Diary Drunk

Today Brazil debut in the movie Diary Drunk ((The Rum Diary)


We could not afford to omit this fact here on the Blog. Many people do not understand why the movie is not debuting nationally, but only in some 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 in England at Oxford spreading through debate, and the United States, at various colleges, here and everywhere, should have followed the same design, mobilizing students 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.
So the movie will surely have a bad box office, not for being a bad movie, but because it is not understood and has not been distributed to all audiences.

Johnny Depp said he would like 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.
Of course, 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 up to three, 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 movie, read my post this a few months ago, at the time of U.S. debut
And good movie!

    1. Salete ... is an ignorance that even people not to post the display in all Brazilian cinemas, leaving entire states out! It's a shame ... : Cry:
      Another work that has not been well recognized.

    2. I think they should have the movie available for all cities, but I confess I watched the movie and thought it was terrible what they did to the ideas that could have come out of the project and did not happen or was poorly prepared.
      Anyway, anyway, there are people who are fans of the cast, fans of Hunter S. Thompson and Bruce would like to see the movie in theaters.

    3. Well at least someone knew criticize. Take a look: : Idea:


    4. I really really annoying not having distributed the film for viewing in large circuit, because I believe that should give everyone the right to see it.
      I watched him, I understood, but did not like. Aside from the ever so brilliant acting of Depp, the movie did not please me, unfortunately. Abs at all.

    5. And I would say that an article like this and a post like that, truly promote The Rum Diary.
      Congratulations, Sa!

    6. It's really a shame the film does have its premiere nacionla, and sure enough it has the ability to reach a wide audience!

    7. Hi,
      Thank Sa by post!
      It's a shame the movie was not able to be distributed throughout Brazil, it is a great movie! And Johnny ♥ is spectacular as always!
      I loved the movie!
      Johnny / Paul ♥ is perfect!
      I read the book, liked it a lot and also loved the adaptation for the movie!
      Tosches, after interviewing Johnny ♥, said the film was more based on the book that he was inspired by the book and written with a view of a now older Hunter! After the Hunter found his "voice" (his way of writing and how he himself)!
      The idea came from Bruce and Johnny ♥ loved!
      So they added a few things in the movie!
      And other changes came the interpretation of the book by Bruce! How to join the characters of the book, Yeamon and Paul on one, because the two are divided Hunter himself!
      The film also has the looks of Johnny ♥, a scene "hot" and of course, Johnny ♥! : Mrgreen:
      The book is not autobiographical, but it is based on the experiences that Hunter spent in Puerto Rico! ♥ As Johnny was a good friend of Hunter and Bruce wanted the film scoring situations that contributed to Hunter being the one who became famous! As their "voice", his way of writing, "ink and rage" and their way of understanding human society that appear in the film through the "conversation" with the lobster!
      I enjoyed the movie! It is a beautiful tribute to Hunter, has another great interpretation of Johnny ♥!
      The adaptation for the film is very good and has the right for the time, and when Hunter tom!
      Loved the movie! Loved the music! At the end of the credits goes to "The Mermaid Song" sung by Patti Smith! This song features the Johnny ♥ the only instrumental version!
      And Johnny ♥ is beautiful and wonderful as always!
      Clara : Grin:

    8. Thank you Clara!
      I have not seen, but I have followed throughout the project since 2009, and believe I have the same impressions that you.

    9. Depplovers of my heart, I sent an email to Vinny Movies and the answer was this:

      "Good afternoon,

      The Vinny Films offers films to be shown in cinemas and exhibitors (cinemas) choose whether to show the film or not, always getting the choice of the player. The Vinny Movies aims obviously maximum movie theaters showing the film, but as in Brazil there are few movie theaters, some exhibitors prefer to view films that bring grossing (sales) to it, more commercial films. And often harming movies like "Diary Drunk". Probably the film will in all over Brazil, but on different dates. "

      Now, we wait * - *

    10. : Shock: our guys, that discouragement that ta this here
      ta like the release of the film The Tourist lol : Roll:
      not yet watched it, the comment from Clara that gave me a lively kkkk
      even though I have seen, I think they should give a chance to the movie, here in Brazil had virtually no disclosure, because I know I sooooo unfair, even if the movie is bad or not? Movie PIRANHA 3D was released in the largest part of Brazil, well, I guess not even need to explain, right? : |

    11. Yeah Pollyanna, but when displaying Pirates of the Caribbean 5, he also held all the movie theaters in Brazil and widely disseminated, including several films had difficulty embarking on occasion, for lack of space. And so even one day of hunting and other hunter rs. Bjs to you.

