Crumb (10-Sep-1994)

Director: Terry Zwigoff

Producers: Lynn O'Donnell; Terry Zwigoff

Keywords: Documentary, Biography

Engaging biopic of the life of underground comic artist Robert Crumb whose work revels in vulgarity and eccentricity and a probably-undeserved undercurrent of misogyny. Meet members of Crumb's dysfunctional family, including brother Charles, a virtual shut-in who committed suicide soon after this film was released. Honest and insightful portrait.
