So I’ve been a fan of Barfly for years and years and when I found out that another interprtation of Bukoski’s Henry Chinaski was made with Matt Dillon, I was rather intrigued by it. I’ve never read any of Bukowski’s books and probably never will, but the movie Barfly is incredible.
My expectations were pretty high as I like Matt Dillon quite a bit, especially when he plays offbeat roles ala Drugstore Cowboy. This movie had Chinaski acting more as a psychopath than a sociopath. Mickey Rourke was much better. Let’s not forget Barlfy was a Coppola film.
But in general this movie sucked. It was dull and uninteresting. Even seeing Marisa Tomei topless didn’t help it. To be honest, I couldn’t even watch it all. The only redeeming quality was some of the camera angles.
Better luck next time.
