The Rum Diary
The rum diary is based on the mythical American journalist Hunter S. Thompson unpublished novel with the same name. Thompson's alter ego, journalist Paul Kemp, is played by Johnny Depp. The inspiration for the autobiographical and alcoholic book comes from Thompsons own experiences as a journalist in Puerto Rico in the 1960s. Lotta Zachrisson writes in Moviezine "Johnny Depp and his amazing set of faces and hungover body language are always entertaining to watch."
