Cinematheque: Comics to Comix - Crumb TONIGHT!

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Date: May 8
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Cinematheque, room 4070, Vilas Communication Hall
Description: Zwigoff's documentary is not so much about the artist Crumb as it is about the man. And his brothers. A deeply personal exploration of the aftermath of the Crumb boys' abusive childhood, "Crumb" is about mental illness, coping mechanisms, and yes, comix. At times very funny and at others deeply sad, the story not only casts light on the inspiration and motivation behind R. Crumb's work, it also introduces audiences to the work of his brothers. (Terry Zwigoff, USA, 1994, 35mm, color, 119 min.)
