Day 95

Movie: The Rum Diary
Starring: Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart
Genre: Drama, Comedy,
Year: 2011

Plot: A young reporter moves to Puerto Rico in an attempt to make a living as a writer.

This is based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name.

This film and it's novel are a pre-shadow to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by ten years, but you still see the elements that made Hunter S Thompson's work great.
Depp plays this character to perfection, always keeping in the back of your mind an image of Thompson.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Finding your voice is not always the easiest thing to do but it's the most important.  And always stick to your guns.
