Just watched Alex Gilbey's 2008 documentary, screened on BBC 2. Excellent. Here's a summary from the Guardian's weekly TV & Listings Guide:

"Gibney's documentary on the crazy, drug-fuelled life and career of the famous journalist-cum-fantasist is a long and detailed affair, collating interviews, TV footage, home movies and readings into a fascinating portrait, and historical record of his 1970's heyday. It's compulsive stuff, narrated by Johnny Depp, who played Thompson in Terry Gilliam's version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas..."

Gonzo's a great documentary and I love Thompson's work. I bought Hell's Angels a few weeks ago - looking forward to reading it.

It was quite poignant to see the Hell's Angel (Sonny Berger?- something like that) who issued the fatwa on the Stones after Altamont being interviewed about HST: an asshole with literary talent was his verdict.

Sonny is now bald as a coot and speaks through a voice-box in his throat after (presumably) a throat-cancer operation.
