Where the Buffalo Roam ★½ 1980 (R)

Early starring role for Murray as the legendary “gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Meandering satire based on Thompson's books “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72.” Either confusing or offensively sloppy, depending on whether you've read Thompson. Music by Neil Young, thank goodness, or this might be a woof. 98m/C VHS, DVD . Danny Goldman, Leonard Frey, Bill Murray, Peter Boyle, Susan Kellerman, Bruno Kirby, Rene Auberjonois, R.G. Armstrong, Rafael Campos, Craig T. Nelson; D: Art Linson; W: John Kaye; C: Tak Fujimoto; M: Neil Young.
