Factotum (2005)

Have you ever lost a job? Gotten wasted and woken up in a strange place? Been in a fight? Or spent a whole day drinking alone?

Then this film is for you.

Based on one of the greatest novels ever written, the film packs more truth than what most people like to hear. But this tough loving, is also what makes it delectable.

Matt Dillon does a very good job of portraying the drunk poet, in a role that's like a spiritual successor to the great Drugstore Cowboy.

It also work very well as a companion piece to the equally fantastic Barfly (also written by Charles Bukowski) with some scenes even overlapping.
