Diary of a journalist Drunk

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

Today debut in Brazil the film 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 leaving entire regions without, 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 disclosing in Oxford, 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 focuses popular horror movies, action and comedy, it's because the advertising leads them to it.
Show them the better, explain why things that certainly the public is smart enough to understand. This is also in music.
Then the film will certainly have a lousy box office, not because it is a bad movie, but not being understood and not being distributed to all audiences.

Johnny Depp said he wanted 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 premiere and everything. But Hunter used to give lectures at colleges and things like that.
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 do this movie, read this my post a few months ago, when the US debut
And good movie!

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

    2. I think they should have released the film 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 film in theaters.

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


    4. I really very annoying not having distributed the film for viewing in large circuit because I believe 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 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 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 film 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, liked and loved also the adaptation to the film !!!
      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 the interpretation of the book by Bruce !!! How to join the characters in the book, Yeamon and Paul into one, because the two are divided Hunter himself !!!
      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 that Hunter spent in Puerto Rico !!! As Johnny ♥ was a close friend of Hunter and Bruce wanted to punctuate the film situations that contributed to Hunter being the one who became known !!! As its "voice", his way of writing, "ink and rage," and his 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 for the film is very good and has the right tone for the time, moment and Hunter !!!
      I 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 !!!
      Clara 😀

    8. Thank Clara !!
      I have not watched, but I have followed the whole project since 2009, and I believe I will have the same impressions 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 show films that bring higher box office (revenue) 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. 😯 our guys, that discouragement that ta it here
      ta like the release of the film The Tourist lol : Roll:
      not yet watched it, the review of Clara gave me a lively kkkk
      even without I have attended, I think they should give a chance to the film here in Brazil had virtually no disclosure, know why I think sooo unfair, even if the film is bad or not? the PIRANHA 3D movie was released in most part of Brazil, well, I guess not even need to explain, right? 😐

    11. It is Pollyanna, but when the Pirates of the Caribbean display 5, he also held all the movie theaters in Brazil and widely disseminated, including several films had difficulty launching at the time, for lack of space. And it is like that, a hunting day and another hunter, rs. Bjs to you.

    12. Hi,
      the film is wonderful !!!
      Part of disclosure, distribution and exhibition is complex !!! And for me, the film will appear over time in other cities too !!!
      But these issues, certainly not interfere in the fact that the Diary of a Drunk Journalist is a great movie !!!
      And when they watch the film, pay attention to the main points !!! All of us who follow Johnny ♥ work, we know what they are, but if they 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:
      Clara 😀

    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 appreciates different opinions. I think it is very rewarding to know that there was not public likes a particular job he did because if he only find people who like everything he does, he just does not have room for improvement, and we all know that while we live we are learning even to improve. Bjs to you.

    14. Hi,
      Laura, surely we are in a democratic space where everyone can air your opinions !!
      And so I exposed 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 !!! 😆
      But about any contrary opinion, for sure !!!!
      With the same certainty that I loved the movie !!!
      And, I have many reasons for this !!!
      I have done my comment with the intention to disagree with anyone, just wanted to add my opinion !!!
      I just saw now, Laura, you've seen the film ... 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, it's just a tip !!!
      Clara 😀

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

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

    18. Clear, many thanks for the tips and your ability to accept so elegantly my considerations. Would you rather accept your advice and re-watch the movie, but believe I am a cinephile, and as such, my critical eye is very keen. But your comments are very valid and above all one realizes that you have knowingly. Big hug.

    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 Hunter. Only then I understood 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 someone wants to really understand what it is about the film, please see the criticism! Perfect and intelligent.

    21. I just ameeei the film.
      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. It does 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 from above, he said a friendly "thank you" to Johnny, and he, in turn, felt that his duty and promise to an old friend.

    22. I personally found the TRD maximum. Of course, like any art form, in any medium (cinema, theater, music, etc.) there may be differing opinions, all of which 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 performance show, and it's unfortunate that the film does not reach everyone, at least not yet.
      Monitor all production, wait for the movie for 3 years and finally see it, it was magical haha. And I do not wait to watch it again!

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

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

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

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

      I'm rooting for it to go to other states and cities. 😉

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