Factotum Comes Through
Factotum, based on the writing of Charles Bukowski, is GREAT! I went in with low expectations. "Dillon's too pretty to play Hank Chinaski" I thought. Within the first ten minutes of the film Matt Dillon had my respect and for the rest of the movie I got lost in Bukowski land. The pacing, the awkward silences, the hillarious though subtle humor all makes for a fantastic movie, for Bukowski fans and, I would guess, for those unfamilliar with his work.
