Beautiful, interesting, incredible cinema.
Documentary on Charles Bukowski, author of ‘Notes of a Dirty Old Man’, ‘Love Is a Dog from Hell’, and the autobiographical novels, ‘Women’, ‘Hollywood’, and ‘Post Office’.
The archive footage speaks for itself - Bukowski, the dysfunctional brute - raw humanity in all of its poetic yet loathsome muscularity and vulnerability.
Good, good stuff. I like how this was a documentary where its own subject did most of the talking instead of a bunch supposedly relevant sycophants. The archival footage was so full of character and seemed to tell more than the facts.
Surprised how much footage they have of him. Great setup and great follow through. Entertaining all the way through, especially for a Chinaski fan.
Well-reflected Bukowskian rawness. Depiction of a tough man who nevertheless carried incredible sweetness, dedication and passion to writing and women.
Every Bukowski fan must watch this. Actually, whether you're a fan of his or not, you gotta see this
Pretty good, but what the hell was Bono doing there?
Thank God he saved that tiny little spark.
Ok.. we've got the poems .. we've got Bukowski. Let's go.
