Crumb

Robert Crumb, the multi-talented underground comic book artist, is profiled in this unique, in-depth documentary portrait. Emerging from a dysfunctional family, it's a wonder that Crumb managed to channel his peculiar take on the world into a relatively socially acceptable form. Part of the great fascination of this film is the revelation that his brothers, both also quite gifted, were not so lucky.
