Charles Bukowsi played by Matt Dillon: a cool take on the depths of rawness that Bukowski explored, too cool perhaps. His writting is totally viceral and personal, the movie fails to transmit the author's very difficult nature.
Synopsis: " Henry Chinaski considers himself a writer, and on occasion writes. Mostly he quests for the booze and women that sidetrack and seduce, rather than inspire greatness. When he falls for Jan, the soulful connection fails to save either from their self-destructive ways, and the relationship totters between earnest connection and reflective loathing."
"Bukowski on Work: Bums and indolents, all of us working there realized our days were numbered. So we relaxed and waited for them to find out how inept we were. Meanwhile, we lived with the system, gave them a few honest hours, and drank togetherat night."
Barfly with Mickey Rourke is my favorite take on Chinaski (Bukowski's alter-ego) and his "Hollywood" my favorite book ever. TRAILER
