5.0 out of 5 stars BEST DOCUMENTARY EVER MADE, 3 July 2004
This review is from: Crumb [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
That's no exaggeration. You do not have to be a fan of Robert Crumbs work or of the comic book medium at all to appreciate the disturbing honesty of this film. The Crumb family - Robert, Charles and Maxon, as well as their mother - allow Zwigoff total access to their lives and pasts, creating a mezmerising portrait of a profoundly disfunctional family whose members found sanctuary in drawing comics together. Robert of course went on to be the most famous, but both Charles and Maxon are (or in Charles's case,were) artists of the highest calibre (as well as being two of the most bizarre human beings ever captured on film). The soundtrack, made up of selected tracks from Robert and Zwigoff's personal collection of blues and ragtime 78s is a wonderful bonus. Tracks that may otherwise have disappeared into obscurity have been lovingly restored and serve as a perfect foil for the numeous montages of R. Crumb's unique talent. I absolutely love this movie and can't imagine why anyone else wouldn't.
