I can't wait to get the newly re-issued Crumb from the Criterion collection. This is my favorite documentary, and I'm looking forward to
the special features:
• New, restored high-definition digital transfer
• 2010 audio commentary with Zwigoff
• 2006 with Zwigoff and critic Roger Ebert
• Outtakes and deleted scenes
• Stills gallery
• A booklet featuring an essay by critic Jonathan Rosenbaum
Terry Zwigoff's landmark 1995 film is an intimate documentary portrait of underground artist Robert Crumb, whose unique drawing style and sexually and racially provocative subject matter have made him a household name in popular American art. Zwigoff candidly and colorfully delves into the details of Crumb's incredible career, as well as his past, including his family of reclusive eccentrics, some of the most remarkable people you'll ever see on-screen. At once a profound biographical portrait, a riotous examination of a man's controversial art, and a devastating look at a troubled family, Crumb is a genuine American original.
