On his precarious journey from poet to screenwriter he encounters a host of well-known stars and lays bare the absurdity and buiowski There are many scandalous books about life in Hollywood, but none as poetic and dangerous as this, a fictional chronicle of Bukowski’s experiences writing the screenplay for Barfly.

Joan’s view of Bukowski is not one of idol worship, nor is it a hackjob, but an honest portrayal of Bukowski, the artist brilliant!

And, let me be up front about something: I felt like he became a boring old man trying to keep up with his old dirty image. Yes, the story is decent, if you want to follow the seemingly autobiographical travails of an aging self-depreciating writer and drunk called upon to produce a screenplay he doesn’t really want to do, and his acidic send-up of Hollywood both people and entertainment industry, from the parties and ass-kissing to the slums and backstabbing that at times feels as though through the eyes of someone perpetually stoned and cynical.
