Movie description
Based on a semiautobiographical short story by poet and screenwriter Charles Bukowksi and directed by Barbet Schroeder, BARFLY offers insight into the world of the alcoholic, where all that matters is the next drink. Henry Chinaski (Mickey Rourke) is a talented writer of prolific prose; unfortunately, he's also a skid-row alcoholic with a violent temper. He picks fights nightly with Eddie (Frank Stallone), the bartender at the local watering hole the Golden Horn and lives in a seedy tenement, stealing food and trying to scrape together enough money for booze. Fellow alcoholic Willa Wilcox (Faye Dunaway) catches Henry's eye at the bar one afternoon, and although she has a reputation for being unstable, the two embark on a relationship with each other and the bottle. Their liaison is full of drama, humor, and irrational behavior; it is put to the test when Henry meets Tully (Alice Krige), a rich, privileged literary editor who wants to publish his stories and save him from himself. The film features exceptional performances from Rourke and Dunaway as they portray the highs and lows that are part and parcel of alcoholism--as well as love.

Schroeder signed a contract with Bukowski promising not to change any of the script without Bukowski's permission.

Editorial reviews
"...Some kind of small, classic, one-of-a-kind comedy....A big, broad, mesmerizing performance by [Rourke]..."
Canby

Included in the New York Times "10 Best Films of 1987"
New York Times - p.II,23 - Vincent Canby

"...Bukowski's dialog is punctuated with wry philosophical comments on life....[Rourke's] performance is the centerpiece of the film, and keeps it buoyantly alive throughout..."
Variety - Cart. (05/13/1987)

"...Faye Dunaway drops by with her beauty, humor, and screen smarts....She convinces and captivates. The smile is undiminished, the energy unflagging, the attention to detail unfailing....Faye is still a class act..."
Film Comment - Mary Corliss (07/01/1987)

"...[A] dark, wry, toughly tender movie....BARFLY is beautifully written, acted and directed..."
Los Angeles Times - Michael Wilmington (11/05/1987)
