Barfly
1987
*****
Director: Barbet Schroeder
Cast: Mickey Rourke, Faye Dunaway, Alice Krige, Frank Stallone

Cult novelist/poet Charles Bukowski’s incredibly funny and disarming autobiographical story about a bohemic poet whose only worry in life is where he is going to get his next drink. Mickey Rourke does not give a performance, he is Henry Chinanski.
