Summary
  • "Before The Wrestler took the world by storm, Barfly was considered Mickey Rourke's most passionate and gritty performance. This dark tale of drunkenness, violence and self loathing reflects his brooding persona perfectly. Add to this the fact that his charecter is a phenomenally talented but self destructive artist and you'd swear the role had been written for him. Barfly is the fictionalised autobiography by cult writer and underground hero, Charles Bukowski and is an unflinching portrayal of life one step up from the gutter. Rourke's performance as a self-hating, mean spirited anti-hero is dark and brutal but retains a kind of selfish, desperate beauty, especially in respect to the doomed relationship that develops between him and a fellow lost soul"--Container.
