Based on the novel by cult author Charles Bukowski and adapted by Bent Hamer and Jim Stark.
Henry Chinaski (Matt Dillon) works in factories and warehouses to support what he really wants to do: drink, bet on the horses, take up with women as rootless as he is and, above all, write stories that no one wants to publish. Factotum is the story of a man living on the edge, of a writer who is willing to risk everything to make sure that his life is his poetry.
“Arguably on of the best adaptations of Bukowski’s work” – Variety
“Dillon is fantastic…his best performance in a long time” – The Times
