Win 'Factotum' Books and CDs ... TODAY!
On behalf of IFC Films, Exclusive Magazine is pleased to announce another terrific summer film – 'FACTOTUM', starring Matt Dillon, Lili Taylor and Marisa Tomei.
Directed by Bent Hamer, and based on the 1975 novel by acclaimed author Charles Bukowski, Factotum (meaning “person of many jobs”) is the story of a writer unburdened by societal convention, and his journey of self-discovery. This writer, the character of Henry Chinaski, is widely known to be Bukowski’s alter ego.
Henry Chinaski (Dillon) considers himself a writer, and on occasion writes. Mostly he quests for the booze and women that sidetrack and seduce, rather than inspire greatness. When he falls for Jan (Taylor), the soulful connection fails to save either from their self-destructive ways, and the relationship totters between earnest connection and reflective loathing.
With exceptional performances that capture the intoxicated journey though life and art, Factotum is the story of a man living on the edge; a writer who risks everything, tries anything, and finds poetry in life’s pleasure and pain.
'Factotum' hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on August 18th, then expands to select cities nationwide in the weeks that follow.