    12. Hi,
      the movie is wonderful!
      Part of dissemination, distribution and exhibition is complex! And for me, the movie will appear over time in other cities too!
      But, these issues certainly do not interfere in the fact that the Drunk Diary is an excellent film!
      And when they watch the movie, pay attention to the main points! All of us who follow the work of Johnny ♥, know what they are, but if you will remember, I pointed them in my previous comment on this post!
      Who has the movie being displayed in any room near you, go as it is an opportunity to watch a great movie with a performance, as always, fantastic Johnny ♥ and imbued with a large and sensitive tribute to his friend, gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson!
      And Johnny is as always ♥, lindíiiiiiissimo!!
      So my tip is cinema popcorn and
      Johnny / Paul ♥! : Mrgreen:

    13. Clara cool you expose your opinion about the film and defend it with such enthusiasm! This is democracy. We expose our perceptions of things and say if a movie captivated us or not. We're finding every day with the news where it kills simply because people do not tolerate, not accept the differences and do not respect opinions that differ from yours. I think the artist's own appreciate differing opinions. I think it is very rewarding to know that there was no audience likes a particular job he did, because if he only find people who like everything he does, he just does not have what to improve, and we all know that while we live we are learning even improve. Bjs to you.

    14. Hi,
      Laura, we are certainly in a democratic space where everyone can air your opinions!
      And so I laid my honest and true opinion!
      I also know that some details of the film were shown through interviews and know that not everyone could join them! So, along with my opinion I added the

    15. Hi,
      sorry, I'm using a new and sometimes I fumble iPad! : Lol:
      But, regarding any contrary opinion, for sure!!
      With the same certainty that I loved the movie!
      And I have many reasons for this!
      I did my review with the intention of disagreeing with anyone, just wanted to add my opinion!
      I just saw now, Laura, you've seen the movie ... maybe if you re-watch it carefully commented on these points, because besides having the pleasure of seeing Johnny ♥ once again, you can enjoy the movie! Well, just a hint!
      Clara : Grin:

    16. Hi Laura
      is actually part of the movie : Smile:

    17. I watched's been a while that movie.
      I expected more, just that I liked, I found it funny.

    18. Clara, thank you for the tips and your ability to accept so elegantly my considerations. Would you rather take your advice and watch the movie again, but believe, I'm a cinephile, and as such, my critical eye is very keen. But your comments are very valid and especially if you realize that has knowingly. Big hug.

    19. What movie! Wonderful! Johnny more gorgeous than ever!
      And moved me too much homage to Hunter. The changes made in relation to the book happened to honor Hunter. Only then did what Johnny meant for the dissemination of the film, on this honor. They were able to clearly put the political thought and the attitude of the journalist Hunter! Johnny save, save Bruce!

    20. And attention, criticism of the film TamyDP posted up there is just so true about the movie. If someone wants to really understand what the movie is about, please see the review! Perfect and smart.

    21. I just ameeei the movie.
      I see johnny in every detail of the construction of the film,
      percebese all the love and dedication he had to do a good job. And succeeded!

      I understand that not everyone will like, as with any film.
      But TRD is a sensational film. Do not have a beginning, a climax and a surprising end, but it is nevertheless to be less interesting. A chronicle of the life of a journalist who seeks recognition and someone to share it, and a good dose of rum, of course.
      the film is a gorgeous tribute to the hunter in all possible ways. I'm sure from upstairs, he told an attentive "thank you" to Johnny, and he, in turn, felt he did his duty and promise to an old friend.

    22. I particularly found the maximum TRD. Of course, like any art form, in any medium (cinema, theater, music, etc.) may be divergent opinions, and all of them have to be respected, of course.
      I, as assiduous lover Hunter and everything related to it, I'm suspect to talk. I saw the Hunter every minute of the film, and found a splendid tribute that was made to him in the movie. Johnny gave a concert of action, and it's unfortunate that the film does not reach everyone, at least not for now.
      Track all production, wait for the movie for 3 years and finally see it, it was magical haha. And I can not wait to watch it again!

    23. What I have to say about that TRD is .....

      It is a "cult" film, to intelligent and educated people .... the rest is rest.

      And Johnny, for once, does not disappoint ...
      is MA-RA-VI-EHM-SO!

    24. The Rum Diary is divine. Waiting so long and really, Johnny does not disappoint, knew perfectly represent Hunter.
      It's a movie to view, review and relish in the role of Johnny, especially if joining depp sighs with friends. hahaha

      I'm rooting for it to go to other states and cities. ;-)

    25. Perfect interpretation of Johnny, gorgeous tribute to Hunter and to spare, so much fun!
      This movie is one of my favorites.
