about HST but a sort of medley
of his writing, including quite a chunk from Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72
. Disappointing, but still should be seen by any fan of HST at least once (and probably not more than that) if nothing more than to see Murray play HST. Interesting to say the least.
1980, Running time 100 minutes.
This node not to be confused with Home on the Range
, the song from which the title of this movie was taken.
