Today Brazil debut in the film Diary Drunk ((The Rum Diary)
We could not afford to omit this fact here on the Blog. Many people do not understand why the film is not debuting nationally, but only in a few theaters in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.
Unbelievable leave out entire regions, as the South, Midwest, North and Northeast.
The explanation is that those responsible for the dissemination of the film seems to have no idea of the importance and meaning of Hunter Thompson!
For if Johnny was spreading in England at Oxford, through debate, and the United States in various colleges, here and everywhere, to have followed the same project, involving academics and journalists. Because it is not a commercial film.
If people only favors popular horror movies, action and comedy, it's because the propaganda leads to it.
Show them the best, explain why things that surely the public is smart enough to understand. This also occurs in music.
Then the movie will surely have a bad box office, not for being a bad movie, but not understood and has not been distributed to all public.
Johnny Depp said he wanted to promote "The Rum Diary" with a bus tour through colleges.
"It's a special little film," says Depp, "The Rum Diary" is one that I feel should be promoted very unlike most films.
Sure, there are the press conferences (press junkets), premieres and everything. But Hunter used to do lectures at colleges and stuff.
I feel like I want Bruce and I getting on a bus and driving to three or four different colleges, and go talk to people. "
For those who want to know a little more of the reasons that led Johnny to make this film, read my post this a few months ago, in the season premiere in the USA
And good movie!
