Blade (1998)



Thanks for the recommendation. I thought it was a well made film: good direction, good acting. Matt Dillon made the Bukowski-like character almost charismatic. The writer romanticised the alcoholic, making him more like a Jack Kerouac or Neal Cassady type.

The glaring error was that Dillon not only never seemed to be drunk, but he was always clear eyed and fairly clean looking-- not possible for a drunk of his type.

Lili Taylor as Dillon's fellow dipsomaniac squeeze was first rate, and seemed more true to life.

I think the story would have been better told set in the 1940s, like the book, rather than in 2005. That probably would have added a prohibitive amount of production costs though.

Dillon seems a natural at portraying druggies and drunks. He was pretty good in 1989's Drugstore Cowboy, with the redoubtable William S. Burroughs in the cast..
