Hey Alison, yes indeedy, you’ve got the right Crumb family : R., Maxon, Charles. Filmed by R.’s friend Terry Zwigoff, the documentary is maybe #2 on my personal all-time fave-films list. (And for Dino fans,it’s not a stretch to say that there are many, many "Mascis moments" throughout.) As a psychological portrait of an artist, Crumb can’t be beat.
How about "Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?" with Burton/Taylor as a nice film corollary to the Dino take on relationships? A little extreme, maybe, but not far off…
