Bukowski: born into this - John Dullaghan

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Bukowski: born into this is the first comprehensive documentary of Charles Bukowski and while long time fans will find confirmation of the Bukowski they'd always imagined, there are plenty of surprises in store. The film traces his extraordinary life, from an abusive childhood through decades of poverty and alcoholism; numerous menial jobs and turbulent relationships; and his eventual international celebrity as a poet, novelist and underground cult icon. In his lifetime, Bukowski became most widely known as the screenwriter and real-life model for Barfly, the film based on his early life.
