Presented by David Lynch, Terry Zwigoff’s film Crumb is a sometimes hilariously funny but often disturbing journey into the mysterious and creepy world of underground artist Robert Crumb and his brilliant, talented but deeply dysfunctional family; his recluse mother and his two brothers (both artists), Charles and Maxon. Crumb’s twisted, violent and at times even outright pornographic cartoons are witnesses of his utter disgust of the American society and culture and made him world-famous in the 60’s when he created Mr. Natural, Fritz the Cat, the Keep On Truckin’ cartoons and record sleeves for musicians like Janis Joplin.


  • Riveting... as gripping as it is harshly funny. Come Oscar time, it should be one of the films nominated for best documentary
    Stephen Holden, New York Times
  • One of the ten best films of the year. Real creepy, real funny ... amazing
    Richard Corliss, Time
  • 4*'s. Hilarious and Heartbreaking!"
    Thelma Adams, New York Post
  • Very frank, intimate look at a phenomenally popular artist and his extraordinarily dysfunctional family, Crumb is an excellent documentary
    Todd McCarthy, Variety
  • A haunting glimpse into the capriciousness of fate in the workings of a single family.
    Janet Maslin, New York Times
  • Sex, obsession, madness, death and a lot of laughs. I don't expect to see a better movie this year
    Paul Zimmerman, Film Threat Magazine
