Synopsis:
In this definitive and engrossing documentary John Dullaghan traces the extraordinary life of Charles Bukowski from an abusive childhood through decades of poverty and alcoholism, numerous menial jobs and turbulent relationships to his eventual international celebrity as a poet, novelist and underground cult figure.
Dullaghan spent seven years researching and shooting, conducting dozens of interviews with relatives, girl-friends, colleagues, neighbours and friends culminating in a fitting portrait of this literary icon Offering the most revealing look yet of Bukowski and his work, the result is a film that peels off the hardened mask of the mythic Bukowski to reveal the insecure, loving and extremely human man -and artist- underneath.
