Getting lost in the wilderness is easy to do. Everyday people are rescued from jungles, deserts and multi-levelled parking lots. You see them getting winched up by a rescue helicopter on the news and wonder, how did a brief bushwalk turn into a nightmare so quickly? In ‘The Rum Diary’ Johnny Depp gets lost in paradise and a film with no plot. Watch in amazement as something that’s supposed to be a tribute to writer Hunter S. Thompson wanders off into a vacuum of mediocrity never to be saved.
