Factotum

Matt Dillon stars as Charles Bukowski's alter ego Hank Chinaski in this appropriately sleazy adaptation of Bukowski's semiautobiographical novel (weren't they all?). Since this is based on Bukowski, it's about a guy who hangs out in bars in Los Angeles, gets drunk a lot and occasionally tries to write. Nothing much happens, but it is kind of funny in a bleak, lightless, totally suicidal way. The cast, including Lili Taylor, Fisher Stevens and Marisa Tomei, doesn't look smelly enough. 94 minutes R.
