Leisure drama spends so much time dealing with the characters' failed occupations and sexual conquests that it forgets to focus on the writing aspect which is beleived to be the whole point of it all; Matt Dillon is perfectly cast. Final Grade: C+

For this reason, Factotum seemed to me to be just a collection of scenes of an asshole getting drunk and losing jobs, and that's it. I didn't warm to him, he didn't show me any insights into the modern world. He was just a self-involved, self-important ...
