Using only the finest gems from the workshop of that great American patriot, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, this film was hand-assembled by dedicated craftsmen working, not from a screenplay, but from an original and ingenious dress pattern designed by two fearless fighters for truth, justice and the American way - Mr. Tony Grisoni and his assistant, Mr. Terry Gilliam.
