Brilliant job posting this. Hackford knows how to make a doc. Refreshing change from the indifferent video we are bombarded with; selective focus, tight portraits and wonderful editing. I never heard Bukowski's pronounced hubris captured here.
So glad to have seen the whole documentary now. It has a really nice style to it: short, intimate, to the point and most of all not filled with jabbering celebs. It's a pretty funny watch as well. The opening scene is hilarious (does the lady call him a Cola/Pola? :confused: ) and as per usual Buk's different attempts at accents crack me up.
Also it's great to see the interview with Linda King as well. (her laugh is wonderful)
My favorite part was the aftermath of the City lights party. Seeing Buk all bloodied was classic. Also, it was classic watching him call the kid a fag to Norse and then explaining that it was the wrong thing to call him....
