Sweet!

Is that Bukowski’s voice?

Yes it is Bukowski’s voice from 70 minutes in hell.

Unwatchable, the Hollywood sound effects are completely misplaced-I only lasted 40 seconds or so…

I am also suprised by the rather weak text and ink splatter compositing.

rothermel

This is a really nice piece, I dig it. The style matches the content. I’ve seen some of his other work as well and I think he’s a real talent.
