The Man with the Beautiful Eyes

Sunday, 26 April, 2015

“The poetry of Charles Bukowski deeply inspires many of its readers. Sometimes it just inspires them to lead the dissolute lifestyle they think they see glorified in it, but other times it leads them to create something compelling of their own,” writes Colin Marshall in Open Culture.

Marshall continues: “Jonathan Hodgson’s adaptation of The Man with the Beautiful Eyes puts vivid, colorful imagery to Bukowski’s late poem that draws from his childhood memories of a mysterious, untamed young man in a run-down house whose very existence reminded him “that nobody wanted anybody to be strong and beautiful like that, that others would never allow it.”
