Bill Murray as Hunter Thompson, in a celebration of gonzo that gets bogged down in episodic disjunctions and heavy, hollow direction (by Art Linson). The movie is about manic energy, but you can feel everyone straining just to get the next shot on the screen. With Bruno Kirby, Rene Auberjonois, Peter Boyle, and R.G. Armstrong; photographed by the superb Tak Fujimoto.
