Summary "Author Charles Bukowski was one of those rare writers whose work created a myth of epic proportions around its creator. This film traces his extraordinary life, from an abusive childhood through decades of poverty and alcoholism; numerous menial jobs and turbulent relationships; through 14 years as a postal employee; 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 feature film based on his early life. Director John Dullaghan spent seven years researching and shooting this documentary, conducting dozens of interviews with Bukowski's wife Linda, relatives, neighbours, post office workers, girlfriends and other poets as well as Bono, Sean Penn, Harry Dean Stanton, Barbet Schroeder and Taylor Hackford.
