AMERICAN SPLENDOR / THE CONFESSIONS OF ROBERT CRUMB

Synopsis:

Tuesday, January 26th @ 7:00 PM


AMERICAN SPLENDOR

“Sad, tender, wise and beautiful film... It's a profound tribute to lives lived on the fringes of society -- to the introspective loners who are the most observant chroniclers of our times.” — Variety

In American Splendor, Harvey Pekar finds love, family and a creative voice through the underground comic books he creates, but still can't manage to find the quicker supermarket checkout line. Ordinary life is pretty complex stuff. (2003, color, 100 min. DIR: Shari Berman, Robert Pulcini)

THE CONFESSIONS OF ROBERT CRUMB

In this 1987 BBC commissioned documentary, Robert Crumb presents himself through a series of tongue-in-cheek scenes and interviews. The confessions include his loneliness, obsessions with women, bewilderment by fame, and his nervous breakdown in 1973. (1987, color, 60 min. WRITER: Robert Crumb)
