Hunter S. Thompson’s “The Rum Diary” was based on his time as a hack journalist in Puerto Rico in 1960, and it mixes his hard-drinking, hard-living struggle with a clear-eyed look at the rapacious development of the island by Nord Americanos. Johnny Depp does another loving impersonation of The Good Dr. and Aaron Eckhart makes a fine Ugly American, with Amber Heard as the wild-child chick between them. OK, so it’s not as good as the book, but that’s true of every Thompson adaptation.
