Charmingly funny
15 March 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Assuming you know who Charles Bukowski is, this is a very funny short film about a 12 year old boy who's reading Bukowski's Pleasure of the Damned. Late one night while on vacation in a hotel with his parents he takes on the personality of the writer,what happens is the movie.

This is could have been a few minutes longer, but as it stands now this is a near perfect little confection that makes you laugh as it charms your pants off.

I really liked this a great deal.

My one proviso about the film and about the rating is that you have to at least know who Charles Bukowski was. If you don't know this will play less perfectly.
