I watched this new show Californication, with David Duchovny playing the character Hank Moody. I was told that he is loosly based on bukowski, and there are certain similarities, but i feel as a bit fool asking this, since i thought I new, just at little bit about Bukowski, but did Bukowski have a writers block?
I'm new to Bukowski, so I've not read alot about him, I've seen a few movies about him, but mostly I just read his work, so I have not come across anything yet, where a writers block has been mentioned.
Finally, three or four years late I watched a couple of episodes and it's completely obvious and dull crap.
Must have been dreamd up by some horny fifteen-year-old, like, let's see, if I walk out of the door five beautiful women bend down to give me a blowjob ... but why should they do this? Oh, because I'm a rockstar-like-writer!
It has nothing to do with Bukowski whatsoever, except what a horny fifteen year old would might get out of reading Women.
No groundbreaking news on this show here, just wanted to share my deep and meaningful insights.
Hank in Californication is a lot more like the character John Ritter plays in Skin Deep than Bukowski or Chinaski. Skin Deep is a great movie, by the way, about an alcoholic, woman crazed writer. Very funny.
