German fans absolutely mobbed Johnny Depp when he premiered his new film Minamata at the Berlin Film Festival. Looks like Johnny is doing a decent job of resurrecting his career. Instead of playing a debauched self-indulgent character (like Hunter S Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,) Depp’s Life Magazine photographer in this film is a real-life hero. Depp is producer, and his character exposed the horrible impact of industrial pollution in a Japanese town in 1971. He did the world a favor by documenting exactly what toxic mercury poisoning did to a small and helpless fishing community in Life, thereby stimulating the examination of corporate greed.
