Recently immortalized in a feature film from Terry Zwigoff, this documentary — the only officially sanctioned film about his life — reveals the life of underground comic pioneer Robert Crumb. Crumb used comic books as a confessional for the perverse fantasies and visions that formed in reaction to a hostile world. As a child, Crumb avidly read and began to create comic books with his brothers-and ever since-his style has continued to evolve. He emerged among the hippies at Haight and Ashbury streets in San Francisco, and Crumb continues as an iconoclast who’s loved, hated, feared and misunderstood by an ever growing number of readers. The Confessions of Robert Crumb tells the story of the incredible artistry that shocks and satirizes every strata and dark hole of society.
