Straight documentary of Robert Crumb, his brothers and some of his women. The camera follows him around and tries to minimize the interviews as much as possible. Interludes with comics and jazz. Thatís the style, nothing special. If anything it shows how American Splendor nailed the cast perfectly. The film is more then long and drags at points. Plus Crumbís family is in very sad states with really fucked up relations with each other and humanity. The result is a very draining film, a trap which American Splendor avoids.
