this serious moonlight

Sundance has kicked off and a quick roll through the Park City schedules for this year turn up what look to be some promising films.

Gonzo: the life and work of dr. hunter s thompson
Fueled by a raging libido, Wild Turkey, and superhuman doses of drugs,Thompson was a true "free lance, " goring sacred cows with impunity, hilarity,and a steel-eyed conviction for writing wrongs. Focusing on the good doctor's heyday, 1965 to 1975, the film includes clips of never-before-seen (nor heard) home movies, audiotapes, and passages from unpublished manuscripts.

Note: Drunkard has a nice Hunter interview from his post a while back on The Rum Diaries.

Check the full Sundance schedule for complete rundowns on CSNY Deja Vu, Adventures in Power,Be Kind Rewind, i.o.u.s.a, good dick, pretty bird, made in america, smart people, towelhead, year of getting to know us.

Aside from Sundance, don't forget about Slamdance too, which features some Chicago and Milwaukee music wierdness.
