I believe this one is out of print... if someone knows differently, let me know.

ubuweb has the film streaming at their site. and, fyi, all ubuweb content is downloadable.

Yeah, this was a great one. Thanks.

I wonder what Bukowski had to say about the poetry of the others presented in the film. Does anyone here know what he thought about, for example, Allen Ginsberg?

As I recall, he didn't have any nice things to say about Ginsberg, although I only recall a couple of mentions scattered in places I can't remember.

Usually wrong.
Bukowski insulted Ginsberg at a party after a reading in San Francisco, if I'm remembering correctly. Ridiculed him as having written only one great poem, "Howl," and nothing else of value after that. I suspect he was jealous of Ginsberg's fame.

(As always, it's early in the morning, memory sucks, and I could have garbled the story...)
