Описание: Фильм поставлен по автобиографическому роману известного американского писателя Чарлза Буковски, завсегдатая многочисленных питейных заведений, откда он черпает не только горячительные напитки, но и темы для своих произведений. Критики отметили мастерство Рурка и Данауэй, вдохновенных экранных собутыльников, а также музыкальную дорожку фильма, составленную из джаза и ритм-блюзов. (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: I probably would never have bothered with this movie had it not been for the involvement of Faye Dunaway, who must be considered one of the two or three finest film actresses of the last thirty years. For the record, "Barfly" isn't a bad picture, and it holds a memorable performance by Mickey Rourke; its presentation of the lower depths is realistic and entertaining. Also, I liked comparing the resemblance of Frank Stallone to the more famous Sylvester. But for me the best thing about the picture is Faye Dunaway's masterful portrayal of the alcoholic Wanda. Miss Dunaway is usually the best thing about any picture she's in, and in what is her best role since "Mommie Dearest," she brings the movie great depth and subtlety--here the fine line between acting and being is all but extinguished. Think back to Dunaway's best: from "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Puzzle of a Downfall Child" on through "Chinatown," "Three Days of the Condor," the Oscar-winning performance in "Network," then continuing with
"Eyes of Laura Mars" and climaxing with "Mommie Dearest," Faye Dunaway has given us a record of fine acting that can be said to rival that of the legendary actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age. Her performance in "Barfly" qualifies for inclusion on this superior record.
