BARFLY
1987, Park Circus/MGM, 100 min, USA, Dir: Barbet Schroeder

Legendary L.A. scribe Charles Bukowski penned the semiautobiographical screenplay for this gritty but graceful profile of an alcoholic writer. Mickey Rourke stars as Henry Chinaski, subsisting on menial jobs and the occasional writing gig as he spends the nights drinking and fighting with bartender Eddie (Frank Stallone). Golden Globe nominee Faye Dunaway costars as the kindred spirit who takes up with Henry after the two meet at another local saloon.

REVERSAL OF FORTUNE

Jeremy Irons won a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Actor for his wonderfully sly performance as aristocrat Claus von Bülow, accused of attempted murder of his rich wife, Sunny (Glenn Close). Costarring Ron Silver as Alan Dershowitz.
