Format: MP3 Music
The Rum Diary doesn't quite know what kind of film it wants to be. On the one hand it's another wry look at life through the alcohol-soaked and frequently hilarious lens of the late Gonzo author Hunter S. Thompson, on whose novel this film is based, and on whom the lead character Paul Kemp is clearly modeled. On the other hand, it's a comparatively serious examination of the American suppression of native culture of Puerto Rico in the 1950s, specifically the way in which rich industrialists manipulate the system and steal from the local landowners in order to line their pockets. Then again, it's a romance, in which the Kemp character falls in lust with the beautiful young wife of a shady entrepreneur. But, most of all, it's a love letter to Puerto Rico itself - the unspoiled beaches, the sunny climes, the generous people, and the seemingly unlimited supply of alcohol that keep the wheels of the island greased.

The film stars Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Rispoli, Amber Heard, and a hilarious Giovanni Ribisi, and is directed by Bruce Robinson, making his return to the cinema 19 years after his last feature Jennifer Eight, and a full 24 years since his acclaimed debut, Withnail & I. The Jennifer Eight connection also allowed Robinson to reunite with his composer on that film, Christopher Young, although the two scores could not be more different: whereas Jennifer Eight was all about icy sensuality and tension, The Rum Diary is a light, breezy, upbeat jazz score which allows Young to return to a genre which he clearly loves, but is only occasionally allowed to explore.
