This film is based on the acclaimed 1975 novel by Charles Bukowski. Henry Chinaski (Matt Dillon) considers himself a writer and on occassion writes. Mostly he quests for the booze and women that sidetrack and seduce, rather than inspire greatness. When he falls for Jan (Lili Taylor), the souldful connection fails to save either from their self-destructive ways, and the relationship totters between earnest connection and reflective loathing. With exceptional performances that capture the intoxicated journey through life and art, this film is the story of a man living on the edge. Marisa Tomei also stars. Extras include making of documentary and 8 deleted scenes.
