Crumb and His Cheap Suit Serenaders(1)

There is only so much detail one can extract from a 16mm source and a certain amount of softness and graininess is certainly to be expected, especially when dealing with a low budget documentary film, but Criterion has done quite a good job transferring Crumb to high definition for this release. The source looks pretty clean, with only some minor instances of scratches and dirt here and there. All though things have been cleaned up, grain is still there and detail has not been smoothed into oblivion. Foreground detail is especially strong. Color reproduction is a little inconsistent, with flesh tones sometimes displaying a bit of red push and other times looking rather natural.

There’s not much to the soundtrack for Crumb. It appears on this Blu-ray release in a 1.0 PCM (48kHz/24-bit) configuration. Without much of a musical soundtrack and being very dialogue-driven as one might imagine, the 1.0 mix suits it just fine. Dialogue is clean, which is all you can ask for in a film like this.

Limited Edition Hand Signed by Robert Crumb New and Unread

Fritz the Cat is a comic strip created by Robert Crumb

Everyone in New York knew the underground comics. R. Crumb was a favorite. I didn’t think of them, they were just there.

The artist admits it’s a little scary to see his most fevered obsessions collected end to end like this, but fans will find Robert Crumb’s Sex Obsessions a fascinating peek inside an often tortured, always brilliantly talented mind, as well as an unparalleled collector’s item. This signed limited edition of 1,000 copies is a work of art in itself, with every part of the book—front and back covers, spine, and introductory pages—created for this project by Robert Crumb. Each book also comes with a pigment print by Mr. Crumb.

By the mid-1970s, long after Robert Crumb launched a comic-book revolution selling his Zap funny books out of a baby carriage on the fabled street corner of San Francisco’s Haight-Asbury in 1967, underground comix were in crisis. The Nixon administration was cracking down on “cultural filth” and also recreational drug use, and abetted by catastrophic Supreme Court decisions giving local jurisdictions the right to define obscenity and cracking down on head shops selling drug paraphernalia, the revolutionary comic books of Crumb, Gilbert Shelton, Jay Lynch, Trina Robbins, and company were faced with End of Days.

Robert Crumb’s short history of America - Open Culture

Now Crumb has selected his most intimately revealing comic strips and single page drawings to create a 258 page encyclopedic trip through his sexual psyche. All images were created between 1980 and 2006, and all strips are hand-colored for a lush vibrancy never seen in his comic books. In total the book features 14 complete stories, including My Troubles With Women, If I Were a King, A Bitchin’ Bod, and How To Have Fun With a Strong Girl, as well as 60 single page drawings.

Criterion has provided two strong audio commentaries on the disc itself and their usual premium-class booklet to go along with this release of Crumb. My personal preference between the two audio commentaries is the 1996 commentary featuring Zwigoff and film critic Roger Ebert, wherein the two have a very conversational, but also informative discussion as the film meanders by.
