Hank Chinaski, Parishioners,
has always been our favourite Barfly
A good list of Barfly movie quotes is here
Nothing but the dripping sink. Empty bottle. Euphoria. Youth fenced in, stabbed and shaved. Taut words propped up to die…
Most recently, Parishioners, I watched Factotum –
the fictional alter-ego of Factotum author Charles Bukowski
which gives both a before and an after
to the period glamourised in Barfly.
NYT review here – much information!
…few images telegraph the paradox of the American dream better than a drunk passed out in the shadow of Hollywood
OH – correcshiaan (that’s Oasis, ‘Tish) Major Omission – Marisa Tomei – My Cousin Vinnie is one o teh bestest movies evah!
