I haven't seen that one, unfortunately, but I hear it's pretty good. But I once saw the 1979 version of "A Hell of a Woman" by Alain Corneau (of the All the Mornings ofthe World fame). Written by the avantgardist Georges Perec, it actually captured the weird world of Thompson.

What about "Kill-Off" from 1989? I thought it was good too.
