Bukowski : born into this by John Dullaghan( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 365 libraries worldwide
Charles "Hank" Bukowski, Los Angeles-based poet, novelist and counterculture icon, succumbed to leukemia at age 73, on March 9, 1994. Written off by critics as a drunken blowhard, his work was a slashing rebuke to polite academic formalism, cutting through the labyrinthine indulgent difficulty of much modern verse; his poems are poems anyone can understand. 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
