Bukowski at Bellevue

Bukowski at Bellevue

In the spring of 1970 Charles Bukowski took his first plane trip for a poetry reading at Bellevue Community College in Washington state. That he was videotaped by two students apparently was later forgotten, but the tapes were recently rediscovered and have been released by Black Sparrow press. "Bukowski at Bellevue" gives us a fascinating glimpse of the man before he had to be concerned with how celebrity and financial security were affecting him. (It is said that this was only his fourth public reading.) This is Bukowski, then about 50, taken straight. No games, no irony, no self-consciousness--just an ordinary-looking guy, maybe hung over, sitting before a small group of students reading his work with gusto, humor and sensitivity. A man who clearly had lived the marginal life he wrote about with passion and at times a lyrical, even mystical beauty.

Peter P (ru) wrote: Confusing and awesome. Great performances from the cast, and a plot that gets more interesting and twisted with further viewing, who is telling the truth, what really happened, beats me, but it is pretty darn cool either way.

Huw G (ca) wrote: Nowhere near as bad as its ratings. That said, it's very much like they came up with a great ending and wrote a half-baked story just to get there. The script and actual filming both feel unfinished and scrappy, and Pegg is hardly used to his full potential. It does look good, and if you're a fan of Simon Pegg and of Australian film then you'll enjoy it, despite all the times you have to ask yourself what they were up to and if they ran out of time, money, interest, or all three.
