||Synopsis: Henry Chinaski never cared for the American dream, the thought of needing to become 'something' and fit into the system disgusts him. He believes that life is free and yours to live like you see fit, and if that in some cases involves copious amounts of whiskey then so be it. Henry spends his days drinking and listening to the radio, and he spends his nights drinking and fighting against Eddy who he thinks personifies shallowness and shameless self promoting. Sometimes in the middle of this he finds the time to jot down a few lines of poetry or a short story. After fighting Eddy and winning for a change Henry is thrown out of his regular bar where Eddy is a bartender. This leads him to seek another watering hole where he happens to find Wanda who is a barfly, in her own words "if another man came along with a fifth of whiskey, I'd go with him".

"Barfly" was a fairly successful film when it was released and garnered
generally favorable reviews. Roger Ebert gave it four out of four, and
along with "Angel Heart," it helped solidify 1987 as the Year of Mickey
However, almost twenty years later it isn't talked so much about
anymore, and I feel it deserves to be. Rourke gives one of his finest
performances as Henry, a loner who walks hunched over like the
Hunchback of Notre Dame. Henry works at a bar as a runner - delivering
orders and such. But he's always getting into drunken brawls with the
bartender, usually losing.
One day Henry's life takes a turn when he meets a downtrodden woman
(Faye Dunaway) and they embark on a relationship.
"Barfly" is a great film. Rourke was vocal later on in his career about
his dislike of director Barbet Schroeder, but Schroeder's direction is
part of what makes this film so good.
However, the absolute best aspect of the movie is Rourke's performance.
Embodying the late writer Charles Bukowski (whose work this was based
upon, and who had a brief cameo in the film), Rourke is unrecognizable
- like Billy Bob Thornton in "Sling Blade," his entire demeanor and
physicality seems to change.
I highly recommend "Barfly" - it's funny, dark, witty, touching and
downright enjoyable. One of the best films of the '80s.
