Crazy Love

Synopsis: Three 'Bukowskian' torrid nights in the life of a man in search of love. Harry Voss, 12, is young and naive. Love, for him, is romantic love between princes and princesses demurely kissing each other on the mouth. His father is a hero who kidnapped his mother and married her on a lonely mountain peak... Later on, he'll do the same. But Harry has a lot to learn. He also learns that there are handsome men and ugly ones, that love can be unfair. That one can find comfort in drinking... but above all he learns that man is capable of anything - absolutely anything! - to get his fair share of love.

my last day at school

The school dance

The girls were sweating.

And not just from dancing...

- Do you use the cream I gave you?

- Every day, but it doesn't help much

- You must be patient

- I've been patient for two years

lt'll go away eventually

And if you don't scratch

you won't have any scars

Here, try this.

And come back next week

So what do you want to be,


Not a doctor, for sure

Lisa Velani

I'll f*ck her tonight

or my name's Harry Frankenstein

Harry Voss

Harry Voss

- Didn't dare show himself, huh?

- With that ugly spotty mug of his...

Dreaming again?

You think too much

lt'll give you a headache

Your diploma

Wondered if you wanted

to come to the school dance

- Why you asking me?

- Cos I don't want to go on my own

And I like to be the best looking

I don't like parties.

Too many people

- Then we'll go somewhere else

- Where?

Where there's no people

What you doing?

Let the wind carry my message.

In my soul there is a song

She's the answer to all my problems

Though her heart doesn't know it yet

- I didn't know you were a poet

- It's easy when you're in love

Know who I wrote that for?

Read the first letter of each line

I love her... I love them all,

but they aren't interested in me

So come to the dance

and you can read it to her

Are you nuts?

I can't even talk to her

It's easy when you're in love

You think this is what women

dream of?

You don't know women.

They can look right through men

When Lisa looks at you,

she won't see your spots...

she'll see the poet in your eyes

If you don't do it tonight

you never will


The Future Beckons

See her anywhere?

- Hello Marina

- Hello, handsome

- Will you dance with me later?

- Of course

Don't forget, eh?

Friend of mine

Hey, she's on her own

Charles Bukowski

Henry Charles Bukowski (born Heinrich Karl Bukowski; August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles. His work addresses the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over 60 books. The FBI kept a file on him as a result of his column, Notes of a Dirty Old Man, in the LA underground newspaper Open City.Bukowski published extensively in small literary magazines and with small presses beginning in the early 1940s and continuing on through the early 1990s. As noted by one reviewer, "Bukowski continued to be, thanks to his antics and deliberate clownish performances, the king of the underground and the epitome of the littles in the ensuing decades, stressing his loyalty to those small press editors who had first championed his work and consolidating his presence in new ventures such as the New York Quarterly, Chiron Review, or Slipstream." Some of these works include his Poems Written Before Jumping Out of an 8 Story Window, published by his friend and fellow poet Charles Potts, and better known works such as Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame. These poems and stories were later republished by John Martin's Black Sparrow Press (now HarperCollins/Ecco Press) as collected volumes of his work. In 1986 Time called Bukowski a "laureate of American lowlife". Regarding Bukowski's enduring popular appeal, Adam Kirsch of The New Yorker wrote, "the secret of Bukowski's appeal. . . [is that] he combines the confessional poet's promise of intimacy with the larger-than-life aplomb of a pulp-fiction hero."Since his death in 1994, Bukowski has been the subject of a number of critical articles and books about both his life and writings, despite his work having received relatively little attention from academic critics during his lifetime. more…
