The Rum Diary
No Such Thing As 470-proof Alcohol Scene
Clip Description
Moberg (Giovanni Ribisi) drops by the apartment to make a batch of Puerto Rican moonshine that he is claiming to be 470 proof. When Paul (Johnny Depp) tries to light up a smoke, Moberg drinks some of the alcohol and blows fire it's so strong.
Movie Description
Tired of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, itinerant journalist Paul Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Lotterman. Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late ‘50s version of Hemingway’s “The Lost Generation,” Paul soon becomes entangled with a very attractive American woman, Chenaults and her fiancée Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals.  It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.
