An evening of Antisocial Comedies

The Innerspace presents a double feature of bizarre black comedies in The Underdog, including BARFLY, the only film written by alcoholic curmudgeon Charles Bukowski, plus a Blu-Ray screening of THE WEIRDO, the little known masterpiece from misanthropic sleazo Andy Milligan that may have inspired FORREST GUMP!

8:15 - BARFLY 1987
Directed by Barbet Schroeder
Written by Charles Bukowski
100 minutes
Mickey Rourke is extremely well-cast as an alcoholic LA writer (more or less Bukowski) living from day to day. Frank Stallone is a bartender at his local who has a regular nightly punch-up with him. Faye Dunaway is his new drunken girlfriend, Alice Krige helps get him published and Jack Nance is a P.I. Very good stuff from Cannon and Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope.

10:00 - THE WEIRDO 1989
Written & Directed by Andy Milligan
91 minutes
Forget THE ROOM… meet THE WEIRDO! Donny is a shy loner who would like nothing more than to be left alone, but his life is little more than endless abuse and harassment. Abandoned by his family, bullied tirelessly by the local roughnecks, Donny seeks refuge in the ramshackle shed in which he lives and lonely walks in the woods. One day Donny meets Jenny, a crippled young girl who sympathizes with Donny, and the two begin an innocent romance. Donny’s life seems to brighten for one brief moment, but Donny and Jenny’s love is rejected by everyone in town. Then, faced with eviction from his beloved shed, a visit from Donny’s destitute, estranged mother – who plans to sell him into slavery (!) – threatens to push the poor “weirdo” over the edge…!
