The deranged adventures of Gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson and his attorney Oscar Acosta, referred to in the movie as "Laslow". Thompson attempts to cover the Super Bowl and the 1972 Presidential election in his typical drug-crazed state, but is continually and comically sidetracked by his even more twisted friend Laslow. Allegedly based on actual events. Written by

The character of Carl Lazlo is loosely based on 1960s Chicano lawyer Oscar Zeta Acosta. Acosta was briefly Thompson's attorney during the 1970s and is the basis for the character of Dr. Gonzo in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
(1998). The title of this movie is an allusion to Acosta's book "Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo". See more
