The Rum Diary

As the Eisenhower era draws to a close, journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) decides he's had enough of New York and takes a job in Puerto Rico. There, he becomes obsessed with Chenault (Amber Heard), the fiancee of a shady businessman named Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), who wants to turn the pristine island into a capitalist's paradise. Recruited by Sanderson to write an article that praises an unsavory deal, Paul must decide if he will use his talents to help Sanderson, or bring him down.

The stench of cheap booze, stale cigarettes, newsprint and pre-air conditioning sweat wafts off the screen in "The Rum Diary," Johnny Depp's second shot at paying tribute to his friend, the late journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Though it only rarely reaches the level of gonzo farce that it might have been, "Diary" is still an agreeably drunken stagger through the novel Thompson based on his formative year as a writer – 1960 – which he spent drunk, getting into trouble and first tangling with "The Man" in Puerto Rico.
