Name The Best Film About Alcoholics

There have been so many good movies made about drunks, you wonder why booze can inspire so many artists while ruining so many lives.

No matter. My personal favorites are:

Barfly, with Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway amazing as blowsy bottle buddies.

The Lost Weekend, Billy Wilder's riveting look at a man's demon obsession, complete with eye-popping hallucinations.

Upcoming Events

Leaving Las Vegas, a raw peek at alcoholism, which Oscar toasted with kegs of champagne.

And the best of all: The Days of Wine and Roses, with Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick superb as a couple that kept dragging each other to the nearest bar stool.

Your favorite, hiccup?
