The Rum Diary 2.0 stars

Johnny Depp delivers his second film-incarnation of a Hunter S. Thompson character: Paul Kemp, a freelance journalist who takes a job at a financially crippled newspaper in Puerto Rico. Paul is quickly tangled in a web of illegal real estate deals, dangerous romantic prospects, and all manner of alcohol-related hijinks. The script is unapologetically literary; everyone speaks from Thompson’s prose. The direction, much like Thompson’s writing, meanders more than it hits the mark. 2011.
