Bukowski : born into this by John Dullaghan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles "Hank" Bukowski, Los Angeles-based poet, novelist and counterculture icon, succumbed to leukemia at age 73, on March 9, 1994.

The self-proclaimed "dirty old man" profiled by this film, was possibly a misunderstood romantic, and defiantly a major American poet. With rare footage, photos, readings, and interviews with friends, ex-lovers, and celebrity admirers, the film paints a straightforward introductory portrait of Bukowski, the patron saint of skid row poetry
