The movie isn't a testimonial or a valentine. It's unpredictable and galvanizing: an empathetic portrait of the artist that also unveils a trenchant view of an American family's dashed illusions.
Crumb's sense of humor is his saving personal grace and the movie's insurance policy against total immersion into the morbid. But just so you know, Crumb fully earns its most revealing screen credit: 'David Lynch Presents.'
Zwigoff's film rarely feels exploitative, and the fascination of Crumb and his family should not disguise the director's skill and sensitivity in marshalling his material.
Crumb may be rough around the edges, even occasionally tedious, but what Zwigoff manages to uncover is honest, captivating and strangely visceral.
(An) offbeat and often uncomfortably revealing portrait of the legendary underground comic book artist Robert Crumb and his brothers, Maxon and Charles...
an absolutely disarming documentary and one of the very best of its kind
Filled with haunting images, only a few of which are created by the hand of R. Crumb.
Among the all-time great American documentaries.
This brilliant docu is not just a portrait of a compulsive artist, but also a deep inquiry into the mysteries of art, creativity, mental illness and family bind.
Sporadically intriguing but ultimately overrated...
Zwigoff's biography of Crumb is both absorbing and repellent, and it may be one of the best documentaries to make the connection between creativity and craziness.
The documentary profiles Robert Crumb, a cartoonist with a fucked up family and a perverse artistic sensibility.
A film with depth and probing intellect, Crumb is occasionally uncomfortable and devilishly funny. Its subject is unabashed in his perversion, but the film's real strength is its ability to look beyond the surface of things and give its audience a glimpse into the source of Crumb's disquietude.
Overall, more about the man than his art, Crumb is an interesting profile.
Odd and wonderful study about Robert Crumb and underground comics with a dark view of America, sex and family.
I have a hard time recommending this. The film is a typical talking head doc about comics artist Robert Crumb, with all the traits you'd expect -- childhood, interviews with family and friends, examples of his work. It's definitely interesting, and the guy is a talented artist to be sure. But his style of art, his subject matter and just his general oddball personality make me uncomfortable. This is a man I would not like being stuck in an elevator with.
You have probably seen Robert Crumb's images somewhere, be it on a comic book, a set of mud flaps, or in your mind at night. Crumb's documentary is an examination of what led him to what could have been a lucrative existence as a 1960's icon that he shunned. Yes, Crumb is one of the few people with a little artistic credibility. What's interesting about the life of Crumb is how much of an influence his brothers were on his career and the fact they both appeared to have derailed in their lives with his older brother Cahrles committing suicide when the
