Synopsis Connoisseurs of straw hats and cool sunglasses will find much to savor....A touching tribute to Thompson himself...3.5 stars out of 5 -- [V]isually enchanting....It's impressive how relevant and seamless the whole film is...In every move, Depp makes you believe this was a passion project for the actor, one he dedicates to Thompson.Depp has star charisma to spare, and his deadpan demeanor only adds to his allure.THE RUM DIARY, written and directed by Bruce Robinson, expertly cannonballs into the grit and glam with raw exuberance.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...Much of the dialogue's offbeat wit seems to come straight from Thompson's book. That distinctive dialogue is the movie's greatest asset.[A] jaunty adaptation....Depp's celebration of his old friend gives large shots of warmth...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.
