Joblo: Rum Diary Review

Joblo: Don't go into The Rum Diary expecting Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas. That maybe be the way the film is being marketed, but faithful to the posthumously novel by Hunter S. Thompson, it's a totally different beast. While Thompson's story is fictional, it's obvious the story is at-least somewhat autobiographical, as Thompson did spend the early part of his career learning his trade in San Juan (while not drinking copious amounts of run), and this is an intriguing look at the man's beginnings.

The story is too old to be commented.
