|X| FILM |X| The Rum Diary

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas got my rocks off. It seems in the world of film, Hunter S. Thompson + Johnny Depp = success– although I do believe Bill Murray’s portrayal in Where the Buffalo Roam, was of a higher caliber. I’ve read many of H.S. Thompson’s rants and recounts, but his only published work of fiction, The Rum Diary, has always been a favorite. I can only pray the movie does the book justice. You have time before the release. Read it. -M. Eichert
