Bukowski Movie Poster Released...Still Relatively Vomit-Free
As most of you know, Charles Bukowski is pretty much the patron saint of drinkers. Well, he's the patron something anyway - all we know is our liver cringes every time it hears his name. We recommend you try to get in touch with your inner Bukowski any chance you get, whether by reading his books or watching Barfly, one of the best drinking movies known to man.
Now, they're making a new Bukowski movie based on his book Factotum, starring Matt Dillon as Henry Chinaski, the down at the heels Bukowski doppelganger played by Mickey Rourke in Barfly. The fellas over at Chud.com have gotten their hands on a Factotum poster, and it shows Dillon being pretty damned badass, if we do say so. Check out what they have to say, and then head on over to Chud to see the poster.
Dillon is Henry Chinanski, one of Bukowski’s alter egos, a drunk who drifts from shitty job to shitty job while trying to sell his writing. Along the way he falls in with Lili Taylor and Marisa Tomei, who looks pretty hot when playing a completely dissolute whore. Also, Fisher Stevens looks fucking rough, and I can’t tell if that’s for the movie or from his post-robot life. Factotum is a little bit lighter than Barfly, but still includes the kind of degeneracy one expects from Bukowski.
Factotum is being brought to you by IFC Films and will open August 18th in NYC before going wider across this great land of ours.

Plus, if you can't wait until August to get your Bukowski on, there's a documentary called Born Into This that's supposed to be damned good. In fact, we're inspired to pick up a copy of our own and drink a couple fifths of gin to celebrate. Man, Thursdays are great.
