    Crazy Love

    1987Runtime:0 minutes
    Based on sordid tales (are there any other kind?) from Charles Bukowski's &NFi;Love Is a Dog from Hell&NFi_;, this movie deconstructs three crucial nights over the course of 20 years in the life of bumbling antihero Harry Voss as he runs the gamut from love to defeat. In turn, Voss also progresses from childhood to acne-scared teen to alcoholic adult. A nice blend of pathos and black comedy, Crazy Love will probably offend sensitive viewers!
