I was amazed by the similarities and parallels between Robert Crumb and Woody Allen. They even sound alike. The unquestionable talent, the neuroses and dislike of the media, the constant irritating whining, the narcissistic sense of entitlement and their attitudes to sex and women where they womanize while projecting themselves as the underdogs and trying to get away with as much as they possibly can. Both artists have amassed a substantial net worth yet they feel life has somehow short-changed them.

Excellent bio of three creative brothers from a difficult family. Great for Crumb fans,.. but perhaps a half hour too long (120 minutes) for others.

The camera followed the famed cartoonist Robert Crumb casually, looking at many of his works, and joining in the discussions between Crumb, his women, and his too equally, if not more, eccentric brothers. If you are a fan of Crumb you will find this documentary informative and entertaining.

A fascinating and intimate film following the underground comics writer and artist Robert Crumb, along with his family. Documentarian Terry Zwigoff must have really been entrenched with Crumb and family, as the film seems a natural picture of the complex subjects.

Sexual Content: Due to the nature of some of the cartoons presented in the film - nudity, strong sexual exploitation theme - audience should be 18 and over.
