Diary of a Journalist Drunk

April 20 • by Salette • 25 CommentsMovies , The Rum Diary

Today debut in Brazil the movie Diary of a Drunk Journalist ((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 some theaters of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.
Unbelievable leave entire regions outside 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, in various colleges, here and everywhere, to have followed the same project, mobilizing students and journalists. Because it is not a commercial film.

If the people only favors popular horror movies, action and comedy, is because the advertising leads to it.
Show them the best, explain why things, which of course the public is smart enough to understand. This is also in music.
So the movie you might have a bad box, not because it is a bad movie, but not to be understood and not have been distributed to all audiences.

Johnny Depp said he would like to promote "The Rum Diary" with a bus tour of colleges.

"It's a special little film," says Depp, "The Rum Diary" is one that I feel should be promoted very unlike most movies.
Of course, there are the press conferences (press junkets), the premieres and all. But Hunter used to give 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 Johnny to do this movie, read this my post a few months ago, when the US debut
And good movie!

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

    2. I think they should have offered the movie for all cities, but I confess I watched the movie and found it 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, Hunter S. Thompson and Bruce fans who would like to see the movie in theaters.

    3. Well at least someone knew criticize. See: : Idea:


    4. I really annoying not having distributed the film for display on large circuit, because I think that should give anyone the right to see it.
      I watched him, I understood, but I did not like. Aside from the ever so brilliant acting of Depp, the film did not please me, unfortunately. Abs to 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 such a shame the film does not have its nacionla debut, and he certainly has the ability to reach a large audience !!!

    7. Hi,
      Sá required by the post !!!
      It's a shame the movie was not able to be distributed throughout Brazil as it is a great movie !!! And Johnny ♥ is spectacular as always !!!
      I loved the movie !!!
      Johnny / Paul ♥ is perfect !!!
      I read the book, I enjoyed and also loved the adaptation for the movie !!!
      Tosches, after interviewing Johnny ♥, said the film was more than based on the book, he was inspired by the book and written with the vision of a Hunter already older !!! After the Hunter found his "voice" (his way of writing and as himself) !!!
      The idea was Bruce and Johnny ♥ loved !!!
      So they added a few things in the movie !!!
      And other changes came for interpreting the book by Bruce !!! How to join the characters in the book, Yeamon and Paul on one, because the two are divided Hunter own !!!
      The film also has the looks of Johnny ♥ a "hot" scene and of course, Johnny ♥ !!! : Mrgreen:
      The book is not autobiographical, but is based on the experiences Hunter spent in Puerto Rico !!! As Johnny ♥ was a close friend of Hunter and Bruce wanted to score in the film situations that contributed to Hunter being the one who became known !!! As its "voice", the way you write, "ink and rage", and its way of understanding human society that appears in the film through the "conversation" with lobster !!!
      I enjoyed the movie !!! It is a beautiful tribute to Hunter, has another great interpretation of Johnny ♥ !!!
      The adaptation of the movie is very good and has the right tone for the season, time and Hunter !!!
      Loved the movie !!! I 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 !!!

    8. Thanks Clara !!
      I have not watched, but I have followed the whole project since 2009, and I believe I will have the same impressions than you.

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

      "Good afternoon,

      The Vinny Movies offers the films to be shown in theaters, and exhibitors (cinemas) choose whether to display the movie 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 display movies that bring grossing (billing) to it, more commercial films. And often damaging films as "Diary of a Drunk Journalist". Probably the film will in all over Brazil, but on different dates. "

      Now we have to wait * - *

    10. : Shock: our guys, that discouragement that ta it here
      ta like the release of the film The Tourist lol : Roll:
      not yet watched it, the comment Clara gave me a lively kkkk
      even without I have attended, I think they should give a chance to the movie, here in Brazil had virtually no disclosure, know why I think sooo unfair, even if the film is bad or not? the PIRANHA 3D film was released in most part of Brazil, well, I guess not even need to explain, right? : |

    11. Well Pollyanna, but when the Pirates of the Caribbean display 5, he also held all movie theaters in Brazil and widely disseminated, including several films had difficulty embarking on occasion, for lack of space. And it is also, a hunting day and another hunter, lol. Bjs to you.

    12. Hi,
      the film is wonderful !!!
      Part of disclosure, distribution and exhibition is complex !!! And for me, the movie will appear over time in other cities too !!!
      But these issues, certainly not interfere in the fact that the Diary of a drunken journalist is a great movie !!!
      And when they see the film, pay attention to the main points !!! All of us who follow Johnny ♥ work, we know what they are, but if you want to remember, I pointed out the in my previous comment in this post !!!
      Who has the film being shown in any room near you, go, 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. Legal Clara you expose your opinion about the movie and defend it with such enthusiasm! This is democracy. We can expose our perceptions of things and tell if a film captivated us or not. We are meeting every day with the news where it simply kills because people do not tolerate, do not accept the differences and do not respect opinions that differ from yours. I think the artist himself enjoying differing opinions. I think it is very rewarding to know that there was not public likes a particular work he did because if he only find people who like everything he does, he just did not have room for improvement, and we all know that while we live we are learning even improving. Bjs to you.

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

    15. Hi,
      sorry, I'm using a new and sometimes iPad fumble me !!! : Lol:
      But about 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 to disagree with anyone, just wanted to add my opinion !!!
      I just saw now, Laura, you've seen the movie ... maybe if you go back to watch it carefully at these points that I said, because in addition to having the pleasure of seeing Johnny ♥ again, you may like movie !!! Well, just a tip !!!
      Clara : Grin:

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

    17. I watched's been a while that movie.
      I expected more, but I liked it, I thought it was funny.

    18. Clear, many thanks for the tips and for their ability to accept so elegantly my considerations. Would you rather take your advice and re-watch the movie, but believe me, I'm a cinephile, and as such, my critical eye is very keen. But your comments are very valid and especially if realize that you have knowledge of the facts. Best regards.

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

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

    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 could !!

      I understand that not everyone will like, as with any movie.
      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. It is 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 tribute to belissima hunter in every possible way. I'm sure that from up there, he said 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 TRD maximum. Of course, like any art form, in any medium (cinema, theater, music, etc.) can be differing 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 in every minute of the movie, and I thought splendid homage that was made to him in the movie. Johnny gave a performance show, and it's unfortunate that the film does not reach everyone, at least not yet.
      Monitor the entire 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 TRD is that ... ..

      It's a movie "cult" for intelligent and educated people .... the rest is rest.

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

    24. The rum diary is divine. So long waiting and really, Johnny does not disappoint, knew perfectly represent Hunter.
      It is a movie to see, review and be delighted by the performance of Johnny, especially if joining sighs with depp friends. hahaha

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

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