Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/28/2011
"Connoisseurs of straw hats and cool sunglasses will find much to savor....A touching tribute to Thompson himself..."
Box Office - 10/27/2011
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[V]isually enchanting....It's impressive how relevant and seamless the whole film is..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/28/2011
"In every move, Depp makes you believe this was a passion project for the actor, one he dedicates to Thompson."
Movieline - 10/27/2011
"Depp has star charisma to spare, and his deadpan demeanor only adds to his allure."
Rolling Stone - 11/10/2011
"THE RUM DIARY, written and directed by Bruce Robinson, expertly cannonballs into the grit and glam with raw exuberance."
Total Film - 12/01/2011
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..."
USA Today - 10/28/2011
"Much of the dialogue's offbeat wit seems to come straight from Thompson's book. That distinctive dialogue is the movie's greatest asset."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2011
"[A] jaunty adaptation....Depp's celebration of his old friend gives large shots of warmth..."

Product Description:

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.
