BUKOWSKI BARFLY PDF

Sean Penn was originally going to play Chinaski, but he demanded his own director. Barbet Schroeder informed Penn that he was the only one who would direct the film — he had been the one to convince Bukowski to write the screenplay in the first place, after all. Rourke ended up taking the part, which Bukowski later described in both negative and positive terms over the years. Mickey Rourke stayed with the dialogue to the word and the sound intended. What surprised me was that he added another dimension to the character, in spirit. Mickey appeared to really love his role, and yet without exaggeration he added his own flavor, his zest, his madness, his gamble to Henry Chinaski without destroying the intent or the meaning of the character.

Mickey appeared to really love his role, and yet without exaggeration he added his own flavor, his zest, his madness, his gamble to Henry Chinaski without destroying the intent or the meaning of the character. To add spirit to spirit can be dangerous but not in the hands of a damned good actor.

However, he would later say that he felt Rourke went overboard. The quote below can be found in the Bukowski documentary Born Into This. He had it all kind of exaggerated, untrue. He was a little bit showoff about it. So, no, it was kind of misdone. People became so used to seeing shit on film that they no longer realized it was shit. There is an ongoing debate among Bukowski fans as to whether Barfly or Factotum , starring Matt Dillon as Henry Chinaski, is the better film.

Which side are you on? Do you think Bukowski would have liked Factotum or not? Tell us in the comments below. Charles Bukowski Videos.

One night not long ago, Charles Bukowski was holding down the short end of the bar. He was looking around with wonderment on his face, because he had spent most of his life getting drunk in joints like this, but tonight was different, tonight they were making a movie inspired by his life, and they had rented out Big Ed's to shoot in. You filled people's days with your presence, and maybe you'd get a few free drinks now and then. We were hunched down with our elbows on the padded edge of the bar, talking quietly, like conspirators. Linda, Bukowski's wife, was taking down mental notes of everything.
