Bukowski: Born Into This

Charles Bukowski, celebrated blue collar novelist, poet, alcoholic and sonorous bullshitter, was well known in Los Angeles long before his autobiographical novels delivered searing portraits of a Southern California underclass that
would resonate worldwide. The meandering but genial documentary Bukowski: Born Into This,
an official selection at the 2003 Sundance Festival, looks back in time
to this era, as well as sifting through an abusive childhood, a half
dozen turbulent relationships and a variety of low-paying, non-creative
menial occupations that included 14 years as a postal employee. For the full review, from IGN, click here.
