Director Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) just won this year’s Best Documentary Oscar for Taxi to the Dark Side, his hard-hitting film on torture by the U.S. military, and already he’s back with this look at the wild author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, who killed himself in 2005. Given the director, don’t expect a total love note. ”I think it’s bulls—, the idea that Hunter’s killing himself is a heroic act — it’s the act of a narcissist,” Gibney says. ”I never met [Thompson], so I went in fresh and cold, and I wasn’t on anybody’s side.” (July 4)
