Barfly

15 yrs 100 minutes 1987 7.3

The 1987 film, Barfly, is based on the autobiographical authorship of Charles Bukowski. According to Bonniers filmguide, this is a “surprisingly entertaining depiction of the declining existences of The Golden Horn bar in Los Angeles. The main character is a ridiculously macho, drunken author, played with great comedy by Mickey Rourke. Fay Dunaway is exceptional as the author’s drunken sister in the humiliation”. When the alcoholic writer is discovered by a culturally interested millionaire’s daughter, things really start to get interesting…
