British artist Ralph Steadman is best known for his brilliant, warped, splatter-strewn cartoon illustrations for the writings of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. In this uneven but fascinating documentary on Steadman, now in his mid-70s, filmmaker Charlie Paul visits that territory and digs deeper into Steadman’s breathtaking output, spending a lot of time, along with Steadman’s old friend Johnny Depp, at his studio in England, taking us through his creative process and looking at what makes him tick. Rated R. 89 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe.  See review.
