165: SFFCH – Barfly

165 Barfly

Booze, poetry, fist fights, booze, philosophy, booze, romance and booze. We couldn’t really ask for much more from this rather unassuming film this week, Abi’s choice of Barfly from 1987, a semi-autobiographical account of the life of renowned and infamous poet Charles Bukowski. We think there is something for everyone this time around, whether you’re an artist or an addict, in a film which includes: stealing corn, strange walks, put-upon paramedics, sadistic neighbours and probably one of the most authentic love stories put on film.
