TRANSMISSIONS: BARFLY IN 35MM

Projecting echoes of the past for a better future.

Co-Presented by Amoeba Music

Funneling all of his drunken reverie into his alter ego Henry Chinaski, Charles Bukowski outlined an ideal of the romantic loner, and his collaborator Barbet Schroeder carried it to the screen. Brought to life by an in-the-pocket Mickey Rourke, Henry bumbles life in a series of dive bars and flop houses in Los Angeles, eventually bonding with fellow boozehound Wanda (Faye Dunaway). In case you’re wondering, yes, this is the greatest film released by the Cannon Group (not named TOUGH GUYS DON’T DANCE).

See the shaggy corners of Downtown Los Angeles in vivid strokes from master cinematographer Robby Müller in real deal celluloid. (Jake Isgar)

Directed by Barbet Schroeder. United States. 1987. 100 minutes. 35mm print courtesy of Park Circus.
