Hell YEA! I'm glad we finally got this exceptional film--always been one of my favorites. I know many hardcore Bukowski fans don't like this film adaptation of his book, but I enjoyed it immensely. It's a completely different medium, with another viewpoint and interpretation, so I never really try to compare movies based on a book anyway; it ruins the experience. 5/5 Stars.

I don't see how so many people can say this was a top film. The connection between Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway had no chemistry.The movie was shot in a Hollywood set that made the entire scene just a little too contrived to make their point about this darker side of life. Furthermore, Rourke's affect was super annoying. It wasn't a bad movie, but most definitely not a great movie.
