Plot Summary: Based on the acclaimed second novel by Charles Bukowski. "Factotum" was published in 1975. 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.
