    A fine documentary. I admire Crumb's honesty. Outsider status aside, I think he taps into something real and subconscious that a lot of people can relate to. Instead of thinking about what makes him "weird" or "crazy," it might be more instructive to consider in what ways he is relatable. 9 years ago

    The viewer progresses gradually into a sense of awe at Crumb's utter oddness and peculiar worldview; then, as we meet the more bizarre members of his family, Crumb takes on a comparative normality. A fascinating look at the obsessive weird genius whose art was the foundation and backbone of the underground comics industry. 11 years ago

    Astounding content in this film. The sexuality/perversity is really the lowest rung in terms of what shocks here. Its revelations border on the sublime. 8 years 6 months ago
