American journalist paul kemp takes on a freelance job in puerto rico for a local newspaper during the 1950s and struggles to find a balance between island culture and the expatriates who live there.
Editor's Note
FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS star Johnny Depp returns to the wild world of Hunter S. Thompson in writer/director Bruce Robinson's adaptation of the Gonzo journalist's "lost" autobiographical novel of the same name. Dejected over life in New York City and at bitter odds with the Eisenhower-era conventions of the 1950s, nomadic journalist Paul Kemp (Depp) flees to Puerto Rico, where he quickly lands a job as a reporter for a San Juan newspaper. Drawing inspiration from author Ernest Hemingway's popular theory about "The Lost Generation," the newly liberated journalist develops a taste for rum as he becomes slowly entangled in the lives of American beauty Chenault (Amber Heard) and her shady husband, Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), a wealthy real-estate developer. Later, as Sanderson's underhanded business dealings begin to emerge, Kemp's principles come into focus, and his writing style begins to mature in ways he never dreamed possible.

Expert Review The Rum Diary - DVD Review DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/14/2012 5:01 AM
Love him or hate him, Hunter S. Thompson was a writer who could inspire men to madness, his political manifestos frothing up rage against machines political and economical or, if that wasn't your cup of tea, then at the man himself for daring to write such outrageousness. So really, the most glaring and disappointing thing about the Thompson adaptation The Rum Diary is how utterly toothless the damn thing is. This, despite featuring Thompson disciple Johnny Depp in the lead role, surrounded by a band of degenerates who, like Thompson's best characters, seem to be inching slowly toward a higher awakening via a marathon of debauchery. The movie bears all the hallmarks of a Thompson story but none of his bite, settling instead for some amusing, occasionally hilarious set-pieces that work great separately but not so much as a whole, and some vague fist-shaking at a political regime long since relegated to the history the full review

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Robinson wrings plenty of chortles from Depp and Rispoli's debauched antics....Giovanni Ribisi steals the show as a blitzed reporter..." 12/01/2011

USA Today
