I only knew a little about Los Angeles poet and novelist Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) before seeing the fascinating film Bukowski: Born Into This (2003) on DVD. Having heard so much about his drinking and fighting, I was surprised that in the documentary he comes off as likable. About 45 books of Bukowski's writings were published in his lifetime. He wrote six novels, two of the best-known being Post Office (1971) and Ham on Rye (1982). He also authored many poems and short stories.

Before You Buy Blu-ray Discs
You love to watch movies and TV series on Blu-ray disc and DVD. However, the number of titles out on Blu-ray disc is limited. Also, in order to see the difference between Blu-ray and DVD, you must have a Blu-ray player that can play the discs along with an HDTV that has a large enough screen size and resolution. Be advised that not all Blu-ray players will play all Blu-ray discs. So make sure your Blu-ray player has the necessary firmware updates, or you'll risk experiencing playback problems.
Top Action Movies
Movies can show fierce battles, high-speed chases, and horrific explosions that most of us will never experience in real life, and I think such sequences properly used make films far more emotionally engaging. Here I've selected movies containing action that is well-integrated into the story. This is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites, and it doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on action movies. For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies.

DVD Pick: The Threepenny Opera (Criterion...
Die Dreigroschenoper was a big hit on the Berlin stage, and in 1930 a movie company began the process of adapting it for the screen. The film director was G.W. Pabst, whose movies were among the most artistically successful during the 1920s. Pabst's films are marked by social and political concerns, which made him a good fit for the Brecht-Weill material and helped him to add the proper visual dimension. The movie version of Die Dreigroschenoper, which was released in 1931, is a masterpiece.

The Blues Brothers is a 1980 comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd that has become part of American pop culture consciousness. For me, it's the music that gives the movie its exuberance.

This movie is based on a true story that began in 1974 when an IRA bomb exploded in England, killing several people. Soon Gerry Conlon, a petty thief from Belfast, was convicted of the bombing. Several of Conlon’s friends and relatives, including his father, were also jailed. But after languishing behind bars for 14 years, Conlon and his father were completely exonerated and released.
DVD Pick: "Carmen"
Opening with shots of a bloody bull being tormented by a matador, Francesco Rosi's Carmen is a crowd-pleasing screen adaptation of Georges Bizet's 1875 French-language opera. In addition to shooting at locations in southern Spain, Rosi assembled a cast of photogenic singer-actors. I believe these elements, along with the fact that some of the music is familiar to many people, make Rosi's Carmen the most accessible of the filmed operas for the general moviegoing public.

Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers is not as deep or resonant as some of his other movies, but I nonetheless found it reasonably entertaining. I was impressed by the film's beautiful visual style.
