    This documentary zig-zags between being an inspiring story about a man using his uncompromised talent to garner himself acclaim to becoming a stripped-down look at the disturbed psyche that produced the images he drew. The movie brings up interesting points, such as the fuzzy line between pornography and art and the paradox of a creative mind getting commercial success. The movie also definitely doesn't leave anything to the imagination - all of the characters are stripped down to their most bare states (it's not surprising that his sisters both declined interviews). Absolutely fascinating. Full Review »

    I echo Dave's sentiment. I never knew about Crumb before I watched this movie (around 10 years ago) but, well, once seen - never forgotten. A great insight into a fascinating character: a cartoon character made flesh. Full Review »

    Captivating, even if art is not your thing. Disturbing and emotionally involved... I never knew the man or his art, now I feel like he is a childhood friend who I haven't talked to in years and wonder where the hell he might be. Full Review »
