Bukowski: Born Into This: “‘The engaging documentary Born Into This peers beyond the myth of lovably cantankerous counter-culture author-hero Charles Bukowski.

‘‘When you get the shit kicked out of you long enough… you’ll have the tendency to say what you really mean,’ states Charles Bukowski in the engaging new documentary Bukowski: Born Into This. That terse observation hints at the brutality of Bukowski’s childhood, when his father would beat him with a razor strop. It also affords a context in which to view his famously stripped-down, no-nonsense literature, charged with autobiographical detail, an urgent, acerbic world-view and that balls-to-the-wall take on booze, sex, poverty and the daily grind.’ (Greylodge BitTorrent download).”
