Mar 17, Marilyn rated it it was amazing. The movie The Barfly peeked my interest in Charles Bukowski and since seeing it I have purchased almost all his books.
He is scriot, dirty, dingy, a drunk, a womanizer, a gambler, and best of all he knows it and does not care. Oh, and he is brilliant. I grew up in that area and found it easy to imagine that scraggly old man walking down the streets.
Maybe I even saw him? His books of ficti The movie The Barfly peeked my interest in Charles Bukowski and since seeing it I scriipt purchased almost all his books.
His books of fiction, poems, etc. Apr 06, Andy rated it it was amazing Shelves: A good screenplay by Buk in spite of his later complaints about the film.
The dialogue is funny and contains condensed versions of some of his short stories and poems. Contains lot of cool pics of Bukowski cutting up on set with Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway, of whom he once remarked, “I never saw a woman that beautiful in a dive bar”. Jul 29, Surrealist Abdul rated it really liked it. Great story highly recommended. Mar 21, Jill Pesqueira rated it it was amazing. Loved the book and the movie is a classic.
Faye Dunaway and crazy Mickey Rourke. I think I will watch it again. Mar 03, Dane Cobain rated it it was amazing. In fact, I enjoyed it more than the movie, and the movie was pretty good. This, though, is the original screenplay, which Bukowski wrote based loosely upon his own life, as he did with the rest of his work.
It stars Hank Chinaski, a barfly, and Wanda Wilcox, his woman. The action pretty much just follows the interactions between the two of them, and so that alone should be enough for you to get a good idea of what to expect here.
And hey — watch the movie afterwards, too. This is the script to the movie Barfly. It was a bit awkward me for to read something in script form.
The Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb)
Its full of all the Bukowski cliches and there are a few laughs. Not that this is bad but I’d recomend Bukowski’s Hollywood which is his account of the making of the Barfly movie, and even watching the film before I would reading the script.
Really this is probably only worth your trouble if your a Bukowski completist. Jul 18, Ned Stenger White rated it it was amazing. I don’t understand it. JIM You’re not supposed to think about it. I think the whole trick is not to think about it. Jul 24, Michael rated it it was amazing Shelves: She looks like some sort of stress goddess.
Feb 16, Donnie Darko rated it it was amazing.
Feb 28, Matthew Konkel rated it it was amazing. Anyone looking for the way screen stories should and need to be told, should look to Barfly. Actually, with the advent of digtal, I see a trend toward this kind of cinema, but done independently of course.
No car chases, bullet catches, special effects or bullshit, and frankly no beginning and no ending either. A toast to you, CB.
Jun 29, Aaron rated it it was amazing. This was the last piece by Bukowski I’ll ever be able to read. Sure I can break my lifelong record of never reading poetry but I doubt I ever will.
I just don’t get or like poetry. I can’t believe there’s no more Bukowski or tales of Chinaski left for me to read. At least Irvine Welsh is still alive. Okay mayhap I will try one last time with this poetry business. I mean if it’s Bukowski. How bad can it be? Feb 14, Azaghedi rated it liked it Shelves: Chinaski works better as a character in a novel than in a film. There isn’t enough development, either of him or the people around him, to make this a compelling screenplay.
That’s the problem with writing for a format that just gives you a couple of hours to work with; I don’t think it’s the proper format for a Chinaski. Jan 15, Alejandro rated it really liked it Recommends it for: At a time when I was becoming aware on how the world ticks and my hormonal years were drawing to a close, I fell in love with being drunk and depressed over a ‘broad’, go figure.

Then came along my absent father, my ass kicking mother fucker, my personified conscience, my truth, my being okay with being a pervert. Dec 25, Luke rated it it was ok. Not too impressed, but don’t read too many screenplays. Interesting how there doesn’t seem like much to this screen play, but it really comes to life in the movie. Recommended if you like Bukowski. Jan 02, Adam Bricker rated it it was amazing. In keeping with most of Bukowski’s work, this book is beautiful and brutal and twisted and thought-provoking.
Jun 02, Nicholas Koster rated it it was amazing. The Iceman Cometh with a happy ending. Jan 15, Brent Legault rated it did not like it. Ought to be retitled as Barfy. Sep 06, Rachel Lesch rated it it was amazing. I love his work, this was no exception Oct 17, Elliott rated it it was ok.
It was like the movie, which is like most of Bukowski’s novels especially “Women,” which is not necessarily a bad thing. Mar 29, Sujay Anjankar rated it it was amazing. Oh how I long for more Chinaski. Scripy 29, Allen Taylor rated it liked it. Truly for the devoted Bukowski fan. No one else will probably like it.
Mar 21, Kristyn rated it really liked it. Classic Bukowski shenanigans as always. Was a short one bit a good one. Another novel to add to my collection. The best review of this book or the movie it was based on Scripg read–in fact the best review I’ve ever barfyl was this one sentence: Is that an adverb?
