SUNDAY PICK | Classic documentary “Crumb” takes a close look at one of America’s strangest artists


A great documentary can make even a mundane subject fascinating; when the subject is as deeply weird and widely acclaimed as the illustrator Robert Crumb, the result is indispensable. That’s the case with Terry Zwigoff’s 1994 Crumb, a fascinating look at the defiantly independent artist. Was Crumb, controversial for his highly sexualized drawings of women and caricatures of African-Americans, the original hipster racist? At the Trylon Microcinema on July 1, you can see Crumb and decide for yourself.
