“The Confessions of Robert Crumb” (1987)

A 55-minute BBC show about the extraordinarily talented cartoonist Robert Crumb:

We’ve also watched the newer feature-length documentary titled “Crumb” a few years back, and it’s available on Netflix (though not YT). That one though is very disturbing and goes into details about his childhood and family, and it shows how much worse off his brothers were. Definitely eye-opening, to say the least, and parts of that film run through my mind at random and disturb my days.

Anyway, Robert Crumb came back across my radar today because my friend mentioned he’d created a comic strip to accompany the book of Genesis in the Bible, and it’s supposed to have made a big splash, so this evening I’m going to track down a copy and order it for my friend for his birthday.
