This critically acclaimed film is an intimate documentary portrait of R. Crumb directed by long-time friend Terry Zwigoff. Shot over a period of six years, it traces Crumb’s life and career from his strict Catholic upbringing to his emergence as a leading figure in the underground comic movement and ultimately ends with his move to a new home in France with his wife and daughter. It features interviews with a colorful cast of characters including family, friends, colleagues, critics, and ex-lovers. Crumb is at once a profound biographical portrait, a riotous examination of a man’s controversial art, and a devastating look at a troubled family. It was named the best film of 1994 by the late Gene Siskel and won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995.
