Documentary on some weird dude who liked to draw
One of the best documentaries I’ve seen. He’s such a complex individual yet his art work explains him so clearly.
Kind of a disturbing guy but fascinating too. Very insightful look at his creative process
Great psychological documentary. His brother later committed suicide.
Both a devilish character study and exploration of art’s boundaries (or lack thereof).
A thorough depiction of Crumbs life and artwork. Worth a watch.
Filmmakers picked a good docu subject. R. Crumb, the cartoonist and his two weird brothers. A case study in dysfunction, madness, & art.
One of the craziest weirdest documentaries I have ever seen. What a ride, these Crumb brothers were geniuses but absolutely crazy.
Went in knowing absolutely nothing about the guy but the film gave a comprehensive view on his character and work. Strange but intriguing.
Be prepared to find out Crumb is a piece of Sh*t. But at least he knows it. Good film.
