Audience Reviews for Crumb

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.
