Crumb

Edition 1995
119' - 1994 - Comedy, Biography, Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Terry Zwigoff Composer: David Boeddinghaus With: Robert Crumb, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Charles Crumb
This documentary focuses on the controversial artist Robert Crumb (best known for his cover art for the first Janis Joplin LP and the adaptation of his randy character Fritz the Cat into an animated feature by Ralph Bakshi). In this portrait we learn about Crumb's peculiar and cloistered upbringing in Philadelphia, meet with the eccentric members of his family, hear ex-lovers discourse explicitly about their relationship with the artist, observe what inspires him and see how all of the above figures into a talent that Time Magazine art critic Robert Hughes calls "the Brueghel of the 20th Century."
