Revolting and powerful, Crumb and his family are great examples of how mental illness and skewed morality can just fuck up entire families. Have you seen American Splendor yet? Not the same really but it's about Harvey Pekar who was friends with Crumb along with being a contributer to is comic of the same name of the film, it's very charming.
>>61743881 I think it's better just experienced, it covers a bit of his early life and career but it's primarily focused on who he and his family are, which is just a really screwed up bunch of people.
>>61743925 As plainly as i can describe, i felt foggy and almost surreal watching it. Like another anon on here said i took alot of interest in Charles(even more so than r.crumb) so the ending caught me off guard but in a way didnt at all. I think after letting it sink in i mught say its not particularly about a fucked up mentally-ill family but rather the one who got away while still being able to stay to himself and even exposing his true nature
>>61744606 >catalyst for their mental imbalance It seemed like it was all sexual. Robert loved to be dominated, big amazonian women, playing up his image of being a pathetic little kid. The hippy loved dominating, forced sex, public, voyeur And the hermit was a pedo Having fucked up sexuality makes you feel like a freak and a terrible person, making you unable to develop proper social skills. Where boys get their sexual fetishes from I don't know. Childhood experiences, early sexual development? I would think the mother had a bigger role in it.
>>61744606 >R. Crumb, in his own handwriting, reveals the obscure "Chinese Curse" placed on their violent marine father, that has, (possibly), been the karmic reason behind the grim childhoods of the Crumb children.
This essay in Crumb Family Comics makes a pretty strong case that his family is literally cursed.
